Bocas del Toro image

Visitors are attracted to Bocas del Toro National Park both by its beautiful isolated beaches and also by its plentiful marine life. The snorkelling is excellent, with plenty of coral, and other attractions include wetland birds, nesting turtles, whales, dolphins and red, yellow and orange frogs.

The main town of Bocas, on the largest island (Isla Colón), has a number of hotels, or for those preferring to avoid nightlife, there are also more secluded options along the reef.
