Day 1 Bocas Del Toro

After consulting Activity Desk for things to do, we decided to hire a captain with a boat who could take us around.  Best decision of the day!  Bolo spoke great English and is a great captain. We started the day with breakfast of Coconut Crusted French Toast and Huevos Rancheros at Sea Monkey restaurant on Bastimentos.  Bastimentos is one street, a few eateries, poor, Caribbean, authentic and we loved being there.
After breakfast, we went snorkeling to Crawl Bay, passing by the sloths island where we spotted a few sloths from our boat. Crawl Bay has two snorkeling spots.  One is right off the dock, in a very shallow, calm and clear water.  There is a small snack shop and a restaurant. The place is as Carribean and chill as it gets, and only accessible by boat as most of the places on the archipelago.

The second spot is a bit deeper, and has an abundance of coral and smaller fish.  We snorkeled off the boat, the water was a perfect temperature, with just a touch of a current.
We went by the Dolphin Bay, but didn’t see any dolphins, however the kids got to jump in the water and look and touch some starfish.

We came back, kids jumped in a pool while parents got to relax with a glass of wine.
