Don't get me wrong: The little hotel is quite nice, with large rooms where you can sleep to the sounds of the waves splashing below and around you (no mosquito nets, though, which can be annoying with all the nosee-ums around). Very friendly landlady, and hammocks to relax in. For night life and shopping you have to take a water taxi as there is not a lot around here. So for partying, go elswhere. If you want it to be real quiet with a jungle feel it is too near to Bocas, so there's not too much of wild life, and you do hear the water taxis and the noise from Bocas. So for nature and tranquility, go to another island. But what we found the worse: You are surrounded her by a crystal clear sea, sooo inviting... until you detect the not so few pieces of human excrement floating about. Obviously, some of the houses build over the sea let their waste water unfiltere directly into the sea. So if you want to swim, again you better go to anoter island. All in all: Though Casa Acuario itself is lovely, it's a bad compromise.
