Bocas Del Toro

A travel blog entry by simoncole


Wednesday 18th December, 11:30pm

I am sitting in the open air lounge of the Hotel Olas in YET ANOTHER TROPICAL PARADISE. The heavy rain on the corrugated iron roof may sound alarming, but the ceiling fan keeps the temperature and mozies at bay.

We left San Jose at 6am this morning less than impressed with the …

Panama and Parting Thoughts

A travel blog entry by josephandjoel


$32 dollars bought a ticket on a 'direct' shuttle and boat to Bocas del Toro, the remote island paradise in the north western corner of Panama. The shuttle was an old van filled to capacity and basically dumped us at the border in Sixola. We were swiftly exited from Costa Rica and made to walk across the river via a rather old railway bridge. The …

Bocas del Toro

A travel blog entry by lastresguapas


Réveil a 4h30 pour prendre l'avion jusqu'a Bocas del Toro, une île de Panama, un coin de paradis. Boarding pass en carton, 11 passagers et le décollage qui sert le ventre... mais on oublie vite en arrivant ŕ l'hotel Olas sur pilotis. Un sourire et le passeport suisse nous aident ŕ trouver une chambre ŕ trois :-).

Raindrops are falling on my had...

A travel blog entry by seeyou2011


Wir verliessen die schöne Halbinsel Osa um das letzte Drittel unserer gemeinsamen Reise in Angriff zu nehmen: Panama, ein Land von dem wir vorher nicht wirklich wussten, was wir zu erwarten hatten! Kaum über der Grenze (die Grenzprozeduren waren wieder einmal nervtötend) war es dann um uns geschehen. Wir gingen der "Polizei" das erste mal ins Netz …

Chilling in Bocas del Toro

A travel blog entry by mogandfrog


We have spent the last week chilling in Bocas del Toro. We originally intended on staying for 4 nights but decided to extend our visit and move to Isla Caranero, a much smaller island just across the water from Isla Colon. We are staying at a lovely spot called Careening Cay Resort. As it is the low season for tourists at the moment, we are the …

    Our room was very small but clean and it had a window that opened right over the water. Quite nice. The on-demand water heater kind of freaked me out - i had never seen one like it before. It worked more or less. Our room was quite noisy as it was across the hall from the supply room which had a sliding door that banged every time it was closed. The breakfast was a muffin and not a great muffin. The coffee was excellent though and you could buy really good smoothies. Smoking was allowed on the open air common area which could get kind of stinky. The manager (Ben) and Nada who worked the front desk during the day were great as were the cleaning staff. The other front desk staff though were very indifferent and not very helpful. I'm not sure I would stay here again.

    It was away from the middle of town so it was very quiet. The rooms were comfortable and at a good rate. It also has a nice back area, which is the open dining/bar right on the waterfront. There were regularly hummingbirds flying around which was nice. The staff were extremely helpful. The only drawback was that because it was away from the town it sometimes felt a little unsafe walking back at night.

    Noisey if you're downstairs

    The rooms are clean (ours had a funky smell about it) and the hotel is standard. Request a room that is not on the ground floor if you want a quiet night.

    A great view and possibly heaven for everything else.
    They had excursions to offer that cost from 20USD to 40USD.
    The staff was friendly but for the price we paid they could have had a bigger included breakfast.
