Harvesting Bananas

Tranquilo Bay is located in banana country.  Bocas del Toro, Panama has an interesting history tied to banana plantations and all that went and now goes along with them.

My dad sent me a link to this video done by Dole in Costa Rica.  He wanted me to show it to our children.  After watching it, I thought you might want to check it out, too.

It is a great explanation of how your banana leaves Central America and gets to you wherever you live in the world.  Bananas on the Caribbean side of Panama tend to be sent to Europe whereas many of the bananas in Costa Rica go to the North America.  Chiquita Brands processes the bananas in Bocas del Toro and most of Panama.
