About this trip

The islands of Bocas del Toro dot the Caribbean, close to the border with Costa Rica.

Accessed by plane, road and boat from Panama or Costa Rica, the main settlement is the small surfing town of Bocas, with its many delicious restaurants and coffee shops.

Surrounding region

The surrounding region is made up of lush rainforest, pretty coral reefs, crystal-clear waters, extensive mangrove forests and some of the best beaches in the Caribbean.


The archipelago is very much influenced by a laidback Afro-Caribbean culture but is also home to several indigenous communities such as the Ngobe. 

This relatively untouched corner of Panama opens up a whole new aspect of this surprising country.
