Hi folks - I will be traveling to Bocas with a group of 6-8 people in May 2013. We want to rent a vacation home for 10-14 days. We are looking for something that is a short walk/bike ride away from bars, restaurants, shopping, etc. But we also want to be on the beach to snorkel, dive, swim, surf.
Is there an area/beach on one island that has this to offer?
Is one island is more "backpacker friendly" -- aka cheaper?
Carenero vs Colon vs Bastimentos?
Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
