Trip Planner: Central America / Panama / Bocas del Toro Province / Isla Colon / Bocas Town / Boca del Drago
Search crystal clear shallows for colorful starfish at Boca del Drago, where palms and mangroves line a white sandy bay. If you look closely, you will see plenty of starfish in the bay in all different colors and sizes-- many call this bay home. Over the years, this natural attraction has brought a hub of tourism to the bay, with plenty of beach restaurants now selling food, drinks and the odd souvenir. Out from the shore look for a small speckle of coral-- it offers good snorkelling conditions in calm waters. Remember not to touch the starfish. Use our Bocas Town travel route planner to arrange your visit to Boca del Drago and other attractions in Bocas Town.
