Aqua Lounge its a party hostel located on the warm Panamanian Caribbean sea, on Isla Carenero, one minute boat ride (1$) away from Isla Colon. The hostel has a huge sundeck with lounge chairs to enjoy sunbathing and the amazing sunsets, we have the perfect view to Bocas town. On top of that, we have natural pools, a trampoline to jump into the sea, hammocks, slack lines and two stories dive tower. Once you dive into the pristine Caribbean waters you will be able to enjoy a huge diversity of fish, starfish and coral; is the perfect spot to do some snorkeling and chill out at our bar. We have a round bar with cheap and good drinks and also a restaurant with a broad menu to suit all palets and all pockets.

Aqua Lounge is located on Isla Carenero, Bocas del Toro, Panamá. Carenero is a small and exclusive island where you can find restaurants, supermarket, white sand beaches, surf snd snorkel spots.
One minute boat ride will take you to Isla Colon, where the main town is located, there you have a wide range of restaurants and night life.

We offer several options for our guests. We have several dorms, that would offer you a great standard of comfort and services as well as we offer several private rooms for groups of friends that travel together. Of course, since we are a hostel, we also take care of the social aspect of the accommodation, which means that we have several common and social areas where the travellers can get together and speak about past experiences and future plans.

Perfect place for partying, however, we joined a beer pong tournament and were told midway through our game that we could only continue playing if we played with beer in our cups. While we understand that the hostel wants to make money through such a tournament, we think it is unacceptable to force guests to drink to participate. Also, filtered water is not free (it’s $0.25 per 1.5 litres).

my stay was great! don’t expect great luxury, but for a party hostel it was very nice. the food is a little expensive at the restaurant and takes a while to come out, but it’s pretty good & otherwise you can easily take a $1 water taxi to the main island for food. the bathroom is cleaned regularly and the rest of the room was pretty clean (beds were clean and comfortable enough). noise is obviously a thing so if that bothers you a lot don’t stay here, but with a good pair of earplugs it is absolutely fine.

Had a fabulous stay here at Aqua Lounge. The hostel hosted a reggae night (Thursday) and Filthy Friday, both were brilliant. The facilities were great, super cold air con, clean showers/bedroom, pools, and restaurant. Easy to arrive at via boat from the other side of Bocas and boats ran across to the other side all day/early hours of the morning. Staff were fab, great check in and very friendly. The hostel dog is also super cute, and walked with us around the whole island. Would definitely recommend!
