"Great idea to start with Spanish classes in San Antonio. I recommend individual classes. The common Panamanian speak fast and with a dialect, like you go to a small town in Texas trying to understand their English."

Thanks for connecting. We're looking at hopefully next summer, but so much to learn.

Hello Bob,

My wife and I are members of Boquete Birders and I lead a monthly walk for around town for tourist and begining birders we call the backyard birdwalk.  I think our record species for the town walk is about 53-54.  Panama has 59 species of hummingbirds and we have been lucky enough to have 21 of these visit our feeders.  There is no shortage of birds here and one of the reasons we setted here 6 years ago.  Keep in touch and I'd be happy to point you at some good birding.

Later,

J (Jack)
