Bahia Del Sol Bocas del Toro Reviews
Cheaper alternative with great hosts Dec 05, 2008
When we landed at Bocas Del Toro airport only my travel buddy Tom had a room booked in Bahia Del Sol Guest House.
Jack the owner had come to meet Tom at the airport, and even though they were fully booked they said not to worry they would find space for me somewhere. Once we arrived at the guest house 3 of the hosts spent the next half hour carrying a bed from their house next door into the guest house and upstairs to put another bed in Toms room.
Jack the owner and his son ran the place and they were so friendly throughout the stay,nothing was too much bother,and both great fun as they took us out on the town a few nights, Jack then cooks breakfast in the mornings and one evening treated us to an evening meal whilst sat out on the decking over looking the amazing view of the ocean.
They let us borrow their 2 man kayak one day so we could go around the coast.
A very laid back place, nice rustic wooden interior with a relaxing lounge downstairs which leads out onto the waterside decking area which is a great place to unwind after a day exploring the Island.
The Location is good away from the noise and hustle and bustle of the main town, but when you do need to get to town it is just a 3 min and .50 cent taxi ride to the center of the commercial district of Bocas or a 10-15 min walk.
Bahia Del Sol is just a 2 min walk from the Cabana beach on Isla Colon and a 3 min car taxi ride from the airport.

Bahia Del Sol Overview
Bahia Del Sol is a private guest house that will make you feel at home during your time in Bocas Del Toro. Bahia Del Sol now consists of 2 homes side by side that are connected by a joined dock. The main home is Bahia Del Sol and consists of 4 of the nicest rooms available in Bocas Del Toro. Each room in Bahia Del Sol is available to rent by the day. Next door to Bahia Del Sol is Casa Rosada which has a more rustic feel and features 3 cabin style rooms built over the water. Casa Rosada is more affordable and can be rented by the room or the entire Casa Rosada house can be reserved for groups.
Bahia Del Sol and Casa Rosada are located outside of the main town (Bocas Town) on Isla Colon and away from the other Bocas Del Toro Hotels. Both homes are built over the waters of Saigon bay in a Panamanian village. The neighborhood around Saigon Bay consists of Panamanian families and the homes of long-term expats from all over the world who call Bocas home. This area not only provides us a more interesting part of the island to live in but gives our guests a better cultural experience then staying at your typical Bocas Del Toro Hotel located in the commercial only districts of Bocas.
When you do need to get to town it is just a 3 min and .50 cent taxi ride to the center of the commercial district of Bocas or a 10-15 min walk. Bahia Del Sol is just a 2 min walk from the Cabana beach on Isla Colon and a 3 min car taxi ride from the airport. Bahia Del Sol and Casa Rosada can easily be reached by car taxis coming from the airport or boat docks. If you want to pay a little extra you can even take a boat taxi directly to the dock of either home.
