Where you’ll be

Carenero Island, Bocas del Toro Province, Panama

Our area of the island has many sandy swimming beaches, as well as a couple of beach-side restaurants (Bibi's on the Beach, Coquitos, and Leaf Eaters).

On the weekends there is live music nearby at Bibis and the beaches have more people. During the weekdays, it's typically very quiet and peaceful at the house.

Our house backs up to the undeveloped jungle, and you will see many wild birds and sometimes even sloths!

The surf breaks closest to us by walking are Black Rock (5 minutes, great for beginners) or Carenero Point (10-15 minutes). You can take a water taxi to the other breaks on Bastimentos or Isla Colon

Hi, I'm Alex. I am a Panamanian native and have been living on Carenero Island for 17 years. I'm a surfer and ocean-lover with a passion for Bocas. I live in the upstairs level of the house with my two dogs, Luna and Guial. I'm usually surfing, diving, spear fishing, gardening or cooking. I appreciate relaxed, chill vibes at the house, island style.

I will meet you at the airport or dock when you arrive and show you how to take the boat to our house, as well as a quick tour of the town for shopping, food, etc.

I offer surf lessons and scuba diving packages as well. Having lived on Carenero for so long, I have connections with other local businesses and can arrange tours and excursions around the islands for you.

I look forward to hosting you and helping you create your own island adventure!
