Recent Bocas del Toro reviews

  • Great family trip

    "Our family just returned from Panama, and stayed at this rental for 1 week. (2 adults, 3 kids ages 14, 12, and 9) The house was overall better than we expected, with even more space than we needed. Everything you need is there, and the A.C. in the house works great on the hotter days. The ocean view deck was a big highlight. Relaxing in the hammocks, enjoying the incredible views was hard to beat. Also, the management was extremely helpful and professional at arrival, and when we had occasional questions. The house is in a great spot, as it is close enough to town, but far enough away to be much more relaxed than places in town. Getting around in Bocas del Toro was different than we expected, so renting a golf cart is highly recommended. Taxis are everywhere, so that's an option too, as well as renting a bicycle. There is also a nice restaurant/bar(Paki Point) 100 yards down the road that serves good food and drinks. We visited during the rainy season, but were pleasantly surprised it only rained "bad" for 2 of our 12 days. Most nights were rainy, but that was not a problem at all. The thunder and lightning storms some evenings were exciting too. The clouds were also a bit of a bonus, as they help keep the heat down some. We didn't get to see the Monkeys, as they were hiding out from the rain mostly, but we did get to hear them a few times. If you enjoy the rainforest while being nearly ocean front, and outside of the heart of town, you will enjoy this rental. Be sure to rent ATV's from Flying Pirates, a really fun way to explore the area. We hope to return soon ! Family From California"

  • Fantastic Experience

    "One of our favorite trips ever. Fell in love with Bocas and Bocas Villas was a perfect place to enjoy it from. Philip and Brown were awesome. Quiet, beautiful, peaceful, amazing stand-up paddleboarding, great snorkling, yet close to town and beach and surf. We can't wait to come back."

  • Wonderful house on an amazing island!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our four nights at Casa Mono. It was even better than the pictures show! The lush jungle setting of the house was beautiful and the layout of the house unique and perfect for our group of 4 adults and 2 kids. We loved feeling as though we were outdoors with the screened walls on three sides, but we also felt very safe. The house was clean and bug free. The beds and pillows were comfortable with nice linens, and there were plenty of plush bath towels provided. All of the bedrooms had floor fans as well as ceiling fans, so everyone slept comfortably. Having a washer and dryer along with soap and dryer sheets available was very handy. The kitchen was adequately equipped for making meals, which we did each evening. The hammocks scattered throughout the decks provided plenty of opportunities for relaxing while listening to the surf close by. It was nice to be away from town, but yet just a quick taxi ride away. A short walk took us to a tidal pool for swimming (bring water shoes). We also walked up to Paki Point, a fun, casual bar where you can watch the surfers. We met Ron, the rental manager, and Carlos, the home owner, both very nice guys. They were very helpful with tips on good taxi drivers, guides and places to go. William (taxi driver) and Roberto (boat guide) treated us right! An added bonus was a troop of monkeys that came to visit us on our last evening and morning. They gave us a good show right outside of the house. I wish we could have stayed longer at Casa Mono!"

  • Excellce By Nature

    "Had the best time of my life in 2014, with family members. All services were provided without hiccups. The Owner's commitments were fully provided better than he stated. He (Albert) makes sure that everything is as he describes in his memorandum of sales. Great service provided by his Captain, Gregorio. Very humble person and ready to meet you expectations. Great place to be....highly recommended!! TIPS: Vacationers should be prepared in advanced to have everything ready for this type of getaway due to airliners and airport hiccups."

Bocas del Toro Travel Tips

Natural Beauty at Bocas del Toro Vacation Homes

Bocas del Toro is a small archipelago of islands in Panama in Central America. It was the country’s first national park. Because of conservation efforts, it has remained a pristine haven of natural resources. Bird and turtle sanctuaries are numerous and visitors can enjoy nature at its best. Many divers come to explore the underwater world and snorkelers can view the reefs from the surface. There are many trails that are open for visitors to explore and travelers who enjoy trekking can explore a wide range of landscapes. It’s a destination where a more leisurely pace prevails and you can take some time to enjoy the local culture and natural attractions.

Bocas del Toro Travel Attractions

In Bocas del Toro, you are really spoiled for choice. Unless you are staying for an extended period, you will really be hard-pressed to explore all of the attractions the area has to offer. Both the land and sea offer many opportunities for exploration.

The scuba diving is excellent and there are several reputable dive schools in the area that operate daily charters. Snorkeling excursions and leisurely sightseeing cruises can also be easily arranged. For a different kind of snorkeling experience, join an excursion to the mangroves. Here in the crystal clear waters, you can see the sponges, starfish, fire corals and crabs that make this area their home. Surfers’ favorite spots are the waves off the Bastimentos and Colon Islands, and Carenero Quay. While the waves are good, it’s not a place for novice surfers. Many of the waves break close to the beach or dump on coral reefs, and you need to have the ability to break away before you get too close to either.

There are many marked trails for hiking on the different islands and some local tour operators will provide a guiding service to take you around. Some of the longer trails are open for mountain biking and bikes can be hired relatively inexpensively. Two of the more well known trails are the Red Frog Trail and the Sloth Trail.

The Bocas del Toro town is a place with a rich history. Many beautiful old buildings tell their own tales of industries and developments over the ages. Many of the old colonial buildings are being lovingly restored to their former glory, making strolling down the streets a wonderful experience.

Leisurely Days at Bocas del Toro Vacation Houses

Bocas del Toro is the type of destination that you visit to escape hectic your busy life for a while. The beautiful natural surroundings and wealth of outdoor activities will quickly rejuvenate your spirits. Many of the vacation homes are located on the beachfront with sweeping views over the ocean. Enjoy breakfast out on the deck and hear the birds in the trees overhead. Most rental homes are spacious and comfortably furnished. Many are characterized by large windows, open decks and surrounded by lush tropical gardens. Staying here you can enjoy your own private piece of paradise.

Getting to Bocas del Toro

For international travelers, you will need to route via the international airport in Panama City. From there, you can get a connection with one of the domestic airlines into Bocas del Toro. There are regularly scheduled flights but because Bocas is a popular tourist destination, they are often quite fully booked. It’s therefore essential to make your reservation together with your international flight and reconfirm your flight details again prior to your departure. Upon arrival in Bocas del Toro, you can get a marine taxi out to the islands. There are two taxi companies that operate regularly scheduled departures throughout the day.
