“Comfortable and convenient but noisy at night.”
Reviewed February 17, 2011

The apartments are conveniently located on Isla Carenero, directly across the water from bocas town water taxi dock. Only costs $1 to taxi across to Bocas. It was a very comfortable clean apartment with A/C, and comfortable beds. We did some cooking but the cooking pans and utensils were very limited, pans totally scratched up. Locals are constantly walking the path in front of the building but there are bars on all windows and doors, so it is secure. High speed internet was down most of the time, had to use Casa Acuario's internet next door. We enjoyed being able to walk to Bibi's restaurant (awesome food!) and a small beach about 15 minutes walk away. The down side to this apartment is the location. It's on the edge of the local village which is very dirty, trash on thenground everywhere and smelled like sewer. You can hear the booming music from Bocas town sometimes all night. I would stay on this island again but further down the beach away from the noisy village and noisy Bocas town. This is not a good location for sleep.
