countdown to panama: where to stay

la loma and palmar tent lodge found via . thanks for sharing your recommendations!

 back in november, our friend, andi, threw her boyfriend a 007 party to celebrate his turning 30. 
we all received the details of our mission - to "infiltrate and surprise the target" and came dressed to the nines as bond girls, villains, and a few variations of the spy himself. 
complete with a hired bartender mixing up classic cocktails, the party was an absolute hit!

now that february has arrived, we're officially in countdown mode. counting down to the new york / new jersey state bar exams, which shane will be taking at the end of the month. and counting down to a post-bar vacation. after some serious recommendations from friends, we've decided on panama for our retreat. we're planning to spend the first part of the trip in the remote islands of bocas del toro and the second part in the cosmopolitan capital, panama city.

we've started a "wish you were here - panama edition" pinterest board, and will be organizing our inspiration here, as well - in four posts to follow. if you've got any recommendations - let us know!


we could not recommend this show more. our whole group really got into it - dressing and playing the part - and it was so worth it. this made for a totally unique evening and great time with friends.
