Why Angie Cottrell chose Panama

We built this property on one of the nicest beaches in Bocas for the enjoyment of our guests. This property was finished and opened in late December of 2011.

What makes this villa unique

This is one of the only beachfront properties in all the archipelago of islands in Bocas! You are literally 20 steps from the Caribbean Sea on a soft sand beach. You can enjoy a swim in the warm waters of the sea and then return to take a dip in the refreshing waters of the pool! We are close to town for convenience yet far enough away for relaxation!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is flawless with every detail thought about. Each member of their wonderful family has been so polite and welcoming. We took a boat tour with their son, Wes, and he didn't disappoint. I would highly recommending staying at their property and taking a day boat trip with Wes for the perfect vacation.

Owner's Response: A Private Boat tour with Wes is a one of a kind experience! He knows the waters like the back of his hand and will take you to see some of the most exquisite places: Exotic reefs to snorkel, hidden beaches, the Zapitalla National Park, Dolphins Bay, see white face monkeys and sloths, and much more! We are happy your family enjoyed Villa Paraíso and the Archipelago of Bocas!

Beautiful accommodation, tastefully decorated, with everything needed for a comfortable stay. What you get is exactly what you see in the pictures on the website. The place was spotlessly clean and has been maintained to still look like brand new. We loved having our own private pool all to ourselves with our own section of beach just a few steps off the pool deck. The water was perfect for swimming. We also enjoyed taking the bikes provided for a ride into town. Wes took us on a private tour and showed us some nice snorkel spots. The best spot was just off the Zapatilla's. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will be back!

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay! Villa Paraiso has something SPECIAL that NO other place in Bocas has to offer, right on the beach, not just over the water, and your own private pool! For a day of adventure a private boat tour by Wes right from the Villas dock makes for the BEST vacation ever!

After staying in this amazing villa, I truly couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Bocas del Toro. The pool was incredible, especially for my little ones who weren't always comfortable with swimming in the ocean. The family's generosity was appreciated: letting us use the kayaks, bikes and the delicious brownies they baked for us. The accommodations were clean, more than comfortable and well appointed. Thoughtful. A really nice place to stay. Thank you!!!!

Owner's Response: We work hard to make sure our guests have an unforgettable vacation! We have added details that other places, with much less to offer, charge extra for. We include the complimentary use of bikes, kayaks, snorkel equipment, pool toys. Complimentary cold drinks and snacks are also waiting in the rooms when you check in. On top of that the private pool, beach, and boat tours! Why rent anywhere else?

Amazing once again!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our 4th stay at Villa Paraiso!!! As always it was a wonderful time! We shared the Casitas with friends of ours. It's the perfect place to relax close to the conveniences of your room,and yet be only steps away from a beautiful beach. We all enjoyed the pool, kayaks, bikes, and rooms. This time we especially enjoyed the grill and outdoor kitchen. We had fabulous meals every night and did not have to go into town to eat. As always the Cottrell family was amazing they are beyond helpful and accommodating! We really really really enjoyed our first tour with Wes Cottrell!!! We have taken several tours with other guides on previous trips. This was by far the best tour we have ever taken. Unless you're taking a tour just to go out and get drunk with a bunch of other people including the tour guide, don't look anywhere else. Let him know the kind of things that you enjoy and he can custom make a tour that you will love. Bocas has lots and lots of amazing things to see. Our personal favorite is snorkeling. We are not necessarily bird people, but Bird Island is a must see. We also love Star Fish Bay and it's not a far boat or taxi ride.

Accommodations were amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for two couples. We each had our separate unit for privacy but a common place to gather around the pool and BBQ area as well. Clean and well maintained. Laundry service available for a minimal fee. Not too far from town and walk-able beaches. We enjoyed an amazing day on the boat with Wesley, snorkeled, ate amazing food and visited sloth island. Definitely recommend this place!
