What to Expect

Small villages and beautiful tropical rainforest will be the scenery during your trip to Boca del Drago and Starfish Beach.  You will enjoy a brief road trip through Isla Colon and will be amazed by the beautiful beaches and interesting nature that you will find of the other side of Bocas. 


Tour Description

We will take you by land across Isla Colon to enjoy a day in the serene waters of Starfish Beach in Boca de Drago, a more secluded area of the island.

You will pass through small villages as you travel through the beautiful, lush tropical rainforest for which Bocas Del Toro is famous.  Once at Boca Del Drago we will go on a 25 minute walk along the palm-lined shore and right by amazing mangrove forests to enjoy a relaxing day in the turquoise waters of Starfish Beach. 

After a couple of hours swimming in the warm Caribbean Sea or enjoying freshly made fruit juices or a refreshing piña colada, we will go by boat for a visit to the famous Bird Island: a series of rocks close to shore where you may spot the rare red-billed tropicbird, an amazing looking bird that is found in only a few places in the world.

From here we’ll go back to Boca del Drago for a delicious Caribbean style lunch and a visit to the local artisans or one last dip in the water before heading back to downtown Isla Colon.

You will be back in your hotel at around 4:00 pm.
