Search crystal clear shallows for colorful starfish at Boca del Drago, where palms and mangroves line a white sandy bay. If you look closely, you will see plenty of starfish in the bay in all different colors and sizes-- many call this bay home. Over the years, this natural attraction has brought a hub of tourism to the bay, with plenty of beach restaurants now selling food, drinks and the odd souvenir. Out from the shore look for a small speckle of coral-- it offers good snorkelling conditions in calm waters. Remember not to touch the starfish.

  • A beach at a loss of sight, the sea as a mirror... filled with starfish! Small restaurants held by Panamanian, we eat fresh fish, lobster, we drink beer and life is beautiful! What Jaime is that they understood or started to understand how to do a little trade! Last year there was almost nothing, today we little rest in the shade, we little rent chairs, and in addition it's clean! really this beach is gorgeous!
