ONCE YOU ARRIVE IN BOCAS TOWN

Directions get fairly simple, as there is only one road going away from town! Once you have left town, that road will fork into two roads, at a spot appropriately called the “Y” or “Igriega” One road goes to the area known as Bocas del Drago, and the other goes to Bluff. You will be going to “Bluff”.

 

If you are driving your own car, stay on the road that hugs the ocean (which will be on your right). The road to Bluff is quite rustic (getting worse during the rainy season, and only 4×4 can reasonably expect to make it).

 

If you are not driving, find a pick-up taxi, and ask them to take you to Tesoro Escondido at Bluff.

 

There are no “addresses” in Bocas, only land marks…. We are ” the big 3-story house with a white roof just before Bluff Beach”
