"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 !
