Wednesdays and Saturdays is ladies night 10:30 to 11. Girls, hop in a water taxi to enjoy some strong mixed drinks. Great place to dance all night, definitely more of a travelers spot than a locals one. Also feel free to strip down and hop into the ocean, everyone else does. Didn't actually stay in the hotel, but I'm sure... More

An awesome party on a wednesday specially. The place has a pool on outside patio. Located in incredible isla carnero. Great music, great times! Absolutely worth the water taxi from a different island to attend.

Stayed here for 4 nights in june, the hostel has a trampoline and swings into the sea which was so cool. The staff were so lovely and friendly to everyone. We stayed in a private room with a really powerful fan so it kept the room bareable to sleep in! We were so sad to leave it is one of... More

This hostel is above the water on isla carenero. The staff were so great. Within 5 minutes of being there they were offering to take us to a nearby beach and show us around the island. The hostel itself had a great restaurant and drinks. Each night had something going on (beer pong tournament, ladies night, happy hour, etc) with... More

The staff was really friendly and welcoming. They had a great playlist for every mood of the day, and it added a great soundtrack to our trip. The natural, ocean pool area was awesome, boasting a trampoline, dive platform, swings, and a rope swing. We loved it. There was really great, homemade, fresh food to eat at the cafe, and... More

Def the place to go if you are up for fun, meeting other travellers and getting wet. Decent snacks and reasonably priced drinks. Lots of games (beer pong, etc) and other things to keep you entertained. They also organise tours, transport and is next to the dock for transport back to Boca Town/Colon.

This bar is awesome (Not sure about the sleeping arrangements because we didn't stay here - instead stay at Salinas). If you're looking to party hard, and get wet (if you want) this is the place. It's truly a unique bar and you have to check it out if you are looking to party. On it's designated nights, it's packed... More

The hostel is right on the water. Water taxis are super easy to get. Food is good and well priced. But hands down the best part is the trampoline, swings and high dive platforms. The water playground is open 24/7 even during the craziest parties. People jump until they just can't jump anymore.

This place is really nice if you're looking for some relaxed partying and actually don't want to sleep a lot. Beds are uncomfortable, it's really hot in the dormitory and the ventilator makes more noises than the partying. Price is good and breakfast included (pancakes and toast with marmelade and coffee/tea)

My friend and I had an amazing time at Aqua Lounge! The hostel itself is beautiful, located right on the water, and has swings and a trampoline to get into the pool. It was a really social hostel with a really good vibe - there were always people in the hammocks in the common area or in the pool. We... More
