Boca del Drago, Bocas Town

(3.2/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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.
