For my third visit to Casa Cayuco I believed I knew what to expect: clear water, beautiful scenery, genuine people, and delicious food. Although I found all of those things to be true, my expectations were still exceeded! I traveled with a group of 10 friends and had one of the best vacations of my life. We visited the nearby...

We spent four nights at Casa Cayuco and it was definitely what we needed to relax after a long trip from Europe. We took a flight from Panama City to Bocas Del Toro where Dave (owner of the place) picked us up. We were helped into a motor boat that at over 25 knots took us through the mangroves to... More

Our stay at Casa Cayuco exceeded all expectations. Dave and Suzanne, and their lovely little girl, have created the ultimate paradise. From the clean and comfy cabinas to the delicious and healthy food, all was perfect. Dave's knowledge of the area and attention to detail and Suzanne's grace and kindness made us feel right at home. Dreaming of our next... More

If you want to spend time on a beautiful beach, with friendly, down to earth owners and staff, in a setting that is natural and serene with several local attractions available, than this is the place for you! This is a luxury rustic eco resort at it's finest!! Your hosts David and Suzanne (and baby Mina!) have nailed it when... More

Upon enthusiastic recommendations, we managed to secure a booking a little bit last minute when we were in Bocas Town. David was very reactive on emails and came to pick us up by boat. The place is the stuff made for honeymooners and adventurous kids. The cabins are far enough away from each others that it still feels private, they... More

My husband and I spent a week at Casa Cayuco in March and we are still talking about it months later. The food was excellent and the day trips were amazing! We have snorkeled at numerous places around the world and this was one of our favorite snorkeling spots, if not THE favorite! Dave and Suzanne's friendly ways, kindness and... More

We just left Casa Cayuco and I am already working on planning our return trip. Our family of five (2 parents and 3 kids ages 10-15) had a wonderful week in this amazing place! Fabulous food, beautiful setting and welcoming hosts made for a perfect vacation. Also loved hearing about the work that Dave and Suzanne help organize in the... More

I'm not quite sure why it's taken me so long to write this review, but it's probably because I've been so relaxed since returning from Casa Cayuco. We traveled to Panama in mid to late May, and were thrilled for our last stop to be in Bocas del Toro. We looked at a slew of places to stay, but we... More

Our family of four (including 2 teenagers) just returned from a 4-night stay at Casa Cayuco and it was the perfect way to wrap up our first trip to Panama. Casa Cayuco is a hidden gem on a beautiful island that left an indelible imprint on all four of us. Dave and Suzanne are an amazing couple. The relaxed atmosphere,... More

Do you wonder what the Caribbean was like before all the mega resorts and chain hotels arrived? Would you prefer to snorkel with just yourselves vs. fighting with 10 other tour boats and their guests for a good view of the reef? Do you want to see how the indigenous people of Panama fish and catch your own dinner without... More
