Bocas del Toro + The Rest of Panama

Hotels in Bocas del Toro + The Rest of Panama

After a short flight from Panama City to Playón Chico (which the hotel will help arrange), guests of one of the five overwater casitas are picked up by boat and taken to the property’s private island.

The all-inclusive resort has 10 thatched-roof cabins and a beachfront restaurant that serves fresh fish. Book one of the hotel’s guided tours of neighboring villages, where you can buy crafts made by the local Kuna tribe.

The rooms are homey and comfortable. Guests enjoy fresh baked pastries and fruit for breakfast on their private veranda. Best of all, the area boasts world-class bird watching.

A 30-minute drive from the throbbing heart of Panama City, this eco-adventure lodge sits at the edge of a vast, pristine jungle, Soberanía National Park.

The property has 14 miles of volcanic-sand beaches and a mangrove forest. With paintings by local artists and cream tiled floors, all 48 rooms face the Pacific. Board the resort's 34-footer for some of the world's best sportfishing, or head to top breaks with the in-house surf pro.
