Bocas Paradise Hotel is one of the newer ocean-front hotels in Bocas Town on Isla Colón in Bocas del Toro. It is a neat, clean and cosy colonial-style building that's perched over the transparent waters of the Caribbean, right in the center of this vibrant little town.
The Bocas Paradise restaurant is excellent. Modestly called a "cafe", seating overlooks the water out on the terrace where one can come or go by water taxi, as is customary here. Even if the walk is a few blocks, many residents and tourists alike opt to take the water route between destinations. The menu at the cafe is small, but rest assured that any choice is bursting with freshness and created with care

We are Elena and Daniele, a young Italian couple, and we’ve decided to move to Panama after travelling extensively around this wonderful Country for a new, exciting adventure. We are now the proud managers of CABANAS TURISTICA ESTEFANY, a seafront hostel next to the famous Playa Estrella in the Bocas del Toro archipelago.
Our hostel is one of the few hotels in Isla Colon that is actually right on the beach – one of the reasons Lonely Planet recommends it! – it is also the only accommodation and restaurant in Boca del Drago.
Cabanas Turistica Estefany is a delightful place unfolding around a large patio for the guests to relax in, it has private rooms with bathrooms, dorms with shared facilities and two small Caribbean style wooden houses, all fitted with ceiling fans and mosquito nets on doors, windows and beds.
Our friendly restaurant offers creative Italian and Mediterranean food. Enjoy breathtaking views and sunsets while sipping a drink and tasting our specials; listen to relaxing music and take in the sounds and perfumes of the Tropics. Wi-fi connection for your tablet is free – you’re welcome!
Nature in its variety is the fundamental reason the Institute for Tropical Conservation & Ecology periodically lodges here.
During Carnival time the Fiesta in Isla Colon generates a unique atmosphere all of its own.
If you want to dedicate time to mind-body well-being, Elena is available for Pilates sessions or muscle awakening on the seafron
