Crossing the Border

The caribbean side of Panama and Costa Rica are known for Banana plantations. Back in the late 1800’s American Corporations were growing bananas in this region for the USA. They built a train line to be able to transport the bananas. This photo is of the train line crossing over the border of Panama and Costa Rica. It is not used today. The bananas are now shipped out of Almirante instead.

Vulcan Baru

Vulcan Baru is the largest mountain in Panama. It sits at 3,474m (11,398 ft) above sea level. I hiked up and back in a day. The sunrise is spectacular. I got a chance to see the Caribbean and the Pacific Oceans at the same time for the top.

On the top of the volcano sits this cross. To me it was a reminder that every day is a gift that is given to us and we should treat each day as it is our last.
