Bocas del Toro is a group of Caribbean islands near the border with Costa Rica. The water is clear and warm and perfect for snorkelling. You'll find local bars with a relaxed vibe and pastel coloured wooden houses on stilts. Go for a walk along the beach, spend some time snorkelling, take a boat trip to dolphin bay or rent a mountain bike and ride inland through mangrove forests, creeks and rivers.

Arrival in Bocas del Toro

When you arrive in Almirante you will be transferred by speed boat straight to your the main island of Isla Colon. On arrival you’ll make your own way, just down the road to your cosy hotel near the coast; a perfect base to relax, swim and explore the islands. Explore the colourful streets, browse souvenir shops or sit back and watch village life unfold with a Panamanian beer in hand. There are plenty of restaurants serving local cuisine but you’ll also find European and Asian options too.

Arrival in Bocas del Toro

Free time

Much like the UK, in the tropics, your daily activities are very much determined by the weather! If it’s calm, you can book a boat trip to one of the deserted sister islands of Bocas. Keep an eye out for dolphins playing in the waves from the boat, especially near Dolphin Bay. If the captain spots anything, he’ll sail in circles, making extra waves for the dolphins to splash around in.

Cooking in a Caribbean Home

This evening you’ll learn to cook just like a Bocas local! You’ll be picked up from your hotel by taxi for the short ride to the home of a local Bocas family. Together with the family you’ll prepare a local Panamanian Caribbean dinner. You’ll most likely notice that coconut and seafood feature quite heavily in the local dishes; a delicious combination of West Indian, Caribbean and Spanish influences.

Free Time & Departure

Today you can visit Red Frog Beach. Here you’ll find tiny red frogs who’ll happily sit in your hand whilst you take in their beautiful colour. Back in the village, take some time to wander through the streets then sit on a bench, grab a tropical cocktail and watch the Bocas life pass you by.

On the morning of day 4 this trip comes to an end and you can continue your adventure.
