Isla Colon

Isla Colon is the most populated island in the Bocas Del Toro archipelago, and home to some of the area’s top destinations for ecological wonder and beach travel. Isla Colon is also where you’ll find the main city and hub of the province: Bocas Town. If you decide to stay on another island in Bocas, you’ll want to come back to this area for ATMs and access to groceries stores.

In Isla Colon you can find Playa Estrella, also known as “Starfish Beach,” a protected eco-tourism destination, where you can also experience the area’s Afro-Caribbean culture and food. (Just remember not to touch the starfish, please.). Next, head to Playa Bluff, for world-class surfing and a chance to learn about the local sea turtle conservation efforts. On the way to Playa Bluff it’s common to stop at Paki Point, a laid-back beach where you can grab a beer. You may also want to visit Playa Tortuga, a beach resort with the largest ocean front pool in the area, or the picture-perfect beaches of Boca del Drago.
