Bocas Town, Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro Province
Casa Dolores is a Caribbean style wood house that sits high on stilts over Saigon Bay offering spectacular views of the sunset and the sound of water lapping underneath. Picture wooden boats and colorful houses on the sea.Fishermen and farmers coming to sell plantains and mangos in kayukos with the ever present chickens in the garden. I am an interior designer and have put a lot of artful touches in the renovation of this house. Its super cozy and charming, located in an off street local neighborhood but close enough to town center to walk and zero street noise. Dolores is a 2 block walk to the taxi/bus run outside of the big grocery that is open til' 10:30 pm. From here, taxis and shuttles to popular surf breaks, Starfish beach/Boca del Drago, bat caves, Playa Bluff, or just to town(collective taxis cost 60 cents or 1$ at night to to... Read more

About the neighborhood
I stayed at a rental in Saigon Adentro 6 years ago.This is where I fell in love with Bocas and dropped everything to move to Panama. This neighborhood is where I've been since.The neighborhood is mostly local families with some vacation rentals and a hotel and hostel. You can feel secure here because no one needs to come down our street unless they belong here and people respect that. Bocas is a safe place to walk around in general. You can let your kids play with the local kids outside of the house with no fear(if they can swim, of course! We are surrounded by water). Outside of safety talk, only a couple of blocks away there is a lovely swimming beach with local restaurants.I love Chikita Beach and Beso del Dragon restaurants.
Getting around
Everything is close in Bocas! In front of our big grocery(2blocks) that should provide all that you need food-wise, there is a station for taxis that run in either direction(town or out of town).Town is where you find boats to take you to neighboring islands,tours,restaurants,nightlife and shopping(60cents-1$or a 20 min stroll). Out of town you have Starfish Beach/Boca Del Drago and La Gruta bat caves (taxi 15-20$ or bus that runs every hour for 3$pp). To Bluff beach you can go to town to rent a bike, which is my preference because the road has occasional restaurants, deep jungle and sea views, the whole way and you can see monkeys,sloths,lizards and butterflies.There are taxis and a shuttle to take you there(shuttle 5$pp-taxi 15-20$ total)
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Bocas Del Toro Intnl: 0.6 mi
Ferry: Ferry: 0.6 mi
Get in a taxi or white bus from the airport or water taxi.Both are collective.Ask the driver to take you to Saigon Adentro Izquierda, al final. Cerca Hostel Barrbra. They will most likely put you at the 'T' in the road. From there you will walk a little block to where you see a red sport boat on land and a large pink house. Walk forward past the pink house and you will see a tall mint green house with a sign that says Casa Dolores on the porch. Mine is the short, butter yellow one in front. Expect to pay 2$pp from the airport. You don't need to tip for luggage, but feel free if you like. Otherwise, taxis to town cost 60 cents/1 dollar in the evening and are readily available close to the house.
