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

I visited Red Frog Bungalows early March 2015 with a group of close friends for a bachelor party / surf trip and had the time of our lives. The service provided by Scott and his staff was AMAZING, as they attended to our every need, took us to the best surf spots, and fed us the most delicious food and... More

I'll react to some quotes from Red Frog Bungalows' Web Site: "Our talented chefs prepare and serve three excellent meals served daily" ; “3 delicious meals per day”. Stale bread, velveeta or Kraft singles, jumbo boxes of cereal, coffee made the previous night, mystery meat, store bought cookies, hot sauce bottles covered in ants... these, and others, do not equate...

There doesn't seem to be too many places left like this. Uncrowded. Pristine. Roughing it in all the right ways. Just enough to feel adventurous, but all the amenities to make you not want to leave. Food tastes like they just caught the fish, grew the carrots and wrestled the pig. The locale is amazing, but Red Frog could be... More
