After crossing the border over the famous bridge of Sixaola river your guide will drive you to Almirante town where you are going to take a boat for 30 minutes that will bring you directly to Isla Colon.

Enjoy all the natural beauties that Bocas del Toro islands offers

You will start your activities with Bocatorito Bay, also known as Dolphin Bay, has several optimal conditions for the dolphins. For its shallow depth and the protection afforded by the surrounding mangroves, its waters are shallow and translucent fish-stalking-easing. At Dolphin Bay you will have the chance to observe dolphins in their natural environment.

Then you'll head to Cayo Coral where you can discover the underwater world on a snorkeling adventure.

Finally you will visit the Red Frog Beach Reserve on Isla Bastimientos.
