Property Description

Hostal El Jaguar is built right out over the Caribbean ocean on the calm side of Bastimentos island, which means that you can jump in the water off our dock! The common area is an open air deck over the water which includes our hammock garden, plenty of tables and seating to socialize, two communal kitchens for guest use and a reception area which is also a fully stocked bar. Hostal El Jaguar is one of the best established guesthouses in Bastimentos, and has been owned by an Panamanian native for 16 years who is happy to share his insider information about the area so you get the best tips for your stay. The hostel is in the center of Old Bank town, conveniently located right next to the water taxi dock and just minutes on foot to all the restaurants and supermarkets in Bastimentos. We are a quiet, friendly guesthouse and we pride ourselves on taking care of our guests and making sure they get the most out of their stay!

PLEASE NOTE THAT BASTIMENTOS DOES NOT HAVE A CASH MACHINE (ATM). All local businesses accept cash only, including our hostel, so please plan accordingly by taking out enough cash for your stay in Bocas town on Isla Colon (the nearest ATM).

    Superb

    I'm not sure how El Jaguar could have been any better. In contrast to Bocas Town, the island was relaxed and much quieter at night, while still having plenty of restaurants and things to do. Pros: full bar, water taxi pickup off the deck, help with tour setup (the bat cave tour guy was great!), quiet at night, private bathroom in our room, AC, and two full kitchens. Cons: no screen on the window, no showerhead. Basically, we loved our stay here!

    Everyone working there were nice. Wish there was a microwave and AC in the double private room. A bit of bad smell near the entrance. Can’t really swim near the dock because the water is dirty

    Fabulous

    A great hostel for Isla Bastimentos. The rooms were nice enough and the staff was friendly. The bad: It didn't have hot water, but most places don't. The water right off the dock was dirty, so you can't swim off of it. The good: Basically everything else was great, I would stay there again. I loved Bastimentos and recommend visiting Red Frog beach.

    Very friendly staff, common area is nice, but bedrooms are extremely rough & ready. Lick of paint would go a long way. Water off the dock is too dirty to swim in.
