The simple and informal Hotel Bocas Town is on the waterfront, about five minutes' drive from the airstrip and a short walk from the island's restaurants, bars and shops. Like many of the buildings in Bocas del Toro, it is constructed from wood and sits right on the water, offering lovely views and the sounds of the ocean to soothe you to sleep at night. Rooms are bright and cheerful and have air-con and private bathrooms. The terrace is built right over the water, with an informal bar ideal for sundowners or a meal with a stunning ocean view.

What our clients say

  • Top experiences in Panama - going through the canal and exploring Panama City and surrounding area. I was surprised to find that Panama is not just the Canal Zone!


  • "Most memorable was watching mother and baby two-toed sloths from bedroom window at Canopy Tower. Early morning on the roof of Canopy Tower listening to howler monkeys as the sun rises over the forest.”

    NW, Kidlington
  • We enjoyed all locations which were very diverse and equally memorable. 

    IB, Chesterfield
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Too hard to choose one. Panama Canal Transit was a lifelong ambition.

    NA, London
  • Each part of my trip had a special moment. I loved both the new and old parts of Panama city, but my highlight there was seeing sloths while walking up Cerro Ancon. In Bocas del Toro it was being the only person there on a stunning beach. The best moment though has to be staying at the Canopy Tower and experiencing the wildlife. I'll never forget the sound of the Howler monkeys. 

    TF, Wakefield
  • "Bocas del Toro was great fun and frivolous and a great journey there by boat."

Our expert's view

Kathryn backpacked across Argentina, Chile, Bolivia and Peru before joining us. She has a degree in Philosophy and French and is a keen netball player.

The service is exceptional and I found the staff to be very welcoming – nothing was too much hassle. It can be hard in Costa Rica to find a hotel of this standard that is right on the beach, so I was very impressed with the location and delighted to walk down to the ocean mere steps away from the pool.
