    The couple running the place are very welcoming and gave us great advise. Just a short ride to Bocas town with taxis going by quite often. Loved the breakfast with fresh fruit and wondeful garden. One of the best place on Isla Colon.

    We had a fantastic stay at Sand Dollar. We stayed 2 nights on a business/ fun trip in Bocas. The owner Sharon was very accommodating on a last minute booking. The caretakers Roger, Lorraine, Dama, and Guillermo were fantastic! Definitely recommend!
