Where to Stay in Bocas Del Toro

We will be at Bluff Beach Resort for a Yoga Retreat that starts Sunday Feb 22, 2015. We plan on arriving in Panama City on Friday to check out the canal. Then Saturday will arrive in Bocas to get settled in and check out the surroundings. We can't stay at Bluff Beach as they are booked Saturday night and our retreat doesn't start til Sunday. Seeking suggestions to stay for one night (Saturday) in Bluff Beach. We won't have a car. Would like to be walking distance to restaurants and night life since it may be our only night out. Reasonable price. Good Location, Neat, clean and safe are our only requirements. Thank you,

If you want to stay at Buff I would highly suggest Tesero Escondido. They serve food but there are only a couple, if that much, places to eat around Buff. In town where all the action is have a ton of hotels, I think the best is Royal Palm. A nice place over the water is Cocomo By The Sea. Slighty out of town but still within walking or cheap taxi is Villa Parisio (sp?) and their casitas. They are actually on a beach and are very nice people. If you want to stay in an authentic Caribbean neighborhood check out Bahia Del Sol or Koko Resort, both run by the same people.

I second Cocomo By the Sea. They only have 4 rooms though so book early. Easy to walk to everything and right on the water. Also well priced

This is a helpful post, I was just wondering if anyone has used and/or consider using AirBnb while staying in Bocas Del Toro.... any issues with safety concerns. I would prefer to use this instead of hotels for a more personalized experience. Any thoughts?

Haven't heard of airbnb but if you check out vrbo or bocasvacations.com. It will give you the same experience as airbnb....assuming you want to rent a unit to your self. Also tons of hostels here, many with private rooms.

We are using Air Band B and are staying at Nomad Living Villa. They have been extremely helpful. Let me know if you need any more info. You should be able to find them.
