The perfect spot for a home base on Isla Caranero. If you want a more secluded and quiet option, this is your spot. It's a $1 taxi ride to the action of Bocas Town (if that's what you're looking for), within kayaking distance of some amazing snorkeling spots such as Isla Solarte and beyond, and within walking distance of a...

We stayed here in March and for us it was the best place we could have stayed in Bocas. Right next to the beach and surf break and with a stunning view. Our room was nice and clean with hot water and AC. The 2 owners Cookie and Ivan are super friendly and helpfull. I can recommend this place to... More

Beautiful place, wonderful location and great people. Great staff and very nice. You can chill and enjoy the pier and take a swim in the crystal clear water. There is a nice beach you can enjoy or go surfing at the point.There are two restaurants/bars close by and Aqua Lounge is down the way as well. Plenty of options for... More

It seems that most of the negative reviews in regards to Tierra Verde are from people who want the luxuries of home in a rustic Caribbean island! NOT HAPPENING PEOPLE! You go to a place like Bocas to experience the rich culture, Caribbean ways of life and it's over all beauty; if you go with the expectation that your going... More

I have been to Bocas numerous times in the past 4 years and have stayed at numerous hotels. I truly prefer to stay away from the mainland because you get the true beach feel vs. the hustle and bustle of the main town. I chose to try Tierra Verde this time and I truly enjoyed myself. The owners made me... More

I have been going to Bocas for about eight years now and have stayed at numerous places there. Although I have known the owners of Tierra Verde for several years from surfing but had never stayed there until this July. I can honestly say everything about this hotel is outstanding. The location is perfect, especially for surfing (or water related... More

We have never just turned out and walked out of a hotel, but had we not been so far away from anything else, we would have. We had reservations for three nights, but we left at first light the first day. My wife could not sleep because of the mold in the room. She went downstairs and slept a few... More

It is quite unfortunate that your bad perception of Bocas del Toro was reflected on our establishment. We will take into consideration your comment on the smell of mold, but you must understand that Bocas del Toro is humid and your visit took place during the rainiest season this year when humidity was at an all time high. If something... More

Definitely my favorite place to stay in Bocas, hands down! Great location- nice and quiet but still super close to everything you would want to do in Bocas. When you get out of the airport, it's a 3 minute taxi ride to a boat, then a 3 minute boat ride to the hotel, super easy. If you just want to... More

The rooms were in poor condition. Musty smell, door wouldn't lock and the mice in the walls and bed bugs made it nearly impossible to sleep. Overall management ability was sub par. Unfriendly and condescending. Do yourself a favor and stay elsewhere

Loved this place during our stay in Bocas. Good location on Caranero island, just 2 min away from the town, quiet area, clean and comfortable rooms, air conditioner, wi-fi, light breakfast, reasonably priced. The owners were very friendly and helpful that made the whole stay there very easy and enjoyable. Would stay here again for sure!!
