It's only a short hop from Bocas town but it feels so special and exciting. We plunged into the warm water right off our bedroom deck and were greeted by thousands of little sardine-like fish swirling in schools around us. Futher down within easy diving, we saw star fish on the sandy bottom, gathered them in one area only to... More

We loved our experience at Casa Acuario! We stayed in the room on the bottom left and enjoyed the ability to run from our room directly into the warm ocean water. The room was clean and comfortable, and we also had plenty of time to sit on the dock, watch the boats go by, swim, catch a boat to the... More

DumpDumpDump. Stayed 2 nights. Had to negotiate with Edgar, the caretaker to turn on the water when we needed to flush or shower. If we could wake him up that is. Owner was herself on vacation . This place could be better, but is neglected. The island itself has a small desirable stretch from this place to Bibi's. The rest... More

I want to apologize to all our guests who have been at Casa Acuario for the past couple of days. Our water pump broke and it took 2 days to buy a new one and have it installed and up and running again.One room had a toilet breakdown. as well and is being replaced today. We notified all our guests... More

Excellent location, comfortable beds, spacious rooms. Swim right off your dock or walk up the shoreline and find a spot. It's easy to catch the water taxi to get to the main island for more choices of bars and restaurants. Casa Acuario is a wonderful place to stay in Bocas. NOTE: the no-see-um bug bites. I'm the kind of person... More

We have stayed at Casa Acuario on two separate occasions and were not disappointed on either stay. Elia's breakfast was the highlight of the day. Very friendly staff and very clean. Very economically priced.

Very cosy little hotel with big clean and pretty rooms. The lady who takes care of you is really nice and welcoming. Everything was perfect except for the location where all the boat taxis passes by and make quite a lot of noise. Carenero island is next to Bocas island and there is a bit of water traffic around.

This was our second stay at Casa Acuario in the last year. A wonderful spot. Elia and her staff took wonderful care of us. A perfect place to stay just outside of Bocas Town. You can sit out on the deck at night and listen to the music from Bocas. We'll be back.

My girlfriend and I stayed here on extended "girls night out" that we decided to meet up for relatively 1/2 way… she came from USA, me from Europe, both mid-30s. We salivated at the pictures of Casa Aquario for about a month in anticipation and were happy to find that it exceeded our expectations, and more. Upon arrival - water... More

Casa Acuario is a perfect place for a getaway! It is a 5 minute boat ride away from the main island making it close enough if you want to go there and far enough to be away from it all. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. Great inside woodwork gives the suites that beautiful cozy feeling to it - makes... More
