Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro: Our family has always loved the tropics. We would travel the Caribbean to escape the cold Wisconsin winters. Stumbling across Bocas Del Toro, Panama, we fell in love with this Archipelago of islands. Crystal clear, calm waters on the inside of the islands make it great for snorkeling, kayaking and water sports. Waves on the outside make it a world class surf spot. The beautiful, warm friendly people enticed us to make this place our home. We found this unique piece of beachfront land with a warm, soft, sand beach in front and palm trees reaching for the sun. Without barely thinking we bought it and constructed own beautiful Villa.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It is peaceful and quiet filled with the sounds of nature. We are nestled in a tropical garden that is fringed with coconut filled palm trees, and tropical fruits and flowers. The views of the ocean are breathtaking at all times of the year. Star filled nights or a full moon shining across the ocean and lighting the pool for a night swim make this place a unique vacation spot. Each day will await you with a new adventure. Tours to the Zapatilla National park, Dolphins Bay, Red Frog Beach or Bird Island to name only a few. Walk to the nearby Botanical Gardens or bike to the Caves. Explore the ocean in front of the Villa using the house kayaks or surf at some world class surf spots only 5 minutes from your door. Snorkel or dive some of the most beautiful reefs in the Caribbean sea or take a boat trip to the outer waters for some deep sea fishing. This will truly be a vacation that you will not find anywhere else.
We enjoy the sun, ocean, beach and all the activities that go with it. So, we decided to trade in dreary winters for a life on the beach. We love waking up to the quiet sounds of the jungle, the monkeys, parrots and birds of the tropics and going to sleep to the relaxing sound of the waves lapping on the beach . We also enjoy people from all over the world, and the blend of cultures in the islands makes this a wonderful experience. All these things have shared in bringing our family to Bocas Del Toro, Panama and to make it our home. We are looking forward to sharing the dream with you!

This property is located directly on beach! The soft sand bottom, with no ripes or currents makes it a great place to enjoy the Caribbean Sea!
Angie & Steve:Thanks for the wonderful 2 weeks in your lovely home. We had some apprehensions before we arrived as this was our first time booking a vacation without going through a travel agent but from the first email we received from Angie we knew we’d be in good hands. Not only did your home exceed our expectations but your family made our vacation a very, pleasant and memorable one. We’ll definitely put Villa Paraiso down in our places to return to! Angela & Dave TuckerToronto, Canada
We are so glad that we found Villa Paraiso to stay at in Bocas Del Toro! The setting is the best in Bocas, the food was such a treat (thanks Wes and Angie), we had all the comforts of home and more! Talk about being pampered... with the beach so close - right out front- and the option to dive into our own very clean pool whenever we wanted to- so private! We felt safe at all times.
We rented an ATV from the Pirates down the road for a week. That gave us the mobility to travel wherever and whenever we wanted to. Taxis were also an option that was easily arranged. We road all over the Island and rain or shine- we had a great time!
The other must do is to hire a boat for a day- or two - in order to see the other Islands. We chose to hire a fellow named Capt Scott( highly recommend) who took us all around the islands for a day. We saw and learned a lot about the area. We even were able to purchase fresh live crab and lobster from a fisherman that we barbequed and enjoyed back at the Villa.
We will be telling everyone we know back at home about Villa Paraiso, and Bocas del Toro!
Thanks so much Cottrells! Your hospitality goes beyond expectations! We are sure to come back one day...
From the moment we arrived it was obvious Villa Parasio was the perfect place for us. The suite in the main house is tastefully decorated, fully equipped and extremely clean and well maintained. The covered veranda, with comfortable furnishings, is the perfect place to relax while enjoying views of the pool, beach and turquoise water beyond. We enjoyed the beautiful and refreshing pool every day and evening! The grounds and gardens are maintained as an exquisite estate and the beautiful beach is literally just steps away.
Steve gave us a thorough introduction to the Villa, answered all of our questions and made some great recommendations. Throughout our stay Angie made sure we had everything we needed. Villa Paraiso is a family affair with their three sons (Connor, Wes and Riese) involved in making their guests' stay a memorable one and we enjoyed learning about their Bocas experience. We enjoyed the cooking of Chef Wes for several breakfasts and a wonderful dinner all served on the veranda. They are there if you need them but respect your privacy otherwise.
The Villa is in a perfect and very private location. All of the activities and nightlife of Bocas Town are just a short drive away. It serves as a great base to explore Isla Colon and all of the surrounding Islands.
Villa Paraiso and the Cottrell family made our trip a great one! We highly recommend!
Wow. Just so amazing. We had the best time. We did all the great adventure trips and felt home in this lovely house. Everyday we played a little ping pong and swam in the beautiful pool. The Owners Boy's were really helpful and kind!
It was absolute paradise! Thanks a lot for this!
ps. for everyone who thinks colon is just a party island - in Villa Paraiso you don't feel any of the town's nightlife just if you want, you can take a little bike ride into town, which is really refreshing and have a drink or two or three :-)
The property is beautiful and the managers (owners) are very sweet. We actually were there when it rained the whole time... so we didn't get to use the kayaks or enjoy the pool.. but we still had a great time!! The bikes made our trip!! So fun - great place to stay. It's away from the 'party' in town but close enough to enjoy the town.
We really enjoyed our stay here at Viia Paraíso. Excellent location, not too far from town but not too close. We enjoyed the privacy both location offers. The rooms are very clean and are in excellent condition. Makes visiting Bocas a more enjoyable place.The family that runs the place are great hosts.
We had an amazing time at Villa Paraiso it was the perfect getaway, a hidden gem in Bocas! We are grateful we had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful place!
Each day will await you with a new adventure. You can use the house bikes to explore the island or enjoy the underwater beauty of the Archipelago of islands by snorkeling. Try riding the waves at Red Frog! Besides that, try kayaking, caving, diving, fishing and boat tours to the many islands. Visit the Botanical and Butterfly Gardens, or experience the World class surfing only a 5 minute walk away. This will truly be a vacation that you will not find anywhere else while you stay in a luxurious setting.
