Repost requested!! My original post was NOT meant for advertising or critical advice. Bud's wife ask about it out of curiosty. Another person did a critical overview of the project. That was NOT Necessary on my Blog. My blog is for information on things to do in Chiriqui. So, to stop any speculation on what this project is going to be I took the blog down. We had great visit to the island and that is ALL the Blog was about. We watched a ferry take cars across from Boca Chica landing across to Isla Boca Brava and it took about five minutes. The road down the middle of the island all the way to the west end will be improved soon. If you've never traveled all the way on the island from east to west I recommend it. Take plenty of water and some food. The new four lane from David to Boca Chica has really reduced the time for the trip---about 45 minutes. I drive from Boquete to El Reys in David in about 25 minutes. And, the rough highway from the Interamericana to Boca Chica is suppose to be repaired this year (rumor fingers crossed) and that might take a few minutes off of the trip. So, this is a nice day trip with little drive time involved. If you are retired and in a hurry in Panama you have created yourself problems. This culture is slow like NO OTHER!!!!! It took me about a year to learn how to BE RETIRED. Now, it's fun. Fun is what it's all about in retirement.
