Runway in Bocas del Toro


Throughout these past years, Bocas del Toro, along with Isla Bastimentos, a small island located in the Bocas region with a couple ot high end resorts, have been one of the most visited tourist destinations in Panama. The high end resorts along with a vibrant (but not totally safe) nightlife attract visitors in search of a tropical destination with relatively easy access and a range of activities.

Bocas del toro, Isla Colon, the main island


Bocas del Toro and Las Perlas in the Pacific side of Panama for that matter and San Blas do not play in the same league and the espectacular and completely natural untouched beauty of the more than 365 tropical islands surrounded by absolutely crystal clear waters perfect for snorkeling of San Blas has no parallel in Panama nor the Caribbean.

The Pool in Dutch Cays


Extreme preservation of the San Blas archipelago is rooted in the local Guna law which unlike Bocas del Toro, prohibits the sale of land to foreigners. Some of the islands inhabited by the indigenous in the Dutch Cays would fetch for millions of USD in the market yet they are sold in between Guna families for a couple of thousand USD. If you want to buy some land in Bocas you can, not a problem there.
