Bambuda Lodge is the only place in Bocas with a waterfront location and a massive pool. Only 5 minutes from town, Bambuda offers the perfect blend of good vibrations and chilled out atmosphere. We have a coral reef for snorkeling and acres of lush jungle for exploring. Our on-site bar and restaurant will keep the cold drinks flowing while you relax by the pool. Spend time in one of our many interesting hang out spots where you can enjoy the amazing view and the delicious food with friends. -We have a full tour office and we can arrange countless activities for you around the islands that will keep you busy for weeks. Onward travel to somewhere in Panama or Costa Rica can be arranged for you easily. Within Bambuda's 14-acre property there are hiking trails through the jungle, coral reef snorkeling directly in front, and countless plants, fruits and animals living all around us.
