Hotel Olas

Av. Sur at Calle 6, Bocas del Toro, Panama

Hidden at the south end of town, this large wooden hotel is one of the best deals in Bocas, comparable to more centrally located inns that charge twice as much. On each floor, long white corridors lead to common balconies. Built over the water, there's an open-air restaurant and bar on the back deck that has great views of the sea and mainland. Guest rooms are slightly cramped and boxy but comfortable enough, with wooden furnishings, a small TV (with cable), and air-conditioning. Request a room with a balcony and ocean view. Affordable boat excursions depart from the floating platform at the back of the restaurant.

PROS

  • inexpensive
