My partner and I visited here for 6 nights. Richard and his team made us feel so comfortable, that we truly were able to feel like we were in paradise. 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...

Such a relaxing, quiet place to be but at the same time, appreciated the wi fi access so that we could keep in touch with our kids at... More

This house is conveniently located on an island about 5 minutes from Bocas. It is a very nice secluded house that is close to everything via a taxi boat ride. Boat taxis into Bocas is only $1-$2 per person. The house has very large rooms, each with private living areas, private bathrooms and baths. All rooms in the house have... More

We had an excellent stay with Richard at Punta Rica. It was such a unique experience. You felt like you were in a tree house in the jungle, but with gourmet food and wifi. The service was superb; anytime you wanted to arrange for a boat Richard would make a call and it would happen. The accommodations were spotless and... More

My husband and I found ourselves with nowhere to stay in Bocas the night before our arrival, which resulted in some frantic e mails and phone calls at the last minute. When we got hold of Richard he apologised and said his place was currently closed and he unfortunately wouldn't be able to accommodate us. A short conversation followed, and... More
