What to do at Sweet Bocas?

With the sound of the Caribbean Sea lapping underneath, days at Sweet Bocas are all about the water.

The list of activities to explore and enjoy the calm seas and its abundant sea life seems endless. Head out surfing with a world champion surf instructor, island hop on the private yacht or learn how to sail on one of the properties catamarans. Dive down to the coral reefs to encounter colourful fish and huge sponges or glide over the top on a kayak exploring the mangrove-lined bays.

Alternatively, spend your days discovering and learning about the islands’ culture, landscapes and wildlife. Hike through the lush rainforests spotting sloths and howler monkeys. Mountain bike across creeks to find swimming holes and untouched beaches or make traditional coconut bread in the family home of a local guide. 

For those looking to unwind and disconnect, take your days at a slower place. Lay on the overwater trampoline watching the fish swim. Spend lazy afternoons snoozing atop bean bags or indulge in a treatment at the spa.

Map & location

Off the Caribbean coast of Panama, Bocas del Toro consists of nine main islands, national parkland and thousands of tiny islets. Sweet Bocas stands above these turquoise waters next to its own private island. 

There are daily flights (50 mins) to Bocas International Airport (BOC) from Albrook Gelabert Airport in Panama City (PAC). Alternatively, Sweet Bocas can arrange a private charter between Panama City (PTY) and Bocas.

There’s also the opportunity to sail to Sweet Bocas and anchor your yacht on the property.

When to Travel

Bocas del Toro has a tropical climate with warm weather and light ocean breezes all year round.

While it’s possible to experience a little bit of rain throughout the year, there are two dry seasons. The first is between January and May, and the second during September and October. We recommend visiting during September and October as the islands are less busy. This is also the best time for scuba diving.

For those interested in surfing, the main season runs from late November to April but the waves are also good during June, July and August.
