Bocas del Toro, Panama
Extending from the mainland cloud forest mountains to the tropical island chains, Bocas del Toro is considered Panama’s top travel destination. The archipelago has 9 main islands, 52 cays, and thousands of islets. Home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Panama’s first National Marine Park, Bocas del Toro has also become one of Panama’s most visited eco-tourism destinations. Considered the ‘Galapagos of the Caribbean’ Bocas del Toro is also one of the most biologically diverse places on earth.
Bocas del Toro has just the right balance of development and raw natural beauty. For the perfect holiday, choose from luxurious resorts, jungle eco-lodges and private island resorts to beachfront surf hostels and island-style bed and breakfasts. Then, from your home-base you can go on sail around the island chain, zipline through the rain forest canopy, scuba dive in some of the most biologically diverse tropical coral reefs in the region, learn to surf in warm Caribbean waves, or take on many other adventures. You will be able to explore deserted palm lined beaches, coral reefs teeming with sea critters, swim with manatees, or even see one of the last remaining monarchies on the American continent. It’s impossible to see all of Bocas del Toro on one vacation, and after one visit, you will find out why so many visitors always come back or never leave.
