There is far more to the Pacific Ocean than the Islands of Hawaii and Tahiti. Instead of going straight on after going through the Panama Canal turn left, like the Bishop of Panama did back in 1535 when he found these islands by accident on a trip to Peru.

The North Shore is totally different, less developed, more original, more character and far more laid back. It looks and feels more Polynesian and is full of trendy coffee shops full of surfers waiting for the right conditions, or it has big waves and they are out surfing. The area was a retreat for Hawaiian royalty in the 1800s...
