The restaurant is at the marina which gives it an added ambiance. Food is good and at a good price. Nice when they have live music. Friendly wait staff.

I was in Isla Colon/Bocas and went to Calypso Cantina for their BBQ night. It was nice to relax and listen to some live music. We got the ribs which were a huge portion and tasty. I recommend stopping by Calypso Cantina.....you need to take the water taxi from the main street of Isla Colon downtown.

The cantina is a fun place to hang out and visit with other cruisers. The food is wonderful and the drinks very generous. They have the longest happy hours of all 4pm-9pm. The new managers, John & Alina, are doing a great job... Be sure to stop in for a meal if you are in Bocas...
