  • Perfect Bocas Stay

    "I can honestly say I have never before written an online review, though I'm extremely reliant on them when traveling and felt it was my duty to write about this vacation home since it was so, so good. We stayed at Tera's in Bocas from 12/29-1/23. I had never been to Bocas del Toro before and was unsure if I had chosen the right location. The house is situated 4.5 miles from town. To get to and from town, you use the house phone (you purchase minutes in town) to call a cab. We used the driver Miguel for everything - Javier will set you up with him. We generally went to town every day and the fare is $2 per person per trip. From town, we'd spend our days taking boat taxis to explore other islands or dine at one of the many bars/restos there. Our favorite was Ultimo Refugio. The other saving grace was the gourmet supermarket (I'm blanking on the name now) but it's also at the end of town. North of the house is the finest beach on Colon, Bluff Beach. We were in Panama for surf and would head to Bluff nearly everyday. The ride to Bluff is steep ($20/$30) but worth it. There are two great restaurants there and it's beautiful. The only food/bev options within biking/walking distance to the house is a wood fire pizza spot (only open at night) and a great resto called Paki Point on the beach over looking the surf spots Tiger Tails and Ponch. I would not have traded the location of the house for anything. It was mid way between everywhere we wanted to be. We absolutely loved it. The house itself is extremely well maintained. The AC is good and cold, the house was extremely clean and water worked great. Even the laundry was modern and wonderful. The house was equipped with all the major things I'm typically concerned with such as a coffee machine, bottled water for drinking and new/lovely beach and bath towels. Javier the caretaker is awesome. He sorted us out with just about anything we needed. I used his services twice weekly to tidy the house and he did an excellent job. He's really sweet and I found him to be very trustworthy. Overall, a fantastic stay in Bocas. We absolutely loved it and will be back!"

  • Great Place to Stay!

    "I think Bocas Condos is the best place I have stayed in Bocas. I have been in Bocas since 2004 and Bocas Condos is by far the safest, cleanest, best appointed place I know. The owner was absolutely delightful and efficient. Great communication and service. The condo itself is very well maintained, extremely comfortable. It is bright and cheery and nicely decorated. Plenty of closet, storage space. Nice bathroom and kitchen. Extremely comfy sofa bed and lounge chair. Great for short stay and long term stays. Location can't be beat. Thoroughly enjoyed it!"

  • A taste of paradise!

    "Casa Acuario not only met our expectations, but greatly exceeded them. Our suite was located on the upper floor, with a large deck that provided a gorgeous view of the Caribbean waters, nearby Bocas Town, and gave us many spectacular sunsets. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts in the open air dining area. Our breakfasts were prepared by Elia and Edgar, the wonderful team who cared for us, and kept the facilities clean and well maintained throughout our 18 day stay. We regularly took a water taxi from our dock to town. For only $1.00, a water taxi would pick us up and deliver us to Bocas within 2 minutes. Water taxis pass by regularly so it was never a long wait.. Bocas has many very good, reasonably priced restaurants, a large choice of land and water tours, and many opportunities for surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. We highly recommend Casa Acuario as a place to get a taste of paradise. We did, and we loved it! Jim and Laurie Canada"

  • This is the place you want to rent if you are going to Bocas.

    "I just returned from a week long stay at Vista Azul lodge. I travelled there with my wife, five children (21 to 18 months), and in-laws. The house was exactly as advertised on the website and the beach view from the house was spectacular. Peter Kent answered emails promptly and made the rental process very efficient. I was treated with some celebrity once the local boat taxi drivers discovered I was staying at "Señor Kent's Casa" We went scuba diving with La Buga Dive shop. Tony was our dive master and did a great job. The food there was delicious. We took a catamaran ride with Marcelle at Bocas Sailing. Good trip but rain all day. Most fun activity was an ATV ride with Flying Pirates up the north east coast of Isla Colon. Great fun. The proprietor the I believe is Steve who may actually be a real pirate. Every day brought head high waves 1000 yards from the front door step My 21 yo daughter and 18 yo son said it was the best trip ever and plan to return. My 14 yo daughter and mother in law were a little taken aback by the geckos. No regrets here."
