Additional Location Information

Isla Bastimentos is a 7 minute boat ride from Bocas Town ($3 a person each way) and an island of no roads, just a sidewalk. We find that Basti exudes the true spirit of the Caribbean as people here are of West Indian decent and speak Guari Guari which is a creole patois that sounds like a Jamaican dialect. We are a 5 minute walk from the public boat dock or a 2 minute walk from the dock we use, "Cholo's Dock". If you like being close to town but don't want to feel as if you are staying at the party, we are the perfect option. Bastimentos is more untouched, more tropical than Bocas Town. If you like seeing how the locals live and want a true island experience, we are for you. If you don't like to be walled off away from the culture, we are for you. Here, reggae music plays and children run around. The locals are very friendly and everyone knows each other. We sit just out of the "town" of Bastimentos, Old Bank, and are a short walk to restaurants including ROOTS, Bushman's Kitchen & coffee shop and organic farm UP IN THE HILL. Red Frog beach and zipline are a 5 minute boat ride away. We have access to boat drivers to take you snorkeling or on a day trip around the islands. Scuba 6 is located in Old Bank and gives our guests special rates. There are plenty of hikes including a beautiful 35 minute trek to Wizard Beach. The popular excursion, The Bastimentos Bat Caves is just a boat ride away. There is a very small beach directly to our left with a cleared area for swimming. Access is rocky so water shoes are recommended. There are several surf breaks within walking distance and many more minutes away by boat. We have yoga classes on our deck once a week (and can arrange more if your group is interested). We also have a massage therapist/esthetician on hand for all of your massage, waxing and facial needs. Bastimentos is the perfect jumping off point for everything in Bocas!
