If you want a nice rest and some peace as well as quiet while keeping an eye on your wallet, these rooms are the perfect option. Enjoy a comfortable full-sized bed with a shared shower. You'll get the full Selina treatment while having your own place to retire to in the evenings.

Unique room

Deluxe room

Location

Colorful, Caribbean Bocas del Toro has always been legendary. Made famous by Afro-Caribbeans who arrived to work on nearby banana plantations, Bocas Town has evolved into a multicultural mecca.

Dreamy, surreal, and seductive, Bocas Town will capture your heart with its coconut groves and blue-green water. Slow down and soak up the Caribbean vibes: islands, reefs, and beaches may draw you in but it is the energy that will make you want to linger.

Panama has some of the best surf breaks in all of Central America. Whether you like point breaks, beach breaks, hollow tubes, or long peelers, Panama has a variety of surf breaks to accommodate your style. Panama is still virgin and you can catch most of the best surf spots by yourself with your buddies. Few people know about Panama's surfing potential, which is a big plus for surfers who visit. However, you better go soon because Panama is becoming more and more popular for surfers from around the globe.

Bocas del Toro has been compared with some places in Indonesia, the bottom drop-off in its coast and the produce of powerful waves. From beginner to advanced, there is a wave for everyone along one of Panama's hundreds of beaches. Unpaved roads, boats to get from one island to another and hidden paradises have kept these magnificent beaches from becoming overcrowded and will have you feeling as though you are entering a secret paradise.

Bocas del Toro has become one of the top destinations of surf spots for surfers in search of the best waves in Panama. Beginners, intermediates, and advanced surfers alike can find a perfect breaking wave that caters to their level of experience.
