I had the best time at Red Frog Bungalows! Such a beautiful piece of paradise. Everyone there is super nice and helpful. Not to mention their chef cooks amazing food every day! Scott and the surf guides were helping us to get the best waves possible and awesome to hang out with as Well. If you are in Panama you... 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. Red Frog, along with owner and staff are a league above anything in the area. It has everything to offer, remote and beautiful yet connected to anything that you need... More

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

My friends and I went down to Bocas Del Toro for a week to find some uncrowded surf and warm weather. From the minute we got off the plane Scott along with his staff was waiting for us at the airport with a smile. We knew we were in good hands right away. After the short taxi ride to the... More

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights with Scott and his awesome staff at Red Frog Bungalows. We rented one of the bungalows and loved it. The grounds were meticulously maintained. Not a leaf left on the ground. The bed was comfortable and we loved hearing all the jungle life. Scott and his staff went out of their way... More

If you are looking for a unique surf destination within close proximity to the USA look no further than RFB/BDT. Having traveled the world surfing, such as Tavarua, Fiji, I can honestly state that the setting and surf were exceptional, and only a short 3 hour Miami to Panama City excursion from my home state of Florida. Specific to the... More

Loved, loved staying here: the staff, food, owners, the surf guides, and accommodations are truly great and exactly as advertised. We stayed in a tentalow rather than a bungalow and, as there was more natural light in the daytime compared to the bungalows, preferred this. Couple things to consider packing include more bug spray than you think you need (as... More

This trip was awessum! We traveled as a couple and stayed 2 nights in the bungalow and 4 nights in the tentalow. If you're traveling as a couple I would recommend the tentalow as it's smaller and a little nicer in my opinion. We got used to the jungle noises and by the end of the trip, they would soothe...

The site is very nice with lots of local plantings and big trees. The food is tasty - some of the best prepared fish/seafood I had in Panama. The meals are set, so I am not sure what you would do if you didn't wish to eat what you were served (not a problem for us). The owner is very... More
