Where We Are
GETTING TO BOCAS & ISLAND PLANTATION
Island Plantation, Bocas del Toro
FLY FROM PANAMA CITY
From Panama City’s smaller secondary Albrook Airport close to the city center, Air Panama has several daily non-stop flights right into our little airport in town. The flight duration is about 50 minutes and is by far the most convenient way to get to the Island. Airfares start at around $210 roundtrip.
During certain times of the year, flight schedules may change so make sure to check online at www.AirPanama.com
BY BUS FROM PANAMA CITY
Overnight buses are available from Panama City to Almirante . Tickets can be purchased at Albrook Bus Terminal and cost approximately $30.
You will arrive to Almirante between 6:00am and 7:30am. The first boat to Isla Colón departs at 6:00am and takes 30 minutes. Boats depart every 30 minutes until 6:00pm and costs about $5.
FROM SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA
You can also take a bus from San Jose to Sixaola, which is at the border, or you can take a bus to Changuinola, which is about a 45-minute drive from Almirante where you’d catch the water taxis for the 30-minute crossing over to the Island.
Transportation to Bluff BeachAt the local airport here in Bocas, a taxi can take you on the 20 minute drive via the dirt road out to Bluff Beach. Taxis between the town center and Bluff Beach cost $15 each way. We do not recommend renting a car as it is inconvenient and expensive to get the car onto the Island. Taxis are abundant on the Island and you can also rent many types of vehicles, including Golf Carts and ATV’s.
