El Barco Hundido isn’t just a bar. It’s an adult wonderland surrounding a sunken boat, hence—The Wreck Deck. Bartenders are incredibly helpful and attentive. Presume any white powder in the restroom is Comet.

Plays tropical and mainstream music, but drinks can be expensive. Although for the info of the ladies, many nights are ladies nights haha. There are also dancing classes during the day. It is a must do if you go to Bocas.

We were in Bocas during the week, since we'd decided to spend our weekends in the City. Because of that, there was not much going on around the town and the few places we found were such a snooze. When we asked around what was...More
