September 13, 2017

Vacation is the best time to unwind and take a break from the normal day-to-day stresses. It is important to get out of your normal element to give you some time to recharge. One of the most important ways to do this is to disconnect and actually relax! While it might sound easy, you may also find yourself checking work emails, making calls, responding to texts, etc. Learn more about tips for disconnecting during your travels, best places to relax, and choosing relaxing Bocas del Toro hotels to stay in during your travels.

Tips for Disconnecting

In the Daily Infographic’s 15 terrifying statistics on your cellphone addiction, the average person checks their mobile device up to 110 times per day. They also state that 50 percent of people don’t feel comfortable leaving their house without their smartphone and 44 percent check emails for work each day while on vacation. That’s not a vacation! To help you disconnect, take it slow. Start using your smartphone or tablet less and less in the days leading up to your trip. Next, make sure your coworkers know you will be out and get assignments done ahead of time. Find someone to be your backup and include them in your out-of-office email, noting that you will not be responding to email. And don’t!

Best Places to Relax in Bocas del Toro

The beach is one of the most relaxing places to go to refresh. In Bocas del Toro, there are so many crystal-clear shorelines to grab a chair, umbrella and cool drink to just listen to the waves hit the shore. Make sure you take time to visit Playa Istmito that is known for its super clear waters. There is also Playa La Y-Griega that is a small beach that many go to for relaxing and unwinding. It also has smaller waves for those looking to just walk around in the water without intense waves. You can also look into water-side yoga sessions. They are a great way to start and end your day.
