Bocas del Toro, Panama One Day Tour


If you don't have much time but still don't want to miss out on this tropical paradise this one day tour to Bocas del Toro is for you.

You will be picked up early in the morning at your hotel to head directly to the border of Costa Rica and Panama. After crossing the border over the famous bridge of River Sixaola your driver will bring you to the Port of Almirante. From there you head towards the Dolphin Bay, enjoying a light breakfast on the boat. At the Dolphin Bay you have time to observe dolphins in their natural environment before you're heading towards Cayo Coral. At Cayo Coral you can discover the underwater world whilst snorkelling. The boat will take you past many mangrove forests where you can catch glimpses of the diverse life hiding behind the thickly forested banks.

For lunch you will stop at the Cayo Coral Restaurant, then a visit to Red Frog beach before you departure for the Port of Almirante. The tour ends at around 5:45pm with being dropped off back at your hotel.
