May 25, 2016

What better way to spend a summer vacation than on a stunning white beach with crystal clear waters enjoying Bocas Del Toro surfing, snorkeling and more? The Boca region is an isolated region of Panama and is growing in popularity amongst international travelers. This gorgeous island is home to many beautiful features and here are three fun activities to consider for your Bocas summer getaway this year.
  1. Incredible Beaches: As you are walking down the shorelines of Bocas, you will love its beautiful white sand and clear water. Red Frog Beach is one of the most popular beaches in the area and there are many beaches the further you walk and want to explore! In fact, in three hours, you can walk along the beaches of Red Frog, Turtle, Polo and the Bastimentos Nature Preserve. For relaxing or fun with friends, look into Starfish Beach. If you are looking for some adventure, Paunch and Bluff Beaches are perfect for those who enjoy hiking the day away and seeing the nature in all of its glory. Last, you can also visit the Zapatillas Islands and enjoy boat tours, as well as the other amenities and activities in this national park.
  2. Snorkeling Opportunities: One of the great ways to enjoy the sea is through snorkeling. When waters are crystal clear, you can see the beauty of the ocean, which is such a fun way to spend your vacation and get an experience you can’t anywhere else. You can find opportunities to explore on your own, or join a group on a tour and have a guide show and teach you about the different areas of the sea. In some cases, you can even have a day trip snorkeling with a break to enjoy delicious local cuisine and even a cocktail if you so please!
  3. Diving Adventures: If you are an experienced snorkeler looking for the next adventure, then you will love diving in Bocas Del Toro. What is so great about this area is it accommodates divers of all experience levels, from beginners to seasoned veterans. The water is warm and inviting allowing you to get an experience like no other of the gorgeous water, fish, coral reefs and other sea creatures in the area. Plus, since the area at one point was a hideout for Caribbean pirates, you never know what you’ll find during your dive!  Diving is a great way to learn the ropes or advance your skills if it isn’t your first time.
