|At your hotel in Bocas del Toro
|WHAT TO WEAR
Comfortable athletic shoes and light leisure clothing, a bathing suit and sunscreen. A hat, bathing suits and sunglasses are recommended.
Naturally, the best things to do in Bocas del Toro include being in, around, and on the water. And in this tour you will have the opportunity to see beautiful beaches and reefs of Bocas del Toro in one day.
We will start by boat, heading directly to Dolphin Bay. This quiet bay is located about 15-20 minutes from the main island, Isla Colon. The abundance of fish and crustaceans in these waters make Dolphin Bay the perfect place for their habitat within the archipelago. If we are lucky, we may observe these friendly dolphins jump, swim and play in pairs and groups of 5 to 6.
Around noon the boat heads towards Coral Cay, a nice area for snorkeling. As you float weightlessly surrounded in the turquoise sea, witness hundreds of reef fish go about their daily business. This is also the place where we can delight ourselves with exquisite Caribbean dishes, offered by a panoramic restaurant on the sea. The menu varies depending on the day’s catch.
(Lunch not included).
Lastly, we’ll visit Bastimentos Island, and walk through the mangroves of this national park to make it to Red Frog Beach. Named after the red frogs found in the lush parts of the island, Red Frog Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Bocas. It’s on the windward side facing out to the sea, and can be a bit rough at times, so be careful if you decide to swim. Here you can also enjoy some restaurants and bars if you wish.
NOTE: This is a shared tour, but can be arranged privately.
