While you are in Bocas we would like to take a minute and give you a few pointers around the area, in fact here are our top things to do in Bocas del Toro.
Playa Estrella is the perfect place to swim with starfish, located just north of Isla Colon, with white powder-like sand. Filled with literally thousands of starfish with a great variety of colors, its clearly one of the most unforgettable experiences, overall it's ok to be close to them however it is very important for you not to take them out of the water, they are also very sensitive so they are best left alone in the water however not harmful at all.
This is one of the most layback places you can be in Bocas del Toro, in fact of all Panama, this is the perfect escape from the crowds back home, the entire coastline of this beach is covered almost perfectly aligned palm trees, there are also isolated areas with perfect spots for snorkeling.
Isla Carenero is a few minutes away by boat from Colon Island, this place is perfect to connect with nature, you can walk the entire island in about two hours and its a smooth experience, in this expedition you can also find all kinds of tropical fruits, just to make sure you really feel the adventure.

Of course, we can´t leave out of this article the great culinary experience that awaits in Bocas del Toro, you can find pretty much anything for every taste in this Caribbean destination.
Falafels Bocas, Isla Colon. It's a small size venue with a limited menu however they are also out of this world, their Falafel Wraps are insane and they serve them with fries, they also have Shawarma and Shakshuka on the menu.
Ciao Pizza in Isla Colon. Everything we had from this menu was absolutely top class, everything is wood oven cooked, this very private restaurant is no more than a few picnic tables, they offer white and red pizza with a thin crust.
Sea Monkey, Isla Bastimentos, even if you are not staying on this island it's definitely worth the boat ride. This is the place to have breakfast for sure, in our opinion a must for Brunch! Especially after Friday night on Saturday night. A great combination of Mexican and Asian cuisine, somehow they work together from pad thai to huevos rancheros and coconut crushed french toasts.
