Myself and my wife spent five nights at RFB and we didn't quite know what to expect before we arrived. What we found was a beach paradise that exceeded all of our expectations.
Scott, who runs the place, is a really good guy and totally focussed on making your stay a success. He has built an eco resort in landscaped tropical gardens with the perfect mix between comfort and relaxation where you instantly feel welcome and at home. There are two other bars on Red Frog Beach to get cold beers and cocktails (and Wi-Fi) and plenty of action in the waves, especially as surf lessons are available. There is so much to do in the Bocas that you will never be bored and Scott will help you organise whatever you want. Between us we had surf lessons, went snorkelling, paddle boarding, tuna fishing and visited the incredible Zaptilla islands on a boat trip that included swimming with Dolphins. Of course, we found plenty of time to laze on the beach where RFB customers get the benefit of loungers and umbrellas and you can keep hydrated by drinking fresh coconut water for $1 a coconut.
I could go on, but that would spoil the surprise. The beauty of this place is incredible and the laid back atmosphere will help you truly unwind whilst having a great time along the way.
Just the medicine and we can't wait to go back.
Scott and Claire
