Bocas Del Toro - accommodations

Jump to last reply

I posted this as Thorn Tree as well but didn't get any responses...
I have narrowed my options for where to stay in Bocas to 3 places, in different price ranges. I am wondering if anyone has a personal recommendation or preference. I don't want to stay in Bocas town but would like the to be able to get there for dinner and drinks, so we were looking for off Colon but near by. Bastimentos seems to be the island you would take a taxi to for all the beaches anyway, so it would be nice to be closer and on a more natural island. I've read some mixed reviews of Isla Carenero due to bugs, lack of beaches, noise if you are close to Bocas town and a swampy center. Is the extra price of the over-water bungalo worth it to be on Bastimentos, verse the more reasonably priced Carenero options. Any recommendations about these places would be helpful.

Isla Bastimentos - Eclypse Del Mar

This place looks fun, and got almost all good reviews. But its pretty expensive and I am not sure how close to anything it is.

Isla Carenero - Careening Cay

Less expensive, and has good reviews post 2006, all the pre 2006 reviews were not good (anyone know what changed). But I read somewhere that this side of the island has a pretty bad sand flea problem. Also, I am not sure what is near this place to do. I know there is a restaurant on site, but if there were other bars on the island nearby.

Isla Carenero - Tierra Verde

The cheapest option, but this place seems to be closer to a guest house / hostel then the other options. I also read some bad reviews about the bugs here as well. Otherwise, it has been recommended and has good reviews.
