  • Best Vacay EVER!!!

    "Bocas is the perfect place for a getaway! The town is vibrant and fun and has so many great restuarants and bars to choose from! We travelled there for 10 nights for our 5 year anniversary with another couple of our best friends. The house is in the perfect location - walking distance to absolutely everything in Bocas town! There is laundry just a couple doors down as well as bike rental places pretty much everywhere! And if you want to boat taxi somewhere they will pick you up and drop you off right in front of the house on the dock! Hot showers, comfortable beds, hot weather and a great price/night make this the ideal house to rent in Bocas! The house has absolutely everything you could possibly need and if there is something that you can't find in the house you can walk to the store and buy it! Booze was cheap! $4.50 for a six pack of beer or $22 for a 66oz of Bacardi Rum! Obviously we celebrated a little bit! We swam alot - dove off the platform and hung out in hammocks up there! The water is very calm and deep in front of the house - perfect for floating in or a quick dip when it's too hot! The outdoor shower was great to wash the salt off too! Daniel who is the chef at Pukalani hostel (amazingly beautiful hostel biking distance from the house) picked us up at the airport and took very good care of us at the house the entire time - anything we needed he helped us with! We also highly recommend that you eat at Pukalani if you can! The food we ate there was some of the best we had in all of Panama! If your looking for a place to stay in Bocas this is it! The pictures on VRBO totally don't do the house justice! We absolutely loved it here and would not hesitate for a second to book this house in Bocas again!"

  • Excellent trip

    "We returned from the island just a week ago but we would like to go back again. The trip was more than we had expected. It was the most enjoyable experience we have ever had. Everything was just heavenly – the marvelous nature, mystifying sunrise and sunset, the silver sea, the lovely and clean casita and which is more important the hospitable and kind people. We tried delicious and testy dishes, fresh seafood. The owner Dragan is kind, humorous person who is pleasant to deal with. He is very attentive but never of course intrusive. He took care to provide people with all the necessities. Dragan met us on time, took us to Indian villagesas well as to the nearest islands and was always willing to make our time even more enjoyable. DRAGAN, WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK YOU WHOLEHEARTEDLY FOR EVERYTHING!!! Without any hesitation we highly recommend the Caribbean Blue house for the people who are seeking a place to escape from daily life and live unforgettable and unbelievable experience."

  • EXCELLENT!

    "This was my first trip not only to Bocas, but to Panama. I travel to Costa Rica often and wanted to see something new. I was hesitant in my search for a hotel or house because I didn't know what to expect and finally booked Bills place. My friend and I were pleasantly surprised just how hospitable Bill was when picking us up at the airport and taking us to a good sized grocery to get supplies. I did all the planning, and my friend was very impressed the minute we stepped for in our condo. Everything we could have possibly needed was there, including a state of the art and fully equipped kitchen, spacious dining area and living room and very large washer and dryer. There was plenty of room for privacy, as my friend and I love our alone time with two ensuite bedrooms with very spacious bathrooms and a separate guest bathroom in the hallway. We really enjoyed our mornings and evening on the porch where we listened to music and drank local beers. Our condo was very clean, neat and had all of the amenities listed. Bill was super helpful with recommendations where to go and swayed us away from some common touristy things like boat tours which I appreciated as I like to live like a local when vacationing. I would highly recommend Burn Brae Plantation to any family member and friends. It was a 5 minutes taxi ride into the hustle and bustle of Town and far enough away to really feel like you are on holiday! I will definitely return!!!"

  • 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!"

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.

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.
