Panama Accommodation,
Bocas del Toro Region

Playa Tortuga Hotel and Beach Resort


The large, modern Playa Tortuga Hotel and Beach Resort sits on its own private stretch of beach just outside Bocas Town on Colon, the main island of Bocas del Toro off Panama’s western Caribbean coast.

Playa Tortuga is a good choice for parents wanting plenty of distractions for their children and for those who require a certain standard of comfort. Many of the other hotels on Colon are small and simple, situated in the town and lack facilities like a swimming pool or beachfront.

There are 117 en suite rooms with modern facilities and contemporary décor. All of the rooms are spacious and light and have flat-screen TV, mini-bar, free Wi-Fi and a balcony or terrace with sea views.

The restaurant serves a variety of tasty local and international cuisine and there is a terrace bar for drinks and snacks. Other facilities include a large outdoor pool, gym and table tennis court.

The hotel offers canoeing, kayaking, snorkelling and safe swimming in the beautiful clear waters just off the beach.


Restaurant, adult and children’s swimming pools, bar, lounge, free Wi-Fi, room service, TV, fridge, laundry service, luggage storage, shuttle service and 24 hour reception.

Optional Activities

Snorkelling, diving, fishing, canoeing, sea kayaking and boat tours.

Panama was a fascinating and extraordinary country. The pleasing thing was to see its immense areas of rainforest, i.e the Darien. An amazing place. We encountered many different Panamanians and what came across to us was their pride in their country. This holiday was amazing, all the things we like doing and seeing and more. Thank you so much for all your hard work in making this a holiday to remember and savour long after our return, and at such short notice!
