Bocas del Toro: Bocas Town
Our Panama kayaking trip begins in Bocas town, one of the most popular destinations in the Bocas del Toro province.
Bocas town offers travelers delicious cuisine to indulge in at the many restaurants that thrive in this seaside setting. Explore the colorful waterfront village, docks, and sandy beaches while wandering through the main streets to discover this little slice of Panama’s islands.
Don’t forget to take a peek in the many markets throughout town to learn about local ingredients and try out some tasty fresh fruit!
On our Bocas del Toro tours, we love enjoying fresh ceviche and a cold beer while looking out at the beautiful sea before we begin our kayaking trip. We meet up with our travelers in town to explore, relax, and chat about the next few days before preparing to embark on our journey.
We close our time in Bocas town by climbing aboard a private boat to take us out to our secluded island eco-resort. Enjoy the sound of the sea lapping against the boat and peer at islands passing by as we head through the water to begin our grand adventure!
Isla Bastimentos National Marine Park
Isla Bastimentos isn’t just renowned for hosting an incredible National Marine Park, which spans over 13,000 hectares and protects over 250+ marine animals, but is also a well-loved area for ecotourists looking to experience beautiful eco-lodges right in the heart of this biodiversity hotspot.
We’re committed to ecotourism, and also to our customer’s comfort and happiness, which is why we chose to base our all-inclusive kayaking vacations out of this wonderful eco-resort on Bastimentos island.
We love providing our travelers with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the lush wild beauty of this region. To provide you with a deeper connection to the area, we include a guided nature hike through the island and Salt Creek village, a local island community.
The eco-resort on Isla Bastimentos provides adventurers with ample opportunities to lounge by the seaside at happy hour, surf crystal clear waves, dive and snorkel amongst the coral, go spearfishing, enjoy after hours yoga under the stars, or simply relax with divine massage therapy sessions. And your guides are available to help you learn any of these adventures – no experience required!
Want to try surfing? We got you!
Want a buddy to snorkel with? We’re available!
Try your hand at spearfishing? We know the spots and can show you techniques!
Separate yourself from the distractions of the outside world by escaping into this tropical paradise!
Isla Zapatillas Coral Reef Snorkeling
One of our favorite activities during our Bocas del Toro all-inclusive kayaking vacation is an afternoon snorkeling at Isla Zapatillas.
Part of the National Marine Park, this island hosts some of the most breathtaking coral reefs in Panama. The park itself has over eighty different coral species thriving under its protection, some of which are thought to be over 10,000 years old. Experience this underwater wonderland and some of the best Panama snorkeling by pulling up your kayak and immersing yourself in this colorful seascape.
Isla Zapatillas is not only one of our top snorkeling spots in Panama, but it also hosts some of our most treasured beaches and hikes. We love stopping along these pristine sandy shores and relaxing on the beach, swimming through the waves, or snorkeling through the crystal clear water to see coral and tropical fish.
Sea turtle nesting season in Panama is also coming to a close in this area during September, meaning the opportunity to spot baby hatching sea turtles is increased!
Starfish Beach on Isla Colón
There is so much to see in this region! We continue “wildlife spotting” with a stop at Starfish Beach on Isla Colón.
Starfish Beach is one of our favorite places in Panama where you can see starfish. The waters are clear and calm without much swell, and the white sands make these striking red and orange creatures pop against their surroundings!
Extra Benefits on our All-Inclusive Kayaking Vacations
Our goal is to give our guests the best vacation experience they’ve ever had during this Panama excursion, so we take care of almost everything to let you completely escape without any worry or hassle.

Professional adventures themselves, our guides are exceptional paddlers, surfers and fishermen, are fluent in both English and Spanish, and have all the kayaking tips needed to ensure you can adventure comfortably and gain a thrilling, out-of-the-box experience while exploring Panama.
For four nights you’ll get to sleep at a private, off-grid eco-lodge with optional beachfront accommodation available on a first-come, first-serve basis. We’ll provide you with all kayaking gear and kayaks, recreational equipment for water sporting such as snorkels, flippers, boogie boards, yoga mats, and more!

We’re there to care for you.
To ensure you have as much support as possible during each kayaking trip, a safety and support boat will accompany kayakers throughout this exciting excursion. Water, refreshments and beer are available for paddlers as an included amenity, giving you plenty of options to choose from to boost your energy as you visit each island.
It’s our intention to help you release all the weight of the outside world while on your kayaking vacation, however, we know how important it is to still be reachable and connect when needed. The eco-resort supports your needs by providing high-speed WiFi throughout resort grounds, and 24-hour on site staff to provide any assistance.
