Scott the owner of RF was an absolute legend. Nachyo Momma's beach bar attached to RF was the highlight for us! Amazing cocktails and the best fish tacos ever! If you are a keen surfer this lodge is for you. The lodge is predominantly marketed towards surfers but you can of course stay there either way. Comfortable beds and the... More

I had a couple of days to get to Bocas with my friend Andy to find surf and enjoy the area. We had an awesome time staying with Scott on the property at Isla Bastimentos and really enjoyed the "tentalow." Falling asleep to the sound of rain, frogs, and jungle was amazing and the food was A+++++++ (cheers Bobo!!) Also,... More

Prepare yourself for the best vacation you have ever had. I have been quite a few places all around the world. Red Frog Bungalows was the most unique and best experiences I have ever had. Not only is the food amazing but Scott has unique teas from all over the world, the best cereal...not in a box and of course... More

Our stay at the Red Frog Bungalows was terrific! No matter what we wanted to do, Scott and his staff helped make it happen. From guided treks to zip lining, they made us feel like we were part of the family. A wonderful slice of paradise; the water was as clear as the marketing pictures, and the waves perfect this...

My friends and I have just returned from Red Frog/Panama and we really hated to leave! We had a complete blast at Red Frog. The surroundings are stunning, the beach and ocean here is awesome - we were lucky in that it was calm while we were there as we're not surfers. We got to paddle board which is harder... More

Had an amazing time at the bungalos, a very fun and laid back place. Went snorkeling, paddle boarding, zip lining and soaked up sun on the beach! Woke up everyday right on the beach. Drinks are plentiful and delicious, and great to enjoy in one of the many hammocks. The resident dog Tequila is friendly and adorable! The food was... More

Just traveled to Red Frog Bungalows spring of 2015 with some friends for my bachelor party surf trip. I've been to Panama many times but never to Bocas del Toro. I've also traveled to Central and South America numerous times, the Caribbean, and Indonesia; and without hesitation I would rank this as one of my top surf trips. Not to... More

The BEST margaritas in Bocas !! Right here at Red Frog. Pull up a stool and let Stephanie make you a tasty tequila treat. No mixes! Enjoy the sand, sea, and surf.... you'll probably stay for two. If you're hungry, Mari will make you her famous shrimp and fish tacos. Best on the beach!

Lets begin with the fact that I know every single one of my vacations for the rest of my life will consist of waves...big, surfable, "rough", waves. Keep in mind, I am not a surfer. I am not even CLOSE to a surfer. I would trip carrying a surfboard to the beach. Ideally, my vacation would be on a beach... More

Staying at Red Frog Bungalows was absolutely perfect for the surf trip that I had always dreamt about. Upon arrival, Scott took me in like a brother and got me straight into some really fun waves. All of the boatmen/surf guides who work at Red Frog are completely dialed with the waves, wind direction, tides, and weather and know the... More
