One of things I love most about living in Panama.
Something quite endearing about this place is how gracefully families visiting have abandoned their connection to the world when staying with us. Obviously, it's a choice because we do have internet but it's so slow that most people just don't have the patience.
But, wait for it... get past the frustration, decompress, and then ease into a different pace. Once that moment settles in, there's a deep feeling of relaxation and calmness that the body craves and needs. What's even better is when the whole family gets into the rhythm. The phones get left in the room, the games come out and the laughter begins.
Can you remember the last time you played a game with your family? If you do, you likely remember more than anything the hilarious stories that were told, the banter, and the memories. If you don't we'd like to invite you to come and give it a try. We won't disappoint you, I promise.
I was recently reading a story on the Patagonia website called the "The Art of Letting Go." This is what inspired me to write about the disconnection our guests so commonly reflect upon their positive experience with us here in Morrillo.
Almost every single one of our guests comments on the positivity of being forced to disconnect so while it's hard for remote workers (we have options), we know higher speed options will soon be here. Then we make the decision; do we connect or not? What do you think? As always, we love hearing from you and hope to see you soon.
