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

We stayed in Villa 28. Awesome place. The Villas are magnificent - most of them with private pool. There are only about 40 spread over the hill / forest so it does not feel crowded at all. The location is super - but make sure to check as some Villas have a much nicer ocean view than some others. Food... More

Enrique and Natalia are awesome. We were promptly picked up at the airport in Bocas and then hopped on the water taxi for the resort 15-20 minutes ride). We went into town most days via water taxi and it was very easy. Both restaurants at the resort are fine and it is fun to have the chef come and cook... More

My wife and I have been to several nice resorts in the Caribbean, Mexico and Asia. Red Frog is a must go. Maybe the best beaches and definitely the best spa we have experienced. My wife and I love visiting different spas, and I have never seen a spa like this. The spa is located in a little island valley.... More

Nestled among the tropical brush, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and a bustling bay is Red Frog Beach Resort. And this place is nothing short incredible. Take a short flight from Albrook airport in Panama City to Bocas del Toro where a friendly representative from the resort greets you. A 5-10 minute ride takes you to Red Frog's bayside Bocas...

I made the trip to Red Frog in Mid April/2015 with my best friend just for a relaxing get away. Every part of the trip was amazing. Thankfully we read the reviews and knew that we needed to grocery shop in Bocas. The resort office in town was so helpful from the very beginning. They picked us up from the... More
