SELINA SURF CLUB ISLA COLON
Reviews (5)
5 out of 5

Colorful, Caribbean Bocas del Toro has always been legendary. Made famous by Afro to Caribbeans who arrived to work on nearby banana plantations, Bocas Town has evolved into a multicultural mecca. Dreamy, surreal and seductive, Bocas Town will capture your heart with its coconut groves and blue to green water. Slow down and soak up the Caribbean vibes: islands, reefs and beaches may draw you in, but it’s the energy that will make you want to linger.

Location

Selina Bocas del Toro is at the epicenter of Isla Colon in the heart of Bocas Town. Try local and global delicacies at our bar and restaurant, or cook the catch of the day yourself in our common kitchen. Stay in our dormitories, standard, private, unique or deluxe rooms.

Demasiado divertido hospedarse en este hostel. Hay bar sobre el mar. Balcones con vistas increíbles y habitaciones cómodas. Hicimos paddle surf con Hernan Cortez, un genio!! Lo recomiendo probarlo una mañana tranquila.

Buen ambiente
Después de la buena experiencia en Selina Playa Venao, decidimos probar en Selina Bocas por el ambiente y la filosofia del Selina. No defraudó teniendo en cuenta la diferencia de un sitio a otro. Ambiente joven, disfrute y pasarlo bien!

La verdad que muy bien tanto el viaje que vas en lancha,como el personal super amable, las habitaciones que estan bien,las instalaciones que tienes de todo, las vistas que son una pasada porque esta encima del mar donde te puedes dar un chapuzon y ademas si quieres diversion ese es tu hostel!!
