2017 has been about accomplishing age-old dreams and revisiting the places that feel like home. I finally made the move to my sun-drenched Panamanian paradise, a country with more surfboards than cars (probably). While on this side of the world, I am making it my mission to escape into the wild blue yonder, getting a taste of the gorgeous beaches that line South America’s coasts. I have some pretty ambitious plans. I may sip on Caipirinhas at Jericoacoara or seek refuge under a palm tree on Ilha Grande. I could also lay claim to seeing “the best beach in the world” at Fernando de Noronha. I might also remain blissfully stuck in Panama, who knows. Check in with me in December 2018. If you’re thinking of beaching in South America, here are a few sandy ideas to wet your appetite, straight out of my bucket list.
