Beschreibung

Palmar is the only beachfront hostel in the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Cruise across the bay from the main island with a water taxi 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, outings to town, poker, and game 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 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, otherwise you will be charged 100% of your reservation.

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:

From the airport, take a taxi ($2 pp) or walk (10 min) to the Bastimentos dock on Calle 3. From the Bastimentos dock, hire a water taxi to take you to the "Palmar dock at Red Frog" (a fair price is $8-10 pp). After a scenic 15 minute boat ride, the boat will bring you to a small dock on the bayside entrance of Red Frog Beach. You will then have a beautiful ten minute walk to Palmar across a jungle path where you can see monkeys, sloths, red frogs and caimans if you keep your eyes open!

Please note that you will need to show proof of your reservation to avoid paying the $5 entrance fee. 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.

    best hostel I have seen so far, very well maintained, best location ever directly on the beach, felt more like a 5* hotel than a hostel

    I stayed 4 days in palmar but wish I could have stayed longer. Everyone is so lovely, the beach beautiful and the food at the restaurant is also the best. Because of the fun activities every evening it is very easy to make new friends there. The only “minus point“ I can name is that the Happy Hour lasts only from 5-7 ;)

    Best accommodation ever. Especially for those who love empty beaches and quite places to relax. Sam the yoga teacher was just awesome!! Highly recommend this place. Be aware that there is no kitchen and you have to eat at the restaurant … good Food but if you stay longer a bit expensive

    I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel! It's super nice to have some chilled days at the beach (awesome quite beach), however it's a bit off the track. To the main island you have to take a boat for 8$ one way and there is only one small supermarket at the island. Furthermore there is no possibility to cook at the hostel, so you are kind off forced to eat at the same restaurant day by day (rather small menu too). Besides that everything was great!

    Kein typisches Backpacker-Hostel. Man muss sich bewusst sein, dass es keine Küche gibt. Die Mitarbeiter waren leider nicht sehr freundlich. Das Yoga war toll und günstig.

    Anreise von Hauptinsel mit 10 min. Bootsfahrt. Shuttleboot gratis zu runden Zeiten. Staff freundlich. Leider ist das Zelt (Standartzimmer) unten offen, auch nicht mit Netz abgedeckt, sodass wir die eine Nacht Riesenkakerlaken & Riesenheuschrecken im Zelt hatten. Essen: Mein Freund hatte Fisch gegessen, musste sich dann die ganze Nacht übergeben. Essen ist nur im Hostel vor Ort möglich, Preis ganz ok. Wir würden nicht wieder kommen, aufgrund dem feuchten Zelt im Rainforest..

    Die Lage ist top. Direkt im Dschungel und doch am Meer. Trotzdem wurde uns der Aufenthalt vermiest: Mitarbeiter waren sehr gleichgültig und unfreundlich, so dass man sich Überhaupt bnicht wohl fühlte. Es begann mit dem Transfer von Bocas Town: der Bootsführer war unfreundlich und launisch. Und dieser Eindruck setzte sich auch auf der Insel fort: unglaublich lange Wartezeiten im Restaurant. Schade.
