100% recommended: we will certainly be back!

  • 5 of 5

The property is in a beautiful, peaceful location right on the beach and a short taxi ride from Bocas Town. Pictures on the web barely do it justice.

The Casitas are immaculate and very well supplied. The outdoor kitchen allowed us to comfortably cater dinners for 5, and a sparkling salt water swimming pool provided hours of fun for our grandchildren.

The Cottrells proved to be delightful hosts, always ready to answer any questions and provide for our needs. They went above and beyond what one might typically expect, even surprising us with a home made cake one day!

I doubt you would find a better place to stay on Isla Colon.

What an amazing place! Stop your search here!

  • 5 of 5

This place is awesome! The gardens are beautiful. From the moment you walk through the gate, you are greeted by beauty. The casitas are solidly built and well decorated including everything you need from morning coffee to ice cube trays. The hosts have thought of everything from bikes, to an outdoor shower to footbaths at each entrance to keep the sand out of the living areas. The pool is prefect for a midday cool down or floating at night. The guidebook is extremely helpful with restaurants, things to see and even a local caterer that will deliver Panamanian dishes definitely take advantage of this!). Their son Wes offers boat tours to many locations including our favorite - sloth island where we got to see 3 of these amazing creatures. The outdoor kitchen works well for simple meal prep like breakfast and lunch. This is the place to stay in Bocas!!!

Having traveled extensively in the Caribbean let me just say this will be our destination for years to come! Angie and Steve have the most amazing place here. Their family will help you I. Every way you can imagine! We spent today with their son Wes on his boat! This guy is so amazing! His knowledge and kindness is beyond anything in our previous travels. When we got back Angie had freshhomemade brownies for us! This place has everything you need or want.

I could literally write write on and on!

As I sit here now I’m figuring out when we can get back here.

Owner's Response: We can't tell you how happy we are to hear that! We work hard at giving our guests exactly what they want, help if needed, and privacy if not. Wesley's private boat tours, on his boat, from the Villas dock, are definitely a must do Bocas Adventure! This is an experience you can't get anywhere else in the islands, only at Villa Paraíso!

One of the best placces I have stayed at

  • 5 of 5

This is an incredible place to stay. The pictures as shown are an accurate reflection of what you will get - right on the ocean, fabulous pool and very comfortable living quarters. It is ideal for 2 couples. Also, the unit does have access to Netflix and the owners are very helpful in making sure that you enjoy your stay there. It is within walking distance toa high end hotel or a really neat surfing pub (my favourite). It is also easy to reach the main town by either the communal taxis or on the bikes that are available for you. You will not be disappointed by this unit and, in fact, we have already rented again for next year.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that the BEST place in Bocas is beckoning you back! We are looking forward to seeing you guys in January! Villa Paraiso is in the perfect location on the island! You are close to town for convenience, unlike Bluff Beach that is an expensive taxi ride over a very rough beach road or being stuck at the mercy of a boat taxi on another island. We are just far enough away from noisy Bocas town for peace and quiet so you can sleep to the beautiful sounds of the waves! We work daily at maintaining the Villas so that they are even more perfect than the pictures!! We are here on the grounds for when you need us and disappear when not!

Second stay and still the Best

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay and the best home away from home. Love that I can cook and look out over the ocean. Having a pool and beach right there is the best of two worlds.

Place is clean and kept in good condition. Owners are friendly and helpful.

Owner's Response: At Las Casitas of Villa Paraiso you have everything you need and want to have the perfect vacation! Your own pool that you don't share with other guests, the quiet safe swimming beach right at your doorstep, without crossing the road to get there, like you need to do at any other place in Bocas. If you don't feel like cooking you can have a meal catered for you by our local chef and relax under the stars or enjoy a movie on Netflix! No other place in Bocas has what we have to offer! You will see once you get here that you have chosen the BEST in Bocas!
