    Bocas del Toro Things to Do

    Scattered in the archipelago are wonderful places to snorkel. Most famous are Bocas del Drago, Hospital Point, the coral gardens at Isla Cristobal, Coral Cay (Cayo Crawl) and Cayos Zapatilla. As I'm born an Aquarius I'm crazy when it comes to do with water. I'm not a very good swimmer but I do love to go under waterI love very much nature above and...

    Isla Bastimentos Restaurants

    The two meals I had at this pension over the water were the highlight of my otherwise mixed experience on Isla Bastimentos (see my other tips). Tom and Ina have been running this informal and relaxed establishment for years, and it is obvious that they love what they do. I was only sorry that the rooms were booked out for the dates of my stay....

  • Cave Tour

    Isla Bastimentos Off The Beaten Path

    At Roots restaurant and bar, it is possible to arrange for a tour of a recently discovered bat cave about 45 minutes travel by boat from the island. The route to the cave heads across the bay and then into a winding canal through a mangrove swamp. From the landing point, it's a short walk to the cave itself, but the cave was really less interesting...

  • Red Frog Beach

    Isla Bastimentos Things to Do

    This is a gorgeous cove located on the northeast section of the island. The surf is so rough that access is from the opposite side of the island. The mile or so footpath is an adventure in itself as the deadly red frog lurks within the undergrowth and fallen logs along the way. Secretions from this tiny frog can kill a full sized man. Handling the...

    Changuinola Off The Beaten Path

    For a great side trip, when staying in the Bocas, ride the old United Fruit canel into Chanquiola. This canal was built to carry bananas from Chanquinola to the port of Boca for shipment to world markets. Alot of people take this ferry when visiting the Bocas from Costa Rica.

    Changuinola Things to Do

    Mangroves, flowers, short little trees that I don't know the name of - this is what the environment is like here. It is beautiful, it is odd, it is intriguing. I could be in the jungles and swamps of any part of the world. For the slightest moment of time I forgot I was in Panamá. I was envisioning elephants and lions running around in the grass as...

  • I see the ocean

    Changuinola Things to Do

    After quite some time cruising around the murky brown rivers surrounded by mangrove trees and fishermen, suddenly the scenery will disappear. The water becomes choppy and the boat begins to fly all over the place. This is because you have finally reached the Caribbean Sea. The water becomes clearer and salty. The horizon is in plain sight. You know...

  • Getting there and around

    Almirante Transportation

    The best way to get there is overland. You can take a bus from Costa Rica's Coarribean coastal road or from David, Panama. Either way, once you get there, take a boat towards Bocas del Torro to see the photogenical houses I was telling you about.

    Isla Colón Restaurants

    My friend and I happened to be lucky enough to stay on the same property as the new location of El Pecado, and boy did we take advantage of this! The restaurant is owned by a couple, Stephane and Olga, who became fast friends of ours, as did the waiter, Felix. We stayed here for two weeks, so we did venture out for food often but agreed that...
