The marker on the map is off.. Our property is an hour's drive north of the town of Bocas del Toro on the Isla Colon. The drive is through the beautiful jungle passing occasional local indigenous towns. The drive itself is like a jungle tour. The north side of the island is a gem in this spectacular archipelago. We are exposed to the open Caribbean with the stunning Bird Island in the view. Activities include relaxing, sea kayaking, bird watching, jungle hiking, surfing, swimming, eating fresh fruits off the property. It is a refreshing escape from town that can get hot and buggy. We seem to constantly have a breeze and are relieved to return to this part of the island after visiting town.
