Trip Planner: Central America / Panama / Bocas del Toro Province / Isla Colon / Bocas Town / Dolphin Bay Preserve
See bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat, go jungle hiking, and snorkel in the warm Caribbean waters filled with coral at Dolphin Bay Preserve. After a short boat ride to the secluded and tranquil bay, you can visit a working cacao plantation. Crunch on fresh sugar cane and taste fresh pineapples and cacao straight from the pod while hearing about the process of making chocolate from the caretaker--a member of the local Ngöbe tribe. You're likely to see caimans, howler monkeys, toucans, and sea urchins. Be careful not to step on poison dart frogs, and don't forget to apply sunscreen and insect repellent. Our Bocas Town road trip app makes visiting Dolphin Bay Preserve and other Bocas Town attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Dolphin Bay Preserve Reviews
Muy buena experiencia la cual permite darnos cuenta de la importancia de cuidar la naturaleza... ojalá que el gobierno panameño esté controlando el bienestar Del Mar y todas las especies de la zona. more »Very good experience which allows us to realize the importance of taking care of nature... hopefully the Panamanian government is controlling the Del Mar welfare and all species in the area.
Para quienes han presenciado un show de delfines o convivido con ellos antes, no lo recomiendo pues es prácticamente esperar en el bote hasta lograr verlos. Sin embargo sería entretenido para niños. more »For those who have witnessed a dolphin show or lived with them before, I do not recommend it as it is practically waiting in the boat until you get to see them. However, it would be entertaining for children.
