Description de l’établissement

Palmar is the only beachfront hostel in the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Cruise across the bay from the main island on our free boat shuttle, which leaves three times a day from town, and arrive on Isla Bastimentos, home of the Bastimentos National Marine Park. From the dock, walk ten minutes across the island, through the jungle, to find Palmar situated directly on the famous Red Frog Beach. Stop by our reception desk to learn about all of our available tours. Take part in our free daily activities including coastline hikes to the national park, bonfires, hookah, bbq, outings to town, poker, and movie nights. If you're looking for adventure, let us book you a zipline, ATV, cave, or deep boarding tour. If you're looking for relaxation, treat yourself to a morning yoga class, and spend your day reading on one of our luxurious beach loungers. There is something for everyone.

Our restaurant and bar are fantastic, but there are other spots to check out within walking distance. If you're in the mood for something unique, let us book a special outing for you to one of our favorite spots.

The jungle is our home, and protecting it is very important to us. Palmar runs entirely on solar power, and all of our water is rain caught. Experience the magic of showering in fresh, filtered rainwater at natural temperature, free of any chemicals or additives. Take note of our high efficiency systems, minimal impact construction with local hardwoods, and recycling throughout the property.

The dorm cabins are located in the back of the property, tucked away under a canopy of rainforest. Each dorm bed has a semi-orthopedic mattress, high-quality linens, a personal window, fan, reading light, and accompanying locker.

**Please note: The Basic Double Room is actually a Tent**

General Info:

The Palmar Shuttle boat leaves three times daily from the dock at the Buena Vista Restaurant on the Main Street (next to Azul Paradise Hotel) at 10 am, 12 pm and 4 pm. If you arrive early, the restaurant is open daily with a selection of delicious food and beverages. The shuttle service is free for guests and limited spaces are offered on a first come, first served basis. If you need any help with your luggage, please make sure to arrive on one of these shuttles. If you cannot make it at these times, you can hire a water taxi from one of the public docks and ask to be taken to the Palmar Dock on Red Frog Beach ($8-10 per person).

    Really enjoyed my experience, the staff was always nice. Top 3 : Ryan, Cas and Jimmy! The only comment is about the music, I was expecting more local music than what I can hear home. Thanks for the great time!

    Très bel endroit au milieu de la jungle, très propre considérant le fait que tout le monde marche pieds nues dans le sable mais le ménage est fait tous les matins et les lieux sont très bien entretenus. Magnifique construction, magnifique plage. Nourriture est très cher mais comparé les prix de Bocas del Toro ce ne fait pas une grande différence le seul hic c'est qu'il n'y a pas vraiment d'autres options. Bonne ambiance.

    Les repas offerts au restaurant sur place sont corrects. Le personnel est sympathique en général. Les informations données par les gens qui y travaillent ne sont pas toujours à jour... ambiance correct. L'emplacement est parfait, la plage est superbe. Sécuritaire (locker et dorm verrouillés)

    Ressemble plus à un hôtel qu'à une auberge... Le prix des dortoirs est attractif, mais le fait qu'il n'y ait aucune cuisine, ni aucun supermarché près de l'auberge te "force" à acheter des plats à leur restaurant. Et ça fait très vite monter l'addition. Ce n'est pas notre genre d'auberge à nous (ressemble à du "all inclusive") : plage privative, cocktails, et fiesta, etc.. mais pour ceux qui aiment ce type d'ambiance festive et dorée, foncez! L'emplacement est joli et éloigné, la plage sublime.

    Aucuns acceuil à l'embarcadère lorsqu'on arrive de nuit ou de jours. Temps de marche 10minute. Les dortoirs : - si vous avez la chance d'avoir un lit en bas ça va. - si non vous dormez avec les toiles d'araignées, les araignées , les cocons de chenille, et autres bestioles . - les salles de bains communes et toilets ne sont jamais propre . - lorsque vous oublier quelque chose personne n'à rien retrouvé. - et vous demande de repayer soit disant vous n'avez pas payé.
