    PALM TREES & COCONUTS

    WELCOME TO OUR NEW BLOG, PALM TREES & COCONUTS.

    WE LOVE #ADVENTURE AND #TRAVEL, #EXPLORING HIDDEN PARADISES & MEETING NEW PEOPLE. THE CEACEA SWIMWEAR TEAM HAVE BEEN TRAVELING TO EXOTIC LOCATIONS, IMMERSING THEMSELVES IN NEW CULTURES & TESTING THE CEACEA SWIMWEAR TO THE LIMIT!

    WHERE WILL YOU FIND US? SOMEWHERE WHERE THERE'S PALM TREES & COCONUTS :)

    WE CANT WAIT TO SHARE OUR EXPERIENCES WITH YOU.....

    First stop....The Pacific Coast of #Panama.

    From Panama City it was a 8 hour drive to the West of the country to a very small town called Santa Catalina. We were on the hunt for some lesser known surf spots than the hugely popular region of Bocas Del Toro on the East coast. We had been told of a world class wave which was also next to a world class dive location and we were excited to see if it lived up to the hype!

    The main wave in Santa Catalina is called La Punta and it turns out its ranked in the top 60 waves in the world. It is also a right hand reef break, and for us regular footers that was a little gem. The surf guide was correct, the wave was incredible. The paddle out starts at the wall with graffiti on and can be a little tricky at first as you have to know where the rocks are to avoid them, but once you have done it a few times it's fine.

    When the big swells came into town, so did the pro surfers and the cameras. The waves can be huge and produced double over head stand up barrels. On those days I was out the water, watching on from one of the incredible viewing platforms on the cliff. There was some incredible surfers out there and the wave can get busy as everyone takes off from a very small take off area. On regular days the waves would be head high - head and a half and it was a great wave to get more confident on bigger waves.

    Being a reef break the wave always broke in the same spot so you could sit on the shoulder of the wave and avoid getting them on the head all the time. You can only surf this wave three hours either side of high tide as the water gets too low and the rocks come out, which is why it can get busy at times.

    Santa catalina also has a beach break, further down the road with many surf schools on it. Its a fun and safe place to learn with no rock and the potential to get a pretty long wave once you have learnt how to stand up.

    With plenty of small islands surrounding Santa Catalina you can pay a fisherman to take you on a boat trip to explore some idilic deserted beaches and if you get lucky you can find a little wave as well. We spent the day amongst the palm trees drinking fresh coconut juice and enjoying the peaceful paradise.

    We ended up spending six weeks in Santa Catalina and actually volunteered in a hotel there, so we could spend a lot of time surfing and learning Spanish with the hotel staff. We found this job through #workaway.

    If the swell isn’t working then there are still things to do! Only an hours boat ride away is the untouched marine park of Coiba island. It's definitely worth getting out there, although on the little local wooden boats it can sometimes be a bit of a bumpy ride. It's home to some of the best diving in the world and even snorkeling you feel like you are in an aquarium. Our fellow volunteer did his open water diving course in Santa Catalina. After only six dives, he had already seen turtles, reef sharks, manta rays and whale sharks!

    A guest in the hotel commented that he had been diving for 15 years and not been lucky enough to see that! You also get treated to seeing dolphins and humpback whales on the boat ride out there. Its a truly magical place.

    The population of the town is only a couple of 1000 people and with limited internet it felt like a time warp where the backpacker/traveler infrastructure had yet to hit. I hope it stays that way as it adds to the charm of the town.

    There are plenty of accommodation options from backpacker hostels to nicer bungalows. There's one local store in town and a vegetable truck that comes through a couple of times a week. You can also buy fresh fish and lobster on the beach as the fishermen come in. So far there are no ATMs so it's good to come prepared with cash and food before you get here. The next main town is 3 hours away on the bus!

    If you are a #digitalnomad, the internet might not be great but the office view is fantastic :)

    After a great time getting to know the villagers of #SantaCatalina it was time to move on. We had met lots of other surfers in Santa Catalina that had told us #PlayaVenoa was worth a visit. Therefore we packed up and got ready for our next PALM TREES & COCONUTS location.

    Have you been to Santa Catalina? What were you thoughts? Tips?

    PALM TREES & COCONUTS. VENTURING INTO PLAYA VENOA.

    After our extended stay in Santa Catalina, plenty of other surfers had told us about a place called Playa Venoa down the coast was worth a look. We had the time and it was in the right direction for us, so we stopped in..............and we weren't disappointed,

    Playa Venao is on the Azuero Peninsula’s and is said to be the best surfing in this area. It's a pretty little cove shaped bay with a beach break. Bigger and dumpier waves are to one end of the cove and as you go down the beach they get smaller.

    I stuck to the middle of the bay and towards the end of the week we had a great swell, little wind and perfect clean fun waves. With waves breaking in both directions, that are perfect for every skill level, it was the most fun I've had on a beach break!

