We are two couples from Canada who spent six nights at Koko resort in January. We stayed in the back two cabins closest to the shore as they were a little larger and had queen size beds. The cabins had everything we needed and everything worked just fine. Jack and Leigh were the best hosts we could have asked for. They organized tours with locals for a great price and with people they knew were knowledgeable and reliable. They took care of taxis and recommended great restaurants. Breakfasts were great and we really enjoyed Jack and Leigh's sense of humour and chat about local news and politics. Made for lively breakfast conversations.
The location is unique as you are right next door to working families. We really enjoyed this but it might not be for everyone. The locals were very friendly and we at no time felt uncomfortable but their standard of living is very different than ours so you need to be able to accept this. We especially enjoyed seeing the kids out everyday playing soccer or baseball. It reminds me of what our Canadian kids should be doing instead of playing on their computers or watching tv. These kids were having a ball.
We loved our stay here and would return if we came back to Bocas.
Thanks Jack and Leigh
