“Escape from Snow to Sunny Bocas del Toro”
Reviewed February 1, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We stayed at Villa Paraiso in late Dec. 2014 for seven nights and enjoyed the warm hospitality of the Cotrell family and their lovely home on the beach. Every day, we rode the bikes provided to Bocas (short ride), swam in the ocean, and took advantage of the laid-back vibe of the area.

If you are looking for a vacation home very close to a nightlife setting - then this is not the place for you. But, if you are looking for a comfortable vacation home on the beach and seeking solitude and nature, then this might be the place for you. The Cotrell family is very welcoming and helpful with advice, logistics, planning sightseeing adventures.

“Perfect for our honeymoon!”
Reviewed December 15, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Villa Paraiso is a true gem. Our villa was immaculate and had a private lanai and pool that was perfect for daytime relaxing and nighttime dining. Being able to walk from our property to the ocean truly exemplifies how special this place is, and being a short bike ride from Bocas Town was great. The owners were perfect hosts, and made food that could rival nearly any restaurant on Isla Colon. There is not a single thing I would change about our experience there. We can't wait to come back to Bocas!!

“A honeymoon in paradise!”
Reviewed October 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We booked Las Casitas at Villa Paraiso for our honeymoon and it did not disappoint! It's such a beautiful place. The grounds are beautiful. The Villas themselves are not only safe and well built, but comfortable with loads of little touches that only an owner that cares about their property would think to add.

We spent a lot of time just relaxing by the pool and on the beach, which was heavenly. Everyday, after whatever adventure we had, Las Casitas was like coming home. And the distance between your front door and the water - 25 feet. The pictures don't lie.

We took a boat tour to see Dolphin Bay, snorkel at Coral Cay and relax on Isla Zapatillas. Las Casitas is perfectly positioned between Bocas town and Bluff Beach and Pakis Point. You get both convenience and quiet.

The Cottrell Family went above and beyond to make sure our trip was memorable, from a delicious candlelit dinner on the dock, to home cooked breakfast every morning, and great advice about things to see and do. We absolutely loved our time in this little slice of paradise! Wonderful wonderful wonderful.

Stop looking. Travelers, you found your perfect spot.

“Perfect place to be near town but not too close!”
Reviewed August 26, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved staying at Villa Paraiso Villa Wiona for a week. We rented an ATV from Flying Pirates and visited the beaches, the jungle and the town many times.

The Cottrell family were absolute perfect hosts, being available when needed, we had a delicious breakfast and dinner prepared by Wesley. It was wonderful to have the use of a local phone to call for cabs or other services.

I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Bocas Del Toro to visit the area.

“Little paradise in Bocas del Toro”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very nice accommodation on the main island of Bocas del Toro archipelago. Nice spacious room in a beautiful villa with private pool. Only few steps from the beach (not the nicest beach because the river floating in a few meters further but you have enough other beaches in the area - and off course the pool!). The villa is located a bit outside town, which we liked. With the bikes you can easily get to town. A must is a bike ride to Playa Bluff. Drive all the way to the end of the road and you will find the nicest beach bar! Your effort will be rewarded! I would definitely recommend to stay here! The owners and their suns are also very nice!
