About Bocas del Toro
The archipelago of Bocas del Toro in Panama is situated on the northwestern coast of Panama in and around the Bay of Chiriqui. This isolated region of Panama has only recently been discovered by international travelers. It is for this reason that much of the island chain remains in pristine and untouched splendor. It is a diver and outdoor lovers paradise with unspoiled coral reefs, deep-sea fishing, boating, kayaking, snorkeling and long sandy deserted beaches. Traveling to Bocas, as the locals call it, can either be as simple as taking a 40 minute flight from Panama City or as adventurous as going over land by bus and water taxi. Either way it is a destination unlike any to be found elsewhere in Panama. Isla Solarte, also known as Nancy Cay, is an 8 km2 island located only 1.5 km east of Bocas del Toro, where Garden of Eden is located.
You have two options when deciding to visit Bocas del Toro. Flights are available from Panama City and San Jose, Costa Rica, or you can take a bus from either city. The airport in Bocas is just 3 blocks outside of Bocas town, and is easily within walking distance to the center of town. A taxi from the airport will shuttle you to our water taxi dock for $1.00 to $2.00. When arriving by bus in Almirante (the port town on the mainland), you then take a water taxi to Bocas del Toro (Isla Colon), and then we will arrange transportation to Garden of Eden for you.
