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 three times 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.

**Please note: The Basic Double Room is actually a Tent**

Palmar Beach Lodge Policies and Conditions:

Check in from 14:00 to 22:00.
Check out before 11:00.

Cancellation policy: 72 hours before arrival.

Payment upon arrival by cash, or by card with a 5% surcharge.

Taxes not included - 10.00%
Breakfast not Included
Please note that there is no common kitchen. Do not bring any food, as it may attract animals and insects to the rooms.

General Info:

The Palmar Shuttle boat leaves three times daily from the dock at Bocas Surf School at 10 am, 12 pm and 4 pm. This service is free for guests and limited spaces are offered on a first come, first served basis. If you need any help with your luggage, please make sure to arrive on one of these shuttles. If you cannot make it at these times, you can hire a water taxi from one of the public docks and ask to be taken to the Palmar Dock on Red Frog Beach ($8-10 per person).

Unfortunately, there is no space to store your luggage at the dock. If you have some time to kill before the shuttle, you can grab a smoothie at the batido bus on the lawn and wait at the restaurant there. Please do not go to the Surf School dock to wait, as that is a hangout area for their guests only.

Please note that if you take a private taxi, you will need to show proof of your reservation with us to avoid paying the $5 entrance fee. They will not ask for proof when arriving with our shuttle. From the dock, follow the trail signs for 10 minutes until you reach Palmar.

Reception is open daily from 8 am to 5 pm. Check-in time is at 2:00 pm, but we are happy to store your bags if you arrive early. If you are arriving after 6, please make sure to bring a flashlight! Our restaurant is open from 8 am to 10:30 am for breakfast, 12:30 pm to 4:30 pm for lunch, and 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm for dinner. Please plan accordingly if you are going to arrive late or leave early.

    Dieses Hostel ist wahnsinnig schön! Es ist modern hergerichtet und liegt direkt an einem der schönsten Strände von Bocas! Die Dorms sind sehr modern aus Holz mitten im Dschungel gebaut und die Anlage wirkt sehr sauber und gepflegt! Alles in allem definitiv zu empfehlen! (Nur das BBQ kann man auslassen)

    Perfect „hostel“, it was more like a resort The only negative point is, that the pillows smelled a bit awkward but nothing serious. If you are on a budget, it might not be the perfect spot (no kitchen) but staff was nice, the food tasty and worth it’s price All in all a super cool stay! We would come back for sure

    Sehr gepflegte Anlage, trotz Dschungellage. Ich war 2 Nächte im 8er Dorm. Es gibt Mückennetze an den Fenstern, nix kam rein. Die Betten sind komfortabel mit eigenem Licht, Ventilator und USB Steckdose. Es gibt auch einen Spint (schloss mitbringen). Dusche und Toilette sind allerdings außerhalb - zwar sehr sauber aber eben mitten in der Natur. Essen im Restaurant ist sehr teuer(8-17$) und dafür nicht so super. Trinkwasser dafür umsonst. Die Terrasse und der Strand sind einfach perfekt!

    Wonderful place to stay. There is a restaurant you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner. They offer different activities during day as well. But you can also just chill at the beautiful red frog beach!

    Direkt am Strand und im Dschungel! Dorms sind super mit eigenem Ventilator und Licht, großen Lockern und stabilen Betten. Tägliche Aktivitäten und Yoga werden Angeboten. Man muss im Restaurant dort essen, kann also teurer werden

    there are aunts in the cheaper tents everywhere and the food is no highlight (basic but not traditional carribean food) but besides, it's the perfect location and a real highlight with really cozy tents and great employees!

    Generell ein super Hotel (für ein hostel ist es definitiv zu teuer) in exponierter Lage direkt am Strand. Allerdings sind die Preise recht hoch und das angepriesene Ecokonzept wird nur halbherzig realisiert (In den Duschen gibt es nur sehr knapp Wasser, an der Bar werden einweg Cola Dosen verkauft). Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Alles in allem ein schönes Hotel, das allerdings etwas überhyped wird.

    The hostel is very nice and the stuff is very friendly. There are free shuttles 3 times a day that go to Bocas. Because the hostel is in the jungle there is no kitchen. So it might get a little expensive if you have breakfast and dinner every day at the restaurant. Because they are saving the rain water and using that, we didn’t have water for one day at the showers or toilets.
