Once known as only Old Bank island, Isla Bastimentos is home to Panama’s first national marine park. It’s one of the last remaining authentic islands in Bocas del Toro where the local Guari-Guari dialect can be heard as you stroll down the sidewalk of Old Bank Town.
Isla Bastimentos is one of the larger islands in the archipelago and home to the sleepy town of Old Bank, the Salt Creek indigenous community, and the Isla Bastimentos National Marine Park. You will also find the Red Frog Beach Island Resort development and some of the most postcard perfect beaches here in Bastimentos.
You can fly through the jungle canopy on the zipline tour at Red Frog Beach, kayak through mangrove mazes, explore the many caves, and this is of course, without mentioning just laying out on some beautiful beaches in the Bocas del Toro archipelago.
If you’re looking for relaxation, adventure and eco-tourism- look no further, Bastimentos Island is exactly what you have been searching for.
