Snorkeling at Our Luxurious Panama Resort 

Here at Bocas del Toro, we strive to appreciate every guest and equip them with the knowledge necessary to feel at home in our Caribbean oasis. We are also proud to be an eco-friendly Panama resort, constantly adapting to protect our private island and its waters. Our water villas and other buildings rest on stilts, constructed to avoid interfering with the area’s coral. So as you enjoy hours of snorkeling bliss from your private overwater villa, help us preserve the surrounding ecosystem by following these simple tips. Thank you! 

  • Always wear reef-safe sunscreen: all villas are stocked with premium reef-safe bath and body amenities
  • Never touch coral reefs: you also risk stepping on prickly creatures, like urchins
  • See a cool marine animal? Leave it alone and don’t harass them: let’s coexist
  • Ocean finds (shells, coral, etc.) aren’t souvenirs: save memories with a GoPro
  • Pick up all garbage: we can direct you to the proper disposal areas around the resort
  • Don’t feed fish or any other reef animals: they’ll thank you later
