To our great surprise, the term “water taxi”, or “lancha” in Spanish, is commonly used throughout the Caribbean Islands. We were quick to realize that these water taxis are actually the only means of transportation between the different islands. Upon our arrival in Bocas de Toro, we finally met captain Clive in a local restaurant : el Besa del Dragon, only to enjoy a few mores drinks, talking the afternoon through. As expected, our South-African born captain is quite an interesting man. He amazed us with his jaw-dropping stories about the nowadays ruthless pirates, and his 23 yearlong voyages across the world.
