Isla Bastimentos

Sitting fairly close to the mainland and just a short boat ride from Bocas del Toro International Airport, the well-connected but still preserved Isla Bastimentos offers access to a national park of protected rainforest and coastline, as well as an abundance of small, uninhabited islands dotted just offshore. A trip to Isla Bastimentos ensures an opportunity to explore the surrounding coral reefs by snorkeling or scuba diving, as well as a chance to spot the brightly colored poison-dart frogs that give the island's main marina its name. Isla Bastimentos is in Bocas del Toro Province.
