We invite you to Bocas Exploration. If you're learning or want to improve your surfing skills in the warm waters of the tropics, this trip is for you.

Bocas del Toro


If you're looking for an amazing surf trip where you'll improve your surfing skills in paradise... this is it! I visited for the first time back in 1996 and was absolutely blown away by the sheer beauty of the tropical islands. This all-inclusive trip takes care of all the logistics from three meals a day, airport transfers, boat transfers, and AC accommodations steps from the water.

This trip will be more focused on beginners to novice surfers. With the perfect warm soft wave just minutes from our home, you'll be able to fine-tune your pop-up and surfing skills. The more experienced surfers are more than welcome to join and will be directed to the waves of their liking which are also just steps or a short boat ride away.

With all Epic trips, I do my best to deliver safety, respect, and make your surf escape as comfortable as possible. I take out all the hassles so you simply worry about having an absolutely amazing time and returning home revitalized.

The Accommodations
Accommodations include 3 private bedrooms. The two bedrooms have their own private bathroom in the hallway. There is a kitchen and living room attached through an open-air hallway.

There is access to the garden where fresh vegetables and tropical fruits are grown. There is a lawn for sunbathing or rinsing off after a surf session. The house is located on the main walking path on Isla Carenero, right on the beach but tucked into the jungle so it is tranquil.

The house is updated with air conditioning, new beds and mattresses in every room, and all of the necessary beach equipment you could need on vacation (snorkels, goggles, SUP, kayaks, and surfboards).

On the upper level are the host and his two sweet dogs, always available to help keep you comfortable during your stay.

The Food
Like all Epic surf trips, we eat well on this trip as well. On the first day, we'll make a grocery run to stock up our home with snacks and other items to carry us between meals. We will be going out for most of our meals and will have breakfast prepared for us every day. Bocas has an amazing selection of cuisine from tasty Indian food to local grinds to perfect Pizza.

There are a few places to eat on the island we are staying (Carenero Island) like Bibi's on the water and the chill vibes of Leaf Eaters.

We will also boat taxi over to the main island of Bocas Town and try the healthy meals of Cafe del Mar, BDT, and one of my favorites, OM Cafe. You will eat well on this trip amigos y amigas. 

Getting There
Please let Manny V help you with your travel arrangements. You will fly into Panama City, Panama (PTY airport code) (not Panama City, Florida). You may need to stay the night near the smaller airport about 20 minutes up the road if you can't make the connecting flight. If this is the case, I suggest you leave a day early, stay the night and take the earliest flight to Bocas. I will help with transport and hotel stay no problem.

Arriving: You're going to fly into Tocumen International Airport. The airport code is PTY. Then, you'll want to fly from PTY to BOC (Bocas del Toro airport). I have a contact in Panama City, Panama that will assist with booking flights, if needed. Please contact me for more info: This email address is being protected from spambots.
