  • Perfect house

    "I stayed at the Villa house for two nights, and me and my family had a great time. The house is very comfortable and well located in Contadora. The bedrooms were very comfortable and kitchen very well equipped. The Golf cart included in the rental was perfect for my family of 4 to get around the island. We were well received and everything went as planned."

  • AWESOME!!

    "The description of this property is spot on!! The apartment was very clean, comfortable, and stocked with all amenities one could need. The location is perfect; centrally located with the beach at the end of the lane and town only a mile away. Sandi is a great Hostess. I loved sitting on the patio admiring the beautiful scenery, while listening to the parrots and monkeys in the jungle behind the unit. I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Bocas Del Toro."

  • 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!"

Panama Travel Tips

Getting to Panama Vacation Rentals

The Tocumen International Airport in Panama City is located not far from the city center. Because of the rapid expansion of the city in recent decades, roads and traffic can be particularly chaotic and you need to allow for additional time to get to and from the airport. Panama City Airport hosts most major North American, South American and European Airlines. There are regular daily scheduled flights that link Panama City with other major cities in the United States and neighboring countries. If you are traveling to a region outside of Panama City such as Bocas Del Toro, you will need to get a domestic connection from the Marcos A. Gelabert Regional Airport. This is the airport that hosts most regional flights to the rest of Panama. In Panama, the best way to get around is by taxi. Car rental is not recommended unless you are traveling in more remote areas.

Panama Travel Attractions

The Panama Canal is a major engineering feat and one of the country’s biggest attractions. You can visit the Miaflores Visitors Center and join a guided tour explaining the history, construction and modern-day operations of the canal. Then while enjoying lunch or a cup of coffee at the restaurant, you can watch the locks operating and see the ships passing through. Half-day and full-day cruises on the canal will take you through a number of locks.

Panama City has a number of interesting landmarks and museums. Most are open throughout the year and provide interesting and unique insights into Panama’s history and culture. Unfortunately, not all museums have both English and Spanish transcriptions on their exhibits so it is sometimes useful to have a Spanish-speaking guide with you. The Old City is known as the Panama-Viejo. This is original site of the first settlement in Panama. The city was once a base for Spanish conquests but was destroyed by fire in 1671 when it came under attack of the famous English pirate Henry Morgan. The historical heart of Panama City is the Casco-Viejo. Here, you can see some colonial architectural masterpieces. Browse the shops and enjoy a cup of coffee at one of the street cafés.

The Bocas Del Toro Archipelago is a group of islands that is a marine paradise. Home to the first nature reserve in Panama, the islands offer a quiet retreat where you can forget all about corporate city life for a while. There are excellent diving and snorkeling on the islands. Many have great beach breaks and are popular surfing spots. Birdwatching is a favorite pastime and you can spend many leisurely hours on the beachfront.

Stylish Comforts at Panama Beach Houses

If you want a truly relaxing vacation then rent one of the beach houses in Panama. Enjoy a quiet rural ambience and have a vacation where you can put your feet up and do whatever you please. Stroll down to the local restaurant for lunch and enjoy a home-cooked seafood meal. In the evening, you can enjoy sundowners on the deck as the sun sets behind you. The homes are either cozy cottages or more spacious homes depending on your rental requirements. Living areas are comfortable and rooms are tastefully furnished.
