This year, the office where I work decided to celebrate Christmas a little differently. Instead of having our usual Christmas party, we decided to go to a nearby island to relax by the beach! It was AH-mazingly beautiful!
On our way to the island, we stopped by one of Panama's most famous historic areas: Portobelo in Colon. The ruins of all the canyons and forts are so impressive!
After about an hour and a half drive, we finally reached the gorgeous beach. The water was such a beautiful shade of blue!
Then we got in one of the small little boats and were on our way to our final destination: Isla Grande, a nearby beach island. The boat ride over was so relaxing with the refreshing summer breeze.
Isla Grande was soooooo much prettier than I remembered! There were tall palm trees, white sand, and clear waters. We spent most of our time swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing on the grass. Talk about a little peace of heaven on Earth right?!
Hope you are all having a great week!
