ISLA CARENERO

ISLA CARENERO

This is the closest island to Bocas Town. Just a few minutes by boat from the mainland, Isla Carenero is easy to reach and relatively small. You can walk the entire coast in about an hour. Most of the hotels are on the beach or held above the water using a system of stilts. You will find several restaurants serving seafood specialties- a truly unique experience to dine right on the water! There are many activities that can be done during a visit to Isla Carenero – the best waves for beginners surfing are here, along with one of the best overall waves in the region of Bocas del Toro. The Point of Carenero is one of the longest lefts in Bocas del Toro and forms perfect tubes when conditions are ideal. Participating in Stand Up Paddle (SUP) is an unforgettable option to see the coral reefs around Carenero.
