The Best Snorkeling is off Bocas del Toro , Panama

The snorkeling just does not get any better. The reefs at Coral Key and Zapatilla are epic! Setting out in the early morning on a day long adventure with a native guide named Nazareo, every moment was a treat with the best snorkeling. 

A tropical island beach.
Paradise. This empty island is a rarely visited national park.
Three large rocks with plants in the ocean,
Palm island. With the Frigatebird flying overhead, the water is shallow enough to walk to the island.
Covered panga boats at a dock.
Breakfast. Before getting on the boat, the window sells typical morning treats like fried chicken, baked squash, and French fries.
Two swimmers in the blue ocean for the best snorkeling.
Best. There is no better snorkeling anywhere than the clear blue waters off Bocus del Toro.

Hi. We are Paul and Cindy, two biologists, fit and over 50, who enjoy exploring, photographing, and blogging about our outdoor travel. Our journey is to find outdoor activities that are away from crowds, kind to nature, and authentic. We carry backpacks, stay in clean accommodations, and feel that good food is as important as good friends.
