Things To Do / About Bocas

When you’re ready to heave yourself up out of your hammock Bocas has lots of cool places to go and things to do.  If you dig the water, Bocas has plenty of options for beaching, swimming, snorkeling, diving and sight-seeing.  Take a hike in the jungle where you have a good chance of spotting a monkey, or ask about the Bat Cave Tour—definitely for the truly adventurous!  If you’re more interested in “indoor sports,” there are drink specials to be found at a different bar or club with music and dancing every night.  There’s always a party to be found in Bocas!
