Free day to enjoy the diverse activities available, like touring the island by bicycle or motorcycle or taking a boat tour to some of the nearby beautiful beaches, keys, rivers and small barren islands, like for example the Zapatillas Keys. These two beautiful islands are located on a coral platform that is defined, toward the open sea, by the breakers that are formed as the wave’s crash on the reef. They are famous for their beautiful beaches, crystal clear waters, coral reefs and small but shady forests. If you like to swim, snorkel or dive, this is the perfect place to go! The best of Zapatillas's underwater world is 300 meters from the beach, toward the mainland, the Coral Islands. The place is shallow with beautiful coral formations, particularly good for snorkeling. There, in no more than 20 feet of water, you can enjoy several underwater coral islets, refuge for snappers, angel fishes, groupers, parrots and butterfly fishes. A walk in the forest is also one of the activities that visitors like to enjoy.

Another free day to enjoy the area. You can for example visit the Cristobal Island and its Indians communities. The biggest village on the island is San Cristobal. The village grows vegetables (cocoa, yuca, rice) and farm animals (chicken, pigs), although the most important activity is fishing. The region of Bocatorito, in the northern part of the island, is a labyrinth of mangrove islets which create a lagoon scenery that fascinates the tourist due to its calm waters. This also the place most visited by dolphins in the entire Bay.

Another free day in this pristine setting surrounded by golden beaches, tropical rainforest, and an azure sea. Why not organized a hike in the rainforest to see the flora and fauna or go on a motorized canoe river trips to search for sloths and white face monkeys. Of course you may also choose to just relax at the lodge, go snorkeling and enjoy the Caribbean sun.

Enjoy your last morning in the Bocas del Toro region, have breakfast overlooking the crystal clear sea or dip into the ocean for a last swim. You can spend the morning visiting the town of Bocas to buy souvenirs and look at the beautiful Old Spanish Buildings.
