Red Frog Beach Island Resort and Spa - Bocas del Toro, Panama
Welcome to Panama! Thank you for planning your vacation at the Red Frog Beach Island Resort & Spa. We are looking forward to hosting you on Isla Bastimentos in Bocas del Toro. PLEASE PRINT AND BRING THIS LETTER WITH YOU as it contains important details about your stay. The Red Frog Beach Island Resort & Spa is made up of 41 individual villas spread out over large island hillside. You will arrive from Bocas Town by boat to the Red Frog Marina on Isla Bastimentos; then you will receive your Jungle Cart and wind through a Nature Preserve on bumpy dirt pathways to arrive at the resort. Red Frog Beach is not your typical resort; the homes and the amenities are spread-out, there is no central pool, no bellhop or big lobby area and you will travel over rocky roads as you wind through the natural landscape on your Jungle Cart (if added to your reservation).  
Depart from Bocas Town by boat to Red Frog Beach (Isla Bastimentos)
Restaurants There is one restaurant at Red Frog Beach, Punta Lava, and another restaurant at our Marina called Castaway. We do have a pre-order grocery list for a fee if you would like food to be placed in your villa. A five day advance notice is required for the groceries to be delivered to your villa upon arrival. Activities Upon arrival, check with your villa host for this week's activities and schedule one of the many tours you would like to experience in Bocas del Toro. We especially recommend the Canopy Zipline Tour and a massage at the new El Susurro Spa is a must! Our resort office is at the Marina Village and you can plan activities and learn more from this location. There is also an island activity center for tourists at the Kayukos Restaurant which is located near a hostel where Red Frog Guests are welcome to eat and get more information about tours and activities.
