Property Description

Palmar is the only beachfront hostel in the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Cruise across the bay from the main island on our free boat shuttle, which leaves twice a day from town, and arrive on Isla Bastimentos, home of the Bastimentos National Marine Park. From the dock, walk ten minutes across the island, through the jungle, to find Palmar situated directly on the famous Red Frog Beach. Stop by our reception desk to learn about all of our available tours. Take part in our free daily activities including coastline hikes to the national park, bonfires, hookah, bbq, outings to town, poker, and movie nights. If you're looking for adventure, let us book you a zipline, ATV, cave, or deep boarding tour. If you're looking for relaxation, treat yourself to a morning yoga class, and spend your day reading on one of our luxurious beach loungers. There is something for everyone.

Our restaurant and bar are fantastic, but there are other spots to check out within walking distance. If you're in the mood for something unique, let us book a special outing for you to one of our favorite spots.

The jungle is our home, and protecting it is very important to us. Palmar runs entirely on solar power, and all of our water is rain caught. Experience the magic of showering in fresh, filtered rainwater at natural temperature, free of any chemicals or additives. Take note of our high efficiency systems, minimal impact construction with local hardwoods, and recycling throughout the property.

The dorm cabins are located in the back of the property, tucked away under a canopy of rainforest. Each dorm bed has a semi-orthopedic mattress, high-quality linens, a personal window, fan, reading light, and accompanying locker.

Palmar is an eco-friendly lodge. In order to minimise impact on this incredible beach and jungle, we have to take certain measures. All of our water is caught from the rain. We encourage all of our guests to conserve as much as possible.

We offer charging for electronic devices, but only from 8 am to 6 pm. Exceptions do occur when there is an unusual abundance or lack of sunshine.

Latest Review

" Great hostel with awesome volunteers. Did an amazing hike to the Up in the hill cafe. Awesome day of red frogs and other wildlife. Ryan and Jeremy were awesome. Thanks guys! The location is great. Pity the storm ruined the beach. Feel bad for the local businesses. Worst attribute is the food. Expensive and average. Ended up eating at Selina’s both days. Great food and half the price. Tents are amazing and the grounds are flawless. If they could fix the food, perfection. "
