The archipelago of Bocas del Toro has remained a unique and unspoiled place, only recently having been discovered by international travelers. An early visitor, Christopher Columbus visited the islands on October 6, 1502 where he took refuge in the calm waters and gathered food from the islands for their voyage home.

Bocas is an outdoor lovers paradise with unspoiled coral reefs, deep-sea fishing, boating, kayaking, snorkeling, surfing and white sandy deserted beaches and coves. The local people of the province are made up of mainly indigenous tribes and descendants of slaves from Jamaica, which contributes to Bocas' diverse and lively culture.

Locals and travelers alike travel leisurely between the islands in dugout canoes and kayaks. The islands each offer something different in terms of wildlife and bio-diversity. Sloths, monkeys, toucans, parrots, iguanas and tiny brightly colored poison dart frogs are just some of the islands' many inhabitants.

For those that love a more active and challenging trip, Bocas offers some of the best untouched deep-sea fishing in the region. Scuba diving in Bocas del Toro is in some of the best and most diverse waters in all of Central America. Yet the cost is about half what you would expect to pay in places like Roatan, Honduras.
