My experience with the place. Past. The first time I went to Capurgana was in the company of uncles and brothers, was 13 years old was happy to find such a nice place. Remember traveling to Capurgana boat traveling the blue sea, upon arrival we stayed in a hotel as for 5 days in which we all, we went to tour the town and its main streets, bathed in the sea and sun on the beach we took. I remember well that we went to a waterfall called the sky to get to it you had to walk quite as was in a place far, we bathe in it the water was clear and cold. Another day we visited the Colombian-Panamanian this is from the village of Sapzurro and honey are also sites with beach and sea, that day we took pictures, and then we visited Sapsurro Panamanian territory that is “La Miel”could meet some people, see Panamanian products such as beer, and Panamanian dollar.
Present Every two months I visit my grandparents who live in Turbo and stay for a few days, and as capurgana is near and I’ll take this boat with my friends of Turbo. We will always capurgana to rest, go for a walk and swim at the beach. At night we went to do the rumba, have cocktails and dinner.
I wish I could have my honeymoon with my husband in Capurgana for a while we would stay in one of the best hotels with the best room and the best care. We would have a romantic dinner on the beach with a delicious meal, some musicians would play a serenade and then we would walk barefoot seaside or would go out every night dancing at clubs. Every day we are there we would come out to dive, would be in a transept crossing the sea and would visit other districts, would we would go horseback riding or hiking several of the most beautiful places Capurgana, We would take pictures everywhere, would buy crafts and souvenirs for our family.
