Upon arrival, Mr. Parvez, the proprietor, welcomed us at the airport with transportation. I am not sure what was more wonderful, the island, or Mr. Parvez. Bocas has an abundance of things to do and as a mixed age group we were able to see many sights during our 5 day stay. Try to see the islands, starfish beach, red frog beach, or just take a walk or bicycle ride. Do not let these accommodations pass you by because it states 'out of the town'. You very much want to stay out of town unless you are 21 or younger! The cab ride to town is fifty cents, no bickering, 100's of taxi's on the island (skip renting a car-it's rare to see private vehicles). This condo is across the road and overlooking the ocean, the surf sounds apparent, impeccable cleanliness, modern, full kitchen, friendly staff, balcony, very convenient to the best restaurant in town. Do not pass up the chance to ask Mr. Parvez over for a snack or evening cocktail, he is a wealth of information about the island, has suggestions for touring, and can arrange boat rides, etc. And what a sense of humor! Highly recommend these accommodations for your stay-don't miss Bocas del Toro. (The only reason sleep quality was not rated a 5 is due to a roof being installed behind the condo's, early morning hammer pounding until is was done.)
