Bocas del Toro City Guide
Bocas del Toro Location: Caribbean Coast of Panama
Bocas del Toros is a series of islands located in and around the Bay of Chiriqui which itself is situated along the northeastern coast of Panama. Despite the increasing popularity of Panama, today Bocas del Toro still remains relatively untouched by tourism. Bocas del Toro is known for deep-sea fishing, kayaking, diving and snorkeling, pristine beaches, stunning coral reefs, abundant plant and animal life, plus much more!
The Bocas del Toro Spanish School is located on one of the islands known as Isla Colon. We feel that if you want to get to know this region of Panama, this is the place to be. The main town offers a range of options for individuals interested in outdoor activities. Today one can find at least three PADI dive shops, an abundance of restaurants and bars, boat operators (both for cruises and deep-sea fishing), tour operators and bicycle rentals.
The options for tours and excursions seem endless. One popular tour involves cruising the islands in a 35 foot catamaran. The tour will take you sightseeing past beautiful rainforest covered islands and will stop along the way so that participants can snorkel or dive on some of the pristine coral reefs. The trip will include a fabulous tropical lunch on a deserted white sand beach. Following that there is a hike through the rainforest which allows participants to see monkeys, toucans, sloths, parrots and much more! This is an example of what is possible when you come out to Bocas del Toro!
Overall Bocas del Toro is one of the best places to go anywhere in the world to experience nature at its finest. The waters and sea life of course are a main attraction. However you will be pleasantly surprised at the abundance of plant and animal life found on each of the small little islands. There is no doubt that spending a period of time in this part of Panama will help you forget everything about the outside world.
