CARIBBEAN ISLAND TROPICAL ESCAPE

Bocas del Toro House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hola, amigos!

Casa Coco Loco is a vacation home in Bocas del Toro, Panama. It is a great alternative to a hotel or a resort, offering more privacy, space, and comfort than you will find at a resort or hotel. Traveling to Bocas del Toro, an island archipelago paradise for boating, diving, snorkeling, surfing, and much, much more is easy. One can fly from Panama City or San Jose, Costa Rica, arriving in Bocas in less than an hour from either city.

Casa Coco Loco is located on Isla Carenero, a small island in hurricane free, protected waters near open ocean just off the Panamanian coast in the Caribbean, and close to the Costa Rica border. We are three minutes away by water taxi from Isla Colon and the town of Bocas del Toro. Bocas del Toro is fast becoming known as a favorite vacation travel destination for its unspoiled natural beauty, pristine warm safe waters and wonderful people.

If you are considering traveling to Panama or Costa Rica, Bocas del Toro is an ideal location from which you can easily explore both. But once you settle into a hammock at Casa Coco Loco, you may never want to leave! So if you think you might prefer the comfort, space, privacy, and more reasonable rates of a vacation rental house near all the activities instead of a hotel in Bocas town or a remote resort, we invite you to take a look at Casa Coco Loco. There are very few homes of this quality for rent in Bocas del Toro, Panama. There are two bedrooms and two baths upstairs. The third bedroom downstairs has a separate entrance and an outdoor bath.

Unfortunately, the decks surrounding the house are not child-proof so it is not appropriate for very young children.

Please look at our user friendly website (see link below), It gives lots of information and pictures of our home and the exciting area of Bocas del Toro, Panama.

Bienvenido!

We are a retired doctor and psychotherapist. We live in the San Francisco Bay area and try to be in Bocas del Toro 2-4 months of the year.

Kai Frykman purchased this house in 2004

We love the tropics and looked in Mexico and Central America for a longtime. We fell in love on our first visit to Bocas. The friendly eclectic community, sunny days, amazing sunsets, easy use of the clean warm waters make it a unique location.

Sometimes referred to as 'the Venice of Central America', the Bocas archipelago is a water lover's dream There are roads only on one island (Colon, with the town of Bocas Del Toro), all other transportation is by cayuco (dugout canoes), pangas, water taxis, assorted outboards, and sailing vessels. Swimming, snorkeling, and diving in the warm clear waters is a joy. Casa Coco on Isla Carenero is unique, being so close to Bocas town with its wonderful restaurants and touring opportunities, but away from the crowds. For surfers, one of the best breaks is a 10 minute walk across the island.

Just a short note to let you know how wonderful our stay at
CCL was. It was our first introduction to Panama and a very memorable one. Your house is lovely. We used the kayaks often and did a lot of hiking around the Island. We tried paddle boarding, saw a sloth, collected beach glass at Hospital Point, ate fresh lobster, learned some spanish and partoook in the festival. Had a great day trip with captain Stoi to Coral Cayo where we snorkelled seeing the most beautiful coral ever.

Dear Rob & Kai,
Thank you SO much for the wonderful time we had at Casa Coco Loco. I was recently down there with two lifelong buddies on a surf trip and it was phenomenal. It was an easy 5 minute walk across the island to the point break, and water taxis were easy to grab from the dock for the other breaks. Post surf siestas in the hammock were as good as it gets.
The surf was good almost the whole time, and the two small days were full of adventure. Scooter rentals on the big island, an awesome hike over to Red Frog Beach, and beer fueled dart tournaments in one of the local watering holes.
The staff was great, the neighbors were wonderful, and the house was perfect.
I'm sure we will come back with the families.
Thanks again,
Nate.

3rd Time Around

Dear Rob and Kai,

As you know, this was my 3rd visit to Casa Coco Loco. Our most recent visit was another surf trip with two friends. Before that, a family trip with my wife and two kids. We absolutely love it there.

This last trip we found the new path to the point break which makes life so easy. A short walk and we are in the water. We surfed some new spots in the area, rented scooters for the day on Isla Colon and explored the coast roads over there, played a lot of games and logged some serious hammock time on the decks overlooking the water.

Thanks again for such a great trip and I am looking forward to the next.

Brandon

Dear Rob and Kai
I had an absolutely amazing time at Casa Coco Loco. The house itself is something out of a tropical dream, with huge balcolnies surrounding the entire raised-up platform where the main rooms are, views of the water from every room, hammocks to rock on, and your own private dock and yard with hundreds of coconut palms. It's quiet and relaxing, yet activities are just a short boat-ride away, and there's even a superb restaurant just a 5 minute walk down the beach. Jet off to go snorkeling, surfing, parasailing, fishing, or beach-hopping (even see where they filmed Survivor Allstars! Just a short boat trip away). There is easy access to the main island, where several supermarkets, restaurants, stores, and activity centers are. Casa Coco Loco had it all, and our time there was truly out-of-this-world. Looking forward to our next trip already!
