But, we are on a quiet street where you won’t hear loud music, day or nite, even during festivals. Walk, bike, (60¢) taxi a mile to the first of many pristine beaches, and on to hikes in the rainforest, and to surfing sites world renowned.

Interaction with guests
Our building is a duplex. You occupy the larger part, the owner (me) lives in the adjacent studio, each of us with total security/privacy. I am available to assist you in any way you wish; but, I regard your/my privacy — you won’t know I’m next door unless you want/need to. I’ve lived in Bocas for 16 years, own property, manage businesses, and I am the retired Bocas Rep for US Embassy Panama. Meaning, whatever your Bocas interests, I am your experienced personal concierge. Only you and I share our home; there are no other renters/occupants. So, ‘mi casa es su casa’.

About the neighbourhood
Our front street is the road up island. To Hospital Bocas, the fair grounds, the Smithsonian Tropical Research Station, Finca Monos Botanical Garden of Eden, to Bluff Rd spectacular beaches. Or, to where the road splits, on thru farms and jungles, to Drago at the north end of Isla Colon. Behind us is a private residence. Next door is a hostel, hosting surfers who want a non-party place to lay back. Across one street is a hotel, patronized mostly by Panamanians from Panama City visiting for the weekend. Across the other street is a BnB for foreigners wanting quiet . Kitty-corner is a park, with a small gym for exercisers and for dog walkers. I.e. we are a peaceful quasi-residential neighborhood.
Getting around
Our island has cheap taxis, motorbike, bicycle, skateboard rentals. Most restaurants and shops are walking distance. Getting to nearby Islas Carenero and Bastimentos is a boat taxi for a few $'s. The outer islands you may wish to visit are served by 30+ local tour operators, offering options customized to your interests: swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, or just enjoying a splendid boat ride viewing our beautiful bay.
Car not needed
How to get there

Ferry: FerryBocas: 2.0 km
If you are arriving by air, my house is 4 blocks from Bocas Airport. If you are arriving by water taxi from mainland Almirante, board a Bocas Marine water taxi for 30 minute trip to Isla Colon ($5 per person); my house is 6 blocks away.

Arriving either way, get a car taxi to my house (.60¢ per person + tip for luggage help). Tell taxi driver to take you to Hotel Delfines. My house just across the street.
