Surfing in bocas del toro

Surf guide

We might be biased, but If you’re looking to book a surf trip to Bocas del Toro, the best homebase is our neighborhood, Paunch Beach. We have two great breaks within walking distance, several more just up the road – and any other spot you want to check it out is just a boat ride away. 

 

Keep in mind that our neighborhood waves are for intermediate to advanced surfers. The best spot for beginners is off Isla Caranero at Black Rock – you can taxi to town and hop a $2 boat taxi to the wave. 

Neighboorhood WAVES

Home is where your biggest decision of the day is where to paddle out. Walk to Paunch? Surf the front yard? Take a bike to Bluff? … or a hop a boat to La Punta? Anyway, we have one of the best spots to surf in Bocas del Toro in our neighboorhood!

Where else can you sleep in a treehouse fully immersed in the jungle, while still falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing and  walking down the driveway to check the surf? 

Need a board?

We always recommend Mono Loco Surf School to our clients. They have an amazing selection, great prices, and great service. They are also located on Isla Colon, just off of the central park in town.

 

If you want something closer to home, you can also rent a board right next door to us, at Paki Point Beach Club

 

NOTE:  Both spots also offer surf lessons!

See you this season!

The best times to come surfing in Bocas del Toro, Panama are December – April.

There’s also small season for July, and with climate change waves are here more often than not.

Just don’t schedule a surf trip for September / October – these months are pretty consistently flat – but super sunny, if that’s your thing! 

And of course you can take part in our yoga courses all year round!
