“THE BEST IN PANAMA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Just got back from another trip down to Bocas, my first staying at Red Frogs. I have been traveling to Bocas del Toro for over 7 years now and Red Frogs is hands down the best experience and operation going on down there! Scott and his whole team go to all lengths to provide you with the best food, guides, local experiences and time that you can ever imagine for a surf trip!

If you are looking for an increadibly unique experience and the possibility of some of the greatest surf in the Caribean, then Red Frog should be a must on your list. The accomondations are super cool hand crafted bungalows from Bali totally off the grid solar powered with peacefull outdoor showers and plenty of room for post surf session hanging out. The garderns are literally out of this world, and clearly lovingly maintaned. The Real shining stars of Red Frog are Scott and his great crew of guides and staff. The cook BoBo does a great job of keeping everyone well fed and Matt and TO not only will put you on the best waves but are just great guys and fun to surf with. I would highly recomend spending a week or two at Red Frog. The combination of the incredible island of Bocas Del Toro, the jungle, the Caribean and the great staff at Red Frog will make it hard to leave and will having you scanning airfares trying to get back. Thanks for an awesome week.

Scott and his team at Red Frog make this place such a pleasure to visit, and we were lucky enough to meet a lot of other lovely travelers staying there as well. Every aspect of service was top notch and the food was wonderful. The combination made for great morning surf trips and a few fun nights in town. The location is a picturesque Panama jungle setting steps away from a beautiful beach. Although it is a boat ride away from town, the beauty of the Island and setting is worth it. I would suggest it's the nicest location to stay in the area, a bit away from the hustle and bustle of town, but close enough to visit if you want. We stayed in one of the two Bungalows and were very comfortable, appreciating the eco-friendly set-up and warm, out door shower. Bottom line - Scott and his team will do everything they can to make it a great experience for you.

Just got home from another awesome surf vacation to Bocas Del Toro and once again Red Frog Bungalows exceeded my expectations. The staff treat you like family, the location is heavenly and the food is delicious. We surfed every day with our surf guides who always had us at the right place at the right time. Staying at the Red Frog Bungalows is the best decision you can make when traveling to Bocas. I hope to get back there asap!

A big thanks to Scott and his staff at the Red Frog Bungalow Resort for providing us with such wonderful memories. Your customer service is outstanding, "Scott". The meals were excellent but we felt you fed us too good.........lol. (Great meals, great lodging)
We will be back again, we will recommend your resort to all our friends travelling your way.

Red Frog Bungalows is by the best place to stay in the Bocas. Scott and his crew have the whole area dialed from the best surf to the best food. If your going to the Bocas there is no better way to do it. With access to your own speed boats and taxi's, your able to find the best waves with the least amount of crowds. Not to mention the beautiful little island red frog is located on is the hot spot for the afternoon tourist girls..if your into that kind of stuff of course. Thanks Scott for everything!

Loved listening to the ocean, birds and wind during the day and at night. The bungalows are set slightly off the beach with a sandy walk way to the beach. The gardens are immaculate and serene. We stayed in the tentalow and were very happy- its quite large, clean and comfortable.
