Rainforest, Islands & Indigenous Communities:

Bocas del Toro

The Archipelago

The Bocas del Toro Archipelago consists of rainforest-covered islands with white-sanded beaches and coral reefs. There are excellent opportunities for wildlife observation. Keep your eyes out for diverse animal species that make their home in the mangroves, islands and nearby mainland. From dolphins and tropical fish to the famous red frog the Archipelago is waiting for you to discover the wonders of this area. Visit local indigenous communities, learn about their culture and how they process delicious chocolate in the rainforest.

The Mainland

Compared to the islands, the Bocas del Toro mainland is rather unexplored and adventurous, covered by lush deep rainforests. Get off the beaten track and visit the Naso Teribe community in the middle of the jungle or watch out for manatees in the mangrove reserve of San-San Pond Sak or learn about how bananas are grown and harvested. The Bocas del Toro mainland waits to be discovered by the more adventurous visitor looking to get off the beaten track!
