Bocas del Toro is where you want to be.

We carefully chose Playa Istmito on Isla Colon in Bocas del Toro for
the Bocas Garden Terraces. The island chain is one of the most
beautiful areas in all of Panama.  It is one of the most popular tourist
destinations in the country, with a wealth of offerings for those
desiring adventure, relaxation and the sense of peace that can only be
found by escaping to an island retreat.

Bocas is located outside the hurricane zone.  The
temperature is comfortably in the high 70’s to 80’s (21-32 degrees
Celsius) year round. Imagine a life spent in shorts, skirts and sandals
every day of the year!

The Islands’ jungle rainforests are home to countless birds, butterflies
and colorful flowers, as well as howler and capuchin monkeys and
sloths.  A heavenly delight for hikers, birdwatchers and photographers.

Bocas has several gorgeous white-sand beaches lined with swaying
palm trees. Water enthusiasts are drawn to the archipelago for the
crystal clear water and colorful coral reefs,
making it one of the best places for scuba diving and snorkeling in the
Western Caribbean.  World-class waves bring surfers from around the
globe.  There are numerous local tour operators available for these
activities as well as sailing, fishing, jet-skiing, kayaking and sightseeing.

The airport on Isla Colon offers convenient daily access via two
national airlines from Panama City,  AeroPerlas and Air Panama, and
from San Jose, Costa Rica, Nature Air.

Playa Istmito—Beyond Ideal
The Bocas Garden Terraces condominiums are located in a quiet, new
neighborhood of Bocas Town on Isla Colon, the archipelago’s main
island, where many modern buildings are being built, including a luxury
condominium building with two swimming pools and marina. A
tranquil location with enchanting breezes, magnificent views of the
azure Caribbean and just steps from the beach, yet easily accessible to
local services.  Within walking distance are grocery stores, a hardware
store, and local bars and restaurants.

The Condos
Along with our fine construction and quality finishes, our buildings
offer all of the modern amenities that you and your guests could wish
for.  City services such as water, electricity and telephone, as well as
satellite television and high-speed internet access are all available.  This
is not true if you purchase property further from town or on other
islands, where you may need to catch your own rainwater, produce
your own electricity, and the luxuries of television and internet service
are not even available.

The Community
Bocas del Toro offers a vibrant Caribbean atmosphere with a mixture
of colorful cultures.  Bocas Town has many restaurants serving
something for everyone, from local fried chicken with plantains to filet
mignon.  For you night owls, there is also a spirited club scene and live
music can be found most any day of the week.  There are several
lively street festivals, carnivals and parades throughout the year where
you can experience a fiesta of local music and dance. Bocatoranians
are happy, friendly people and many of them speak English, in addition
to Spanish.

Hundreds of expats have made the islands of Bocas del Toro their
home in recent years, and there is a welcoming community to greet
you.  Popular activities include monthly Garden Club excursions,
Annual Chili Cook-Off  and Poker Run, regular live entertainment and
countless BBQ’s and beach outings.  Residents here are a close-knit
bunch that will become your second family.  

Cost of Living
The cost of living in Bocas is a fraction of what you would spend in
North America or Europe .  Panama offers many benefits ts to
pensioners with no minimum age requirement and elder retirees
