I have travelled to Baocs three times and can tell you this is the BEST spot on the BEST island in Bocas! Staying here really gives you that sense of island living, as there are no cars (unlike Colon). The owners Ivan and Cookie are great and know the area as they have lived there full time for well over a decade. Whether you are there to surf, explore the natrual resources, or just sit back and read in a hammock - this is the place! The hotel is clean, comfortable and all around awesome. However, what makes it special is the exceptional quality of the hosts - who make you feel like part of the Tierra Verde family.