    We also got very lucky with the conditions and the line up wasn’t crowded. There was a nice mix of locals and tourists who were all very friendly out in the line up. We had some beautiful sunset surf session here. At present, this area is relatively undeveloped, but it is beginning to see a boom of projects as the word gets out about its laid-back vibe and awesome surf.

    The town itself isn’t big with just a handful of places to eat. There's also yoga on the beach at one of the hostels if you fancy that.Other activities like horse riding, hikes and trips to nearby beaches are also on offer.

    What CEACEA SWIMWEAR items we wore:

    The capsule wardrobe in IRIDESCENT and EMERALD,

    Consisting of The ACIONNA bralette and The BELISAMA surf & yoga leggings, wear for surfing or your sunset yoga sessions. On hotter days we wore The ASTERIA crop for some sun protection and The EOS reversible bottoms.

    The CEACEA capsule wardrobe

    The CEACEA capsule wardrobe

    You may be aware that one of the reasons CEACEA SWIMWEAR was created was due to myself (Caroline) and co-creator Chloe's frustrations with having to take so much 'active' gear away on weekend trips or surf trips to Bali. You never knew what the weather might be like or what activities you might end up doing. Therefore we needed to take activewear and swimwear for all possibilities!

    After getting 'stung' on excess baggage by our budget airline on the way to Bali one time, we decided that when we created our range we would make it a capsule wardrobe. A wardrobe whereby you would need fewer items but those pieces would be functional across all ranges of activities, land AND sea. 

    Well ladies, that is exactly what we have created. The CEACEA SWIMWEAR capsule wardrobe. We have designed THE GODDESS range with this in mind. You are able to buy three items and have four different outfits, each one designed for different activities. You get four different looks and endless activities you can do in them. Our capsule combinations include the ASTERIA crop top for your high impact activities, matched with the reversible EOS briefs. Flip the briefs around for look number two or pair with the ACIONNA bralette if you are doing lighter exercise.

     

       

    If you prefer to have leggings that you can use for yoga/pilates and water sports, choose the BELISAMA leggings combo paired with the ACIONNA bralette. Chuck in the reversible EOS brief to give you that active bikini. This capsule combination gives you four different land to sea options.

    Surfing through Central America - Bocas del Toro. Panama.

    Surfing through Central America - Bocas del Toro. Panama.

    I (Caz) am lucky enough to be spending the best part of the year traveling through Central and South America. This is to spread the CEACEA love but to also hit the best surf spots along the way too.

    I have recently been in Bocas Del Toro and what I found was a real treat.

                               

    The beauty of Bocas del Toro is that there are a number of breaks you can choose from. Pretty much all breaks are accessible by boat only. It is pretty fun to jump on a little wooden boat, nip over to the other island, jump in and just go for it! Do remember to agree a time with the Captain to come back and collect you!

    December to March is the main surf season, however I was there in August and I got very lucky with waves everyday. Im told this isn't the norm however,

    Here's the low down on which waves to hit.

    Main breaks of Bocas del Toro;

    Careneros The point - Intermediate waves apart from the odd day when a huge swell comes into town. Left hand point break, breaking over coral reef. Good when the wind is light to moderate, cross or offshore. You can see when a set is coming through and can hang on the corner if its looking too big. If it is big just sit a bit wider. A good wave to improve your skills as an intermediate rider. Not crowded on the off season. $3 boat ride to get to,

    Careneros Old Mans - Beginner wave, nice and friendly to take your long board and foamie. On bigger days you can use a short board here too. An 'A frame' wave but the left is longer than the right. Can walk up Careneros island and paddle out or get a $2 boat ride.

    Paunch - Intermediate to Advance wave. A tricky paddle out over reef but once your out its deep enough. It's on the way to bluffs beach on Isla Colon, you can hire a bike and cycle there (a bit tricky holding your board), drive or get a boat round. An 'A frame' but the left is better than the right. It can be a hollow wave on a bigger swell.

     

    Wizard Beach - Beach break. You can get a boat to Bastimentos Island Old Bank and walk 15 minutes through the island to Wizard beach. A nice beach but average waves. It's probably better during peak wave season.

    Other waves in the area that we didn't go to;

    SilverBacks, Long beach, Bluff beach

    In summary the main pros and cons are;

     

    Pros;

    Warm water

    Beautiful scenery and tropical islands to look at while you surf

    A really friendly crowd

    Lots of other chicas shredding out there

    Clean water

    Fun boat access

    Bocas town - lots of accommodation, restaurants and bars

     

    Cons;

    Boat access only so you have to pay to surf

    Over coral reef so wear booties if you are worried

    Bocas town - its not a quiet surf destination, it's fully on the 'beaten track'

     

    Other cool spots to hit when the surf is flat is Red frog beach to spot the....Red frogs. Also Playa Estrella or star fish beach is a a pretty place for a day trip.

     

    Enjoy :)
