its a good spot to stop. You place your order and come back. But the food is not that good for the price.

This review is of the restaurant, Restaurante Jazmin. We stopped here on a boat day tour to place an order then we spent some time on Isla Zapatilla 1 then came back to the restaurant to eat lunch. The restaurant is on a dock with just a covered eating area, some lounge chairs, a bar, and restrooms. There is lodging... More

This place is off the grid on the way to Zapatillas. We had a great lunch. Seafood was just plucked from the ocean fresh and chicken was also good. Best margaritas we had on our Bocas trip. You can eat on the deck right over the water and then you can snorkel around and look at all the fish in... More

There are 3 different areas if I understand correctly. We went to one right off the shore with a nice restaurant on stilts and some cool, large red birds. We got an overpriced juice but enjoyed the snorkeling here most out of all of Bocas, even though there of us got stung by small jellyfish. The other spot we went... More

Went on the way back from Zapatilla. The drinks were nice and cold, but I had much better food at other places in the area.

Went here as part of first day, in a day long tour of Dolphin bay, a beach visit, sloth sighting (did not see any) and snorkeling. We got to Crawl Cay as the last part of the trip, around 3 pm. The food was served in order of the boat you were on (We gave our orders earlier in the... More

It's a great cay, located away from the hustle of the more popular beaches. Do bring LOTS of sunscreen and water as there are NO facilities on the cay. A great paradise get away.

For the non-divers, this spot will provide you with plenty of aquatic life viewing. Bring plenty of sunscreen and some cash to purchase lunch at one of the local over the water restaurants. The seafood is still alive when you order...can't get fresher than that!
