I have lived in Bocas for the last 6 years. The Pickled Parrot is one of my favorite bar/restaurants. If you opened a dictionary and looked up the word ¨Tiki Bar¨there would be a picture of the Pickled Parrot. A natural wood structure with a real thached roof built out over the blue/green waters of the Caribbean. Before eating be sure to have either a Pina Colada or a Margarita. These are the best you will find anywhere in Bocas. George, the owner, uses only fresh local pineapple and coconut in the Pina Coladas and fresh local limes in the Margaritas. The fresh ingedients in Georges secret recipe make these drinks better than any others you will taste. After a cold beer or delicious drink, be sure to have something to eat. Everything on the basic menu is delicious, but be sure to inquire about their daily specials. Occaisionally there is roast BBQ pig, local fish and lobster, roasted chicken and other delights that are not listed on the regular menu. Spend a tranquil afternoon or evening enjoing the best sea view in Bocas while you sip on your tropical drink. Visiting the Pickled Parrot is a must if you are staying in Bocas. Tip---Be sure to bring insect repellent. Ocaisionally the sand fleas on Isla Carenero will dine on you while you are dining. Doesn´t happen every day, but come prepared with insect repellent just in case. Access to the Pickled Parrot is by water taxi from Isla Colon to Isla Carenero.
