We decided to travel to Bocas Del Toro to celebrate the new year without a crowd or big party, just a quiet serene tropical setting, and found it exactly at the Buccaneer Resort. This small group of buildings on Carenero Island, anchored by the fantastic BiBi's restaurant on the beach, was everything we were looking for, the quiet beach with walking distance to an awesome surf spot and easy access to water taxis to Bocas town. You can hear the surf from your bed, see the waves from your window or balcony, and walk a few steps and take a dip in the Caribbean. Although it is not a 5-star accommodation, what more could you really ask from island life? We will certainly plan to return and visit Elizabeth at the Buccaneer again on our next visit to Bocas Del Toro. The Bocas Beach Club was just opening on new year eve, hopefully that will become another popular waterfront hot spot on Carenero Island. Elizabeth also mentioned that our neighbor in the unit above the office was planning to open a pizza place too!! What another great addition it would be to the Buccaneer and the coastline of Carenero Island!
