July 6, 2016

Are you planning a family trip to Bocas del Toro? There are dozens of family-friendly activities located just minutes away, whether you're an adrenaline junkie looking to get your heart pumping, or looking for a fun, low-key way to spend an afternoon with your family. Before you leave for your trip, make sure you add these activities to your itinerary:

Oreba Chocolate Tour
When you stay in Bocas del Toro resorts, you have to make time for the Oreba Chocolate Tour. Chocolate is becoming one of Panama’s largest exports, and this tour will take you through the cultivation and production of this sweet treat. But, this isn’t some kind of factory tour! Be prepared for a riveting hike through the jungle surrounded by the wildlife.  But, the end of the tour is what will really excite kids, since you will get to taste a variety of different chocolates. This is a safe bet to entertain even the pickiest of kids. After all, what kid doesn’t love chocolate? Learn more about the Oreba chocolate tour, and schedule yours today.

Habla Ya Panama
Families who come to Bocas del Toro resorts almost always find time to visit Habla Ya Panama, one of Panama’s premier Spanish-language immersion programs. Here, guests can experience a lesson in the Spanish language that will be customized to fit the skill levels of everyone in the family. But the lesson doesn’t just take place inside the classroom where it begins. After the beginning of the class, the teacher will take you on a stroll through town and out to lunch while speaking Spanish the entire time. There’s no better place to learn how to speak Spanish than in the heart of Panama, so don’t miss this opportunity to create long-lasting family memories.

Kids love adventure, so when you stay at Bocas del Toro resorts, be sure to take them ziplining through the jungles of Panama. There are a number of different places where your family can experience zooming through the trees, so talk to your resort to figure out which place they recommend. Even though the actual ziplining only lasts a minute, the memory of flying through the sky while the rest of the family cheers you on will last forever!

Water Taxi
There aren’t many places that you can go where you can get around on a water taxi, so take advantage of this when you visit Bocas del Toro resorts. Jumping on a water taxi is a great way to explore the area when you first arrive so your whole family can get used to your new surroundings. Hop from island to island to get a taste of what each different location has to offer, and then cap the evening off with a family dinner together to discuss how much fun you had during the day. No matter how old your kids are, they’ll love exploring the islands by water!
