Popa Paradise is the ideal location from which to explore the magnificent Bocas del Toro Archipelago. Without leaving the resort you can enjoy over 1,000 ft of wide sandy beach. Kayaks, paddles and snorkeling gear are provided free of charge. There is a beautiful reef just a couple of hundred meters off the beach.
Below are a few examples of off site excursions that can be arranged by our staff for you and your group. Tours can be customized based upon your interests. We provide a guide, packed lunch, snacks and beverages. All of our day trips are weather dependent, and do not need to be booked in advance. While we try to accommodate as many guests’ wishes as possible, we can’t guarantee availability of every excursion on any given day – our three resort boats can be quite busy with other excursions, guest transfers and bringing supplies to the hotel. Let our Managers know what outings interest you, and we will do our best to make it happen.
