We had such a fabulous time at the Sand Dollar Beach B&B it's hard to know where to begin! We were traveling with two kids, age 9 and 12, and an adult friend of the family, and I'm not sure who had the most fun.
One of the best parts in taking advantage of all the opportunities for recreating around Bocas del Toro was coming home to the Sand Dollar Beach B&B. When not having adventures, we spent a lot of time relaxing on the veranda, playing games with the kids, reading, soaking in the view, swimming at the beach, and finishing off the delicious and decadent breakfast. Dama, the chef, was as talented as she was accommodating. She was happy to make our kids favorite things from home, show off her skill with classics like 'you've never had Eggs Benedict' before, and was willing to give us a taste of Panamanian specialties as well. We really didn't have enough time in the day to fit in lunch after one of her extravagant breakfasts, although we really tried.
The rest of the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, arranged special trips for us, and generally provided everything we needed to keep the family relaxed and enjoying our trip.
Amongst the surfing, snorkeling, zip lining (definitely a highlight), fabulous restaurants, ATVing, turtle nesting, swimming, and did I mention the AMAZING food?, everyone definitely got to do their favorite thing. Another highlight of the trip was the tour of the Botanical Gardens next door at La Finca de los Monos.
We can't wait to go back!
The rooms upstairs enjoy the view and cool breezes. Downstairs was convenient for the kids.
