Bocas del Toro is located on the northern Caribbean coast of Panama. The property is located on Bluff beach, a beautiful golden sanded beachfront stretching 5km long. Its shores are inhabited by leatherback and giant sea turtles, while its jungles are home to rare species of frogs, sloths, tropical birds and monkeys. The main town is populated with a diverse mixture of locals and others from around the world who are lucky enough to call Bocas del Toro home. You can find all your necessities at the beach, but should you choose to venture into town, you can find just about everything in the main street from supplies, convenient stores, restaurants or bars & pubs.
