Bluff Beach Retreat
Travel Blogs from Bocas Town
Whilst on the islands we did three great day trips to different locations. I should mention that the town of Bocas del Toro, whilst located on the water, doesn’t have it’s own beach. You need to trek a little while to find one worthy of swimming.

I can't remember our tour guide's real name, but he was from Israel and his name means Seagull in Hebrew, so we just called him that (he didn't mind). There were 2 other nice girls in our tour - one Italian (Giovanna) and the other French (Caroline).
