About the neighbourhood
Old Bank is a local, Caribbean village. It's the real deal. It's far less touristy than Bocas Town and provides guests with the chance to mingle with local residents rather than only other travelers (though there are plenty of opportunities for that, as well).

There are multiple restaurants and bars out over the water, and beautiful views from just about everywhere.

You will definitely hear our neighbors' chickens crowing and may hear faint hints of Caribbean music coming from the overwater bar at the other end of town. We think it makes for a relaxing, fun atmosphere that really feels like you're in the Caribbean.

The Sea Monkey is located at the residential east end of Old Bank just a short walk from bars, restaurants, and markets. It
Getting around
Water taxis from Bocas or elsewhere in the islands will drop you off at our restaurant or your bungalow. The fare from Bocas Town is $3 from the Bastimentos dock on Main/3rd Street in Bocas Town in the daytime, $5 at night. The dock is a 60-cent taxi ride or a 5-minute walk from the airport.

We are a short walk from the center of Old Bank, and about a 20-minute walk from Wizard Beach. There is also excellent snorkeling just a 15-minute walk through town from the Sea Monkey.

To Red Frog Beach or to Isla Solarte, the fare from our dock is $5.
Car not needed
How to get there
To get to us, make your way to the Bastimentos dock on Main Street. From there, it's $3 per person during the daytime ($5 at night) and takes about 10 minutes. Just tell the captain you're going to the Sea Monkey and he will bring you directly to us.
