The paradisiac archipelago of Bocas del Toro is one of the Panama’s top beach destination.
This full day tour combines the most popular spots in the area to enjoy its natural wonders and its relaxing beaches.
First, you will make a short boat ride to Laguna Bocatorito or Dolphin’s Bay, where it’s almost guaranteed to spot the semi-permanent population of bottlenose dolphins that graciously will play around the boat. The dolphins of Bocas del Toro seem to have a special predilection for this bay, due to the abundance of small fish, crustaceans and squid of its waters.
Then, you will make a stop in Crawl Cay – one of the most popular snorkeling spots in Bocas del Toro. This tiny island is surrounded by lush coral gardens with an abundance of tropical fishes, coral heads and colorful sponges.
After lunch you will visit Red Frog Beach to discover the poison-dart frogs that are abundant in Bastimentos’ hills. With a little luck, you might encounter a three-toed sloth or some monkeys as well.
Here, you will also have some free time to relax on the white and golden sand beach.
To end the day, you will snorkel in one of the best places in the area: Hospital Point. This is a shallow sandy bay with a reef that starts at three meters and consists mainly of lettuce and brain coral, which gradually descends until it becomes a wall with a depth of sixteen meters. The wall has numerous cracks and caverns and some dark overhanging ledges, which are home to a wide variety of marine life.
Lunch is included in a local restaurant.
