  • Very quiet, very warm, transparent water possible. Opportunity to observe sea stars, the lazy and the fish. Easy access by a footpath from boca del drago 30 minutes from Bocas town ($2.5 /pp). Food and rental masks on the spot, expect between $ 10-15 lunch and mask cost US $ 3 for two hours.

  • We went from the Dragon Beach up a trail to the Estrella beach. I can recommend this to everyone! The boat let stand and uses your feet - the walk through water and sand is hammer! On the beach itself are super many huge Starfish - warning not to touch and get out of the water, or they die. Have fun :)
