A colorful town made of wooden houses built in the early 20th century.

Isla Colon is the largest and most developed island of the archipelago. It is home to the provincial capital of Bocas del Toro, a colorful town made of wooden houses built in the early 20th century. Isla Colon serves as a convenient hub for exploring the archipelago as water taxis can bring you away to remote beaches and magnificent snorkeling sites. The appeal of Bocas is basically slowing down and soaking up the Caribbean vibes. The island offers a friendly and laid back atmosphere which invites you to stay and feel at home. Even though the charming Isla Colon is in the middle of a major development boom, it still preserves its original Caribbean flair. Hotels, restaurants and condos are springing up around the island.
