Bocas del Toro: Zapatilla Island & Coral Cay Tour

Ready for a day in paradise? We'll pick you up from your hotel on Isla Colón at 9:30 am and head to the Bocas Marine Pier, where a boat will be waiting to take us to two of the natural gems of the Bocas del Toro archipelago: the Zapatilla Islands and Cayo Coral.

We'll sail across the sparkling emerald waters off the Panama coast, passing through an area known as Dolphin Bay. Keep your eyes peeled for these incredible friendly marine creatures! If we're lucky, we may get to see the numerous dolphins that inhabit this area of the Caribbean as they play alongside our boat.

Our boat trip will bring us to Cayos Zapatillas, where we'll disembark on one of the islands' spectacular white sand beaches. You'll then have an hour of free time to take a refreshing dip in its crystal clear waters or head inland to explore the tropical jungle that covers the island.

The tour will then continue onwards to Cayo Coral, a postcard-perfect island where you'll be captivated by the characteristic thatched roof cabins and the wooden docks connecting people's homes.

Finally, we'll have the opportunity to see one of the most emblematic animals of this area of the world: sloths! They live in the treetops of Coral Cay, so make sure to watch the leaves above your head and you'll hopefully catch a glimpse of the slow-moving creatures.

At the end of an unforgettable tour filled with paradise islands and incredible wildlife, we'll return to hotels on Isla Colón for around 3:30 pm.

Hotel pick up

This excursion includes pick up from hotels located on Isla Colón. If you're staying on one of the other islands in Bocas del Toro, you'll have to make your own way to Bocas Marine Pier at 9:30 am.
