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.

Now with Selina Surf Club Red Frog in the mix, this setting seems even more surreal than ever!. Stay in our dormitories, standard, private, unique or deluxe rooms to have a new lodging experience, and try local and global delicacies at our bar and restaurant, or cook the catch of the day yourself in our common kitchen. You don´t need anything else!
