Located within Panama, getting to Bocas del Toro archipelago involves crossing the southern border of Costa Rica and hopping onto a boat over to the islands. Visiting the village on Isla Colon allows you to step into warm, crystalline waters washing up on one of the most gorgeous coastlines in Central America complete with tropical islands, palm trees, and sandy beaches. This gem is no big secret, in fact, thousands of tourists gravitate towards this small chain of islands and protected reefs to experience a variety of ocean adventures and nature activities. To keep up with demand, several accommodation options are just a stone's throw to the beach and surrounding village. Five-star hotels to small budget bungalows invite you to enjoy this Caribbean paradise. You can cross the border by bus or plane, but rental cars must stay in Costa Rica. Safe border parking is available. Packaged tours provide easiest access.
