Why Angie Cottrell chose Panama

We built this property on one of the nicest beaches in Bocas for the enjoyment of our guests. This property was finished and opened in late December of 2011.

What makes this villa unique

This is one of the only beachfront properties in all the archipelago of islands in Bocas! You are literally 20 steps from the Caribbean Sea on a soft sand beach. You can enjoy a swim in the warm waters of the sea and then return to take a dip in the refreshing waters of the pool! We are close to town for convenience yet far enough away for relaxation!

Amazing place to stay to explore Bocas del Toro!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Las Casitas with our two boys and the setup was perfect. The beach front location was amazing, as well as the private pool in the middle. Having the two separate casitas within a gated area allowed us to have the kids close by while having our own private accommodations at the same time. Steve, Angie and family are great hosts and provide the right balance of being available while giving their guests privacy at the same time. We did the one day private boat tour with Wes and the boys loved exploring the islands, seeing sloths and other creatures and checking out some of the local snorkeling spots. We plan to return one day soon and would love to stay here again!

Owner's Response: Las Casitas is the perfect set up for families! We are so happy you found us and were able to enjoy the perfect lay out and location! A private boat tour by Wes makes the stay the BEST! We also very much enjoyed your wonderful little family, look forward to having you back here!

Villa Paraiso

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a week at Villa Paraiso. It was heavenly!

The Villa was very comfortable The air conditioning worked great! The view was spectacular. We did two boat trips with Wes that were fantastic. We saw so many sloths and starfish! He knows how to avoid the crowds to make your trip special. The Cotrell family made you feel so welcome. We will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed everything! The great adventures with Wes, the spa day massage at the Villa , the private pool, beach, and of course the AIR CONDITIONING! Many people who come to Bocas think that a back to nature experience in an opened air accommodation would be a great experience, but being in the JUNGLE ON THE EQUATOR you need A/C!! Villa Paraiso has all that and more!

Clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay at Villa Paraiso. While having a private pool and the beach right out front are definitely the highlights of this property, the attention to detail of the owners makes it perfect. The apartment was clean and well equipped with everything that we needed during our stay. Having a fully equipped kitchen and BBQ area were very convenient, as well as having the use of bicycles to get around. The owners Steve and Angie were very helpful and accommodating. Thanks for a wonderful and relaxing vacation!

Perfect location on beach with a private salt water pool

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at Villa Paraiso with our 4 children and loved everything about the beautiful property. Just steps to the beach and pool our children and us as parents were fully entertained without having to make daily plans. We could rest at Villa or decide to go out and explore. Either way was perfect.

The set up encourages being outdoors swimming, kayaking, reading or riding with Wes, who will tailor the trip and share ideas, on the boat to visit other islands, snorkel and eat fabulous food at any of the islands beach restaurants. We also had nightly movie night watching lots of our old favorites.

Town was a quick, inexpensive cab ride away to market for groceries, surf shop and more amazing restaurants. A mile the other direction is an outdoor restaurant/bar, hammocks, pool, beach which shows nightly movies. This was a great place to change things up for an afternoon or evening, eat while children swam and were fully entertained eating and playing.

We had a wonderful experience and highly recommend for adults traveling and families with children. Either way Villa Paraiso is a perfect location. far enough away from town but close enough to easily get to the shops, take a water taxi to another island.

We had an amazing experience.

Thank you Cottrell Family!

We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you Judge family! We all enjoyed having your family here too! There is nothing better to us than having guests that not only thoroughly enjoy the beauty of the islands, but everything that Villa Paraiso offers. We all really miss you, including Schatzi who still is looking for the kids.

This property is just wonderful. The pool and the beach are great so is the location. Just a quick taxi ride into town and just far enough away for a relaxing vacation. The owners are great and on site for all your needs as far as what to do and who to contact for tours and etc.I personally think that this place is the best place to stay while here in Bocas Del Toro.

Owner's Response: You are not alone in coming to the conclusion that Las Casitas of Villa Paraiso is the best in all the islands of Bocas, because it truly is! So for other readers take this guests advice and don't go anywhere else! This guest booked the last week of their vacation in another rental, they stayed 1 night there and came back to spend the rest of their time at Villa Paraiso!

Right here at the Villa you will be able to relax and swim in the pool, walk the beach, or float in the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea. Rest and read a number of different house novels, or choose a movie from our selection, and watch them on the LCD flat screen TV. You can take the bikes and go for a ride out to Bluff Beach to walk the wide 3 mile stretch of orange sand beach and look for shells, along the way eat lunch at Paki's Place or at Playa Bluff Restaurant. Try riding horses along the beach and enjoy the scenery. You can visit Starfish Beach and see hundreds of starfish in the crystal clear waters, and then have lunch at the beach restaurant. Along the way to starfish beach you can see the caves, where church services are held. There are also several different boat tours available. See the dolphins feeding in Dolphins bay or take the boogie boards and ride the waves at beautiful Red Frog Beach, you can visit the 2 white sand, palm tree ringed, Zapatilla Islands at the National Marine Park, while there you can take the boardwalk through the jungle and see the wildlife in the inner island. You can take another tour to the Sal Creek Indian Village, as you wind down the mangrove covered creek to enter the village and then check out the local culture. There are also butterfly gardens, botanical gardens, and chocolate farm tours. All this is just a sampling of what there is to see and do! This archipelago of hundreds of islands offers many different experiences. Then you come back in the evening to relax at one of the most exquisite places on the island!
