Hotel Paraiso Miramar

For the last 5, or is it 6 days, I have camped in the grounds of the Hotel Paraiso Miramar near San Blas. Come here.

Why go anywhere else?

It is paradise. Perched on a cliff top overlooking the ocean, it has a sprawling park of huge trees and coconut groves. There are 2 swimming pools, hot water showers, flush toilets, a restaurant, fast wifi, hence all the recent posts, and above all birds!

This morning I stumble out of the camper at 8:00 ish and see this.

Black Necked Magpie Jay. They are huge!
Yellow-winged Cacique
Lineated woodpecker. Poor photo – hands shaking with excitement.
Iguana taking morning air.
Vermilion Flycatcher
Meadowlark – less exotic but beautiful.

There were also Citreoline Trogons but the photos are too poor to expose here. All that in the first 15 minutes of the day encourages you to lie down for the rest.

Frigate birds I have seen previously, usually flying very high and far away. I blurt, “Look, quick, a frigate bird!”

A fleet of Frigate Birds! Outside the restaurant where I usually eat.
The sort of stuff I eat.

I have to get out of here!

    I don’t think you need to rush away. But I suppose there must be plenty of flies – I wonder whether they freeze in terror when they see that vermilion breast on their tail. I would.
