Bocas del Toro – Panamá

Bull's mouths – Panama

March 5, 2012 3 By Christian Gutierrez and Priscilla Gutierrez

Bocas del Toro archipelago located in the Caribbean Panama, border with Costa Rica. Main island is the Colon. A wonderful and unknown place of most Brazilians. Almost every year is summer, island and pristine beaches. Great place to hold snorkelling or with complete equipment, there are some shipwrecks and there are beaches with waves for surfing.

According to the natives, MEANING name of Bocas del Toro, came the sound of waves crashing on rocks that seemed to be the sound of a bull's roar (we do not think that a lot, but OK, do not go counter lol).

Ideal stay 3 a 4 days. Go any time of year.

Its population is approximately 3.000 population.

How to get
Panama City out you have two options to get, It is a plane (We were chosen to) and the other bus. We were there without planning, We were on honeymoon, we had stayed a few days in Dominican Republic (beautiful, already posted about it) then we went to Panama City and decided to stretch a bit to Bocas del Toro, super worth worth.

Aircraft will be a flight hour, companies that make the path areas are: Aeroperlas or Air Panama, beware of excess baggage, these companies are very strict. We were with a turboprop, medooo but we were very well, the problem was excess baggage charged, so take small bags.

The bus will take you around 8 hours.
