Car: Not Necessary

Bocas is known for it's spectacular, natural beauty: beautiful reefs for snorkeling and scuba, jungle island tours for observing, monkeys, sloths, and an array of exotic birdlife in the area. It is most recently famous for fabulous surf spots for surfers.

Jungle tours, boat tours, sail boat tours and local beach excursions can all be arranged with local outfits all based in the center of Bocas town. There is amazing snorkeling and wildlife. Bocas is wonderful for families that are looking for a bit of adventure as well as travelers of all types looking for a unique, fun getaway.

Our island of Isla Carenero has great nature walks, bars and restaurants and and world class surfing with beautiful views of the out islands, the sea and mountains with dolphin watching is an everyday occurrence. There is a white sandy beach right next to the inn perfect for swimming and sunbathing.

We are a 3 minute run from Bocas Main Street so it is convenient to jump in a water taxi if you would like the Bocas night life. Taxis run until 3:00 am when bars close and begin again at 5: 00 am. The inn is just far enough away from Bocas town to feel the relaxation and beauty of the area but minutes to anything one would want.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I have spent most of my life living abroad first in Sweden,in Florida and on board sailboats cruising the Carribbean looking for a good spot to settle. We discovered Panama in 1997 and built a house over the sea on the pretty tropical isle of Isla Carenero, in the Bocas del Toro Islands.The house slowly transformed into an intimate inn for families and couples, alike. There are suites with patios over the sea for all who like sea life it is a thrilling place to stay.. We divide our time between Florida and Bocas del Toro. We have an excellent native management team who manage Acuario in our absence.

Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro Province, Panama:
I have live on the water my whole life wherever I have lived, the sea has never more than a stone's throw away. We built Casa Acuario after arriving in the Bocas islands by boat. We wanted to build something that was a reflection of the island natives' life ,whom we so admired for it's simplicity and the locals connectivity to nature. Casa Acuario serves as a home away from home with all the necessary creature comforts and a communal feel in our open air leisure terrace/ kitchen. We have created a retreat that serves as the perfect base to go and explore all that these unique islands offer, from the vibrant indigenous population to the amazing reefs and beaches to Bocas town with a lively nightlife. Casa Acuario is a relaxing, beachside tropical retreat with amazing water and mountain views, perfect to lay in your hammock and watch the dolphins frolic off the front deck.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Casa Acuario is open and airy and the suites and patios all, look out over the out islands, sea and mountains. We are located on a beautiful small tropical island just across from the Bocas town Main Street. It is 3 minutes away to the amenities of Bocas but ...there is no need to go to Bocas to enjoy as we have a pretty beach for swimming , fine bars and restaurants on the island with great surf spots and nature walks
