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!
After a couple of days on Isla Colon, we decided to spend our last night on Isla Carnero. Dropped off on a dock a bit down the coast, we started to visit the some lodgings on that side of the island. After visiting several lodgings, we ended up here. The gentleman that helped us was very gracious and accommodating. He made arrangements for our group of four to be able to stay and helped us with everything we needed. The location is amazing because it has a great beach right in front and one more to the left. We did some great snorkeling with tons of fish in the coral. There is a restaurant right in front. As part of our nightly fee, we were given a voucher for breakfast. The restaurant was not only good but a great-looking place to hang out and watch the the sun setting and moon rising. The accommodations were very good and clean. There was also AC and hot water with incredible water pressure in it. Looking forward to coming back some day!

We had one night stay in one of the Buccaneer suites and found it quite fantastic. The location is unbelievable, you have the beach at you're doorstep and palms shading you while relaxing in your hammock on the deck. We would 100% recommend this spot for anyone looking for a private slice of paradise!
