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**

General Info:

The Palmar Shuttle boat leaves three times daily from the dock at the Buena Vista Restaurant on the Main Street (next to Azul Paradise Hotel) at 10 am, 12 pm and 4 pm. If you arrive early, the restaurant is open daily with a selection of delicious food and beverages. The shuttle 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).

    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

    Es ist wirklich sehr schön dort und ich kann es nur weiterempfehlen! Ich hatte gedacht, dass es eine Küche zur Selbstverpflegung gibt, hatte aber gar nicht danach geschaut :)

    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 ;)

    Resortähnliches Hostel. Leckeres Essen, tolle Lage direkt am Strand, mitten im Dschungel. Dorms sind super ausgestattet und sauber. Zu empfehlen. Ausflug zum Wizzard Beach lohnt sich und ist abenteuerlich. Yogamatten haben bei uns sehr gestunken.

    Wunderschöne Lodge mitten im Jungle. Wir hatten ein Zelt, das wirklich sehr komfortabel ist. Die Staff war durchweg freundlich, hilfsbereit und super cool. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt. Leider keine Möglichkeit selbst zu kochen, dadurch muss man immer im Restaurant dort essen, was auf Dauer teuer ist. Trotzdem ein wirkliches Paradies zum abschalten.

    The location is perfect, in the middle of green jungle, beaches, and still not too far from the main island. It's a shame that they don't have a kitchen, but their food is very good and the prices are okay. You should also know that it's not very familiar, the staff is more professional than making you feel home. The dorms are very nice, bring earplugs though, the rain at night is loud. Overall still one of the best hostels in Bocas

    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.
