My wife and I stayed at Villa Paraiso for 8 nights. This is by far the best place to stay in Bocas. The location is perfect - on the beach, quiet and only a 5 minute taxi ride to town which cost $1.50/person. You will not find a nicer lodging option in Bocas and the Cottrell family are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The house also comes with several complimentary perks like bicycles, snorkel gear, kayaks, and more. We highly recommend you rent a 4 wheeler from Flying Pirates (they have an exclusive to 1500 acres of jungle). We paid $200 for a 5 day rental and had a chance to see parts of the island you cannot see otherwise. Plenty of excellent dining options - be sure to check out the recommendations on TripAdvisor as that was our guide and you can't go wrong. Highly recommend!
