Bocas del Toro is a province belonging to the Republic of Panama. Its extension limits with the incredible Caribbean Sea, with the province of Chiriquí, with the Ngäbe-Buglé region and with the province of Limón, Costa Rica. It has lush jungles and rainforest settings. In the tropical forests of the island, more than 300 species of vascular plants have been recorded, with a predominance of crab wood, Guaruba, oak, tree and yellow.
They call it Bocas del Toro because it is said that Cristobal Colon when discovered one of the paradisiacal beaches, he saw several waterfalls in the shape of mouths of the bull. It is also said that Columbus distinguishes a large rock on the island of Bastimentos (easy to recognize today) that has the shape of a bull that has been lying down.
Bocas del Toro is also home to two national parks: La Amistad International Park, a World Heritage Site and Isla Bastimentos National Marine Park, Panama’s first marine park and an important nesting site for leatherback and hawksbill sea turtles. It offers us from luxury resorts, all included; eco-lodges on private islands; hostels for surfers on the beach; glamping lodgings; spectacular bed and breakfasts; to rental houses in front of incredible beaches.
A great place to forget about the cosmopolitan madding crowd and connect with Mother Nature.
