Don't miss the Coral Cay Cabins when you visit Bocas!! We felt like in paradise and enjoyed the silence and wonderful atmosphere at this amazing place. The unique little house is very clean and the Panamanian owners very kind and friendly. The best: you sleep over the sea and a little colorful reef next to you. Ask ahead if they... More

I was there just a few weeks ago with my fiancé. We loved it at Coral Cay! The owners are the nicest people in Panama and are incredibly accommodating. Lily brings fresh coffee and breakfast to you every morning. We loved how remote it was. After a 45 minute boat ride to Coral Cay, we didn't want to leave. Lunch... More

We would definitely recommend this place to anyone that wants a place away from everything, to just relax, snorkel, kayak, and enjoy life. This is located on a very small island about 45 minutes from Bocas Del Toro any other developed island. It is mostly marsh, so everything is built over the water- no hiking, but forces you to just...

We spent 4 nights at Coral Cay - its so peaceful, a fantastic place to wind down. Dio looked after us, providing fantastic breakfasts (including amazing coconut bread and fried eggs with lime peel..!) organising a boat to Zapatillas islands for us and generally being friendly and helpful. We snorkelled over the beautiful reef and saw amazing soft corals, fish... More

We are definitely coming back! The cabins at Coral Cay were superb. It was an amazing experience to be situated at the end of the islands, in complete peace and tranquility, to wake up perched over the water, with dolphins feeding right off your balcony, you can see through the super clear water at all of the beautiful sea life...

The cabins on Coral Cay are set on a small island, just around the corner from the owners house. I stayed here my girlfriend and 2 friends. It was one of the best places I've ever stayed. Totally tranquil and felt a million miles from our working lives. The cabins were gorgeously decorated, with amazing attention to detail. Clearly a... More

We stayed 5 days with Lilly and her husband Dio (Johannes) and enjoyed every one of them lot. The days started perfectly with the sun rise right in front of our casita window and Lilly's amazing breakfast (incl. delicious home made bread). The water is very clear and you can watch diverse fishes right from your terrace. To see more... More

Absolute paradise! We found ourselves at the Coral Cay Cabins under strange circumstances (unrelated to Coral Cay), but were well taken care of by Diogenes (Johannes) at this beautiful eco-resort. I stayed up late into the night, laying in the comfortable hammock and watching lightning on the distant horizon. This is the perfect place to come to forget about your... More

The cabins are Eco, in that there is very little running water, and no electricity, other than the batteries that generate the little fans. Coral cay is one of the reefs in bocas del toro that you would ordinarily visit on one of the boat tours, but having been there a couple of times before we wanted to spend a... More
