Getting Here and Around

Avenida G leads north from Bocas town over an isthmus to the rest of Isla Colón, where the road soon forks. Veer right for Playa Bluff and the surf breaks of Paunch and Dumpers, which can be reached in about 30 minutes on a very rough road by bicycle, or in an hour on foot. A taxi takes about 40 minutes, and costs $20. A boat to Paunch or Dumpers from Bocas town should cost $10. Bocas del Drago is accessible by boat, taxi, or bus. On weekdays buses depart from Parque Bolívar for Bocas del Drago at 6:45, 10, noon, 3, and 6, returning 40 minutes later. The trip costs $3. Taxis charge $25, but the boat trip is the same price, and includes Swan's Cay.
