My wife and I just spent 6 nights at the beautiful Isla Bastimentos Punta Rica and loved every minute. Your hosts take wonderful care of you ensuring that your holiday is one you won't forget. We felt that it was like lodging in a home stay with your own two story cabin. Despite being secluded away from busy Bocus Town... More

My husband and I just left punta rica after spending three amazing nights. Punta Rica is made up of four rooms that adjoin the "main house" area which is a huge room made out of wood with large windows that look out onto a beautiful jungle scene. The rooms are enormous and each one includes its own living area and... More

Richard arranged all of the activities that we wanted, including arranging a stay in the mountains at another hotel for 2 nights. He called the owners and made all the... More

Collette was the most warm and friendly host! Richard was great and cooks an amazing steak (and other meals). Elena made sure we had great activities every day. Everything about Punta Rica was great. It's a small place and you really feel like family when you're there.

I guess, paradise should be as Punta Rica on Isla Bastimentos. The accommodation is off Bocas town, but to reach only 10 minutes drive by boat. The rooms are large, very clean, provided with many details. The food is excellent. We were hosted by Elena and Mariela (both excellent hosts !). If you care to be reachable, there is reliable...
