It has taken me a little over a year to write this review. I don't typically review places, so this should tell you how special and worth it this place is. My now husband and I stayed here for the last half of our Panama vacation. We were looking for an island getaway and we found it! This place is... More

Hospitality - 10 Scott, Mikey, Chato, Bobo, Bo and the rest of the crew make you feel like your part of the family. Accommodations - 10 - Clean Rooms,... More

Finally on my fourth trip to Panama, I found the perfect blend of surf, service and seclusion. Scott and the staff had everything under control, were friendly and professional. Made my wife and I feel like family. Accommodations were unique and comfortable. Food was good and plentiful. The grounds were spectacular. And, the surf was fun and basically uncrowded. Lots...

9 months ago I started planning a surf trip for my nephew and his friend. I tend to plan vacations that take me away from the beaten path, so I wanted to go somewhere other than Costa Rica and Nicaragua. A friend suggested looking into Panama. My Google research pointed me to Bocas, specifically Red Frog Bungalows. I booked a... More

We wanted to stay somewhere that was off the grid, close to nature, with lots of activities available. Red Frog Bungalows was all of that and more! We stayed for 5 nights, and absolutely every moment exceeded our expectations! We stayed in the tentalow, which was amazing! It is right in the jungle, just a short walk away from the... More

I just got back from this place and I must say that it far exceeded my expectations. I have stayed in very remote all-inclusive places in Fiji , Tonga, Indonesia , etc....but Red Frog offers what these places do at a much more affordable and closer to home price. The host, Scott truly knows the meaning of customer service. Whether... More

Myself and my wife spent five nights at RFB and we didn't quite know what to expect before we arrived. What we found was a beach paradise that exceeded all of our expectations. Scott, who runs the place, is a really good guy and totally focussed on making your stay a success. He has built an eco resort in landscaped... More

My boyfriend and I spent a few nights at Red Frog Bungalows. We spent about 5 or 6 nights on Colon and we really wish we had done the opposite.

Two colleagues and I stayed at Red Frog Bungalows after an intense week of meetings in Panama City. We didn't have a clear sense of what to expect but were looking forward to some time to decompress and see a bit of Panama, since it's unlikely that any of us will ever be back here again. Before arriving, I had... More
