This place single-handedly makes getting a good night's sleep in Bocas impossible. Outdoor club with loud, bassy dance music and an obnoxiously hacky DJ shouting into a mic every night until 4 f*cking AM. For the sake of entertaining a handful of binge-drinking frat bros...More

We had a blast here, the DJ was consistently good throughout the night. Energy was great and lively, drinks were great and affordable, and the setting is very cool. You can see the sunken ship lit up at night, surrounded by platforms to walk/dance on....More

This place has NO respect for their neighbors, community who live near, nor the businesses including Hotels that also need to make money...the loud thumping base was the same beat for many nights, not creative with music. This Noise runs from 10:00 pm until close...More

El Barco Hundido isn’t just a bar. It’s an adult wonderland surrounding a sunken boat, hence—The Wreck Deck. Bartenders are incredibly helpful and attentive. Presume any white powder in the restroom is Comet.

Really great music and cheap drinks! Not always that busy but that doesn't matter if you're with a big group. The bar is really big and there's even a section where you can swim in the sea. I highly recommend this place although the toilets...More

Tropical atmosphere or what?! Best place for dancing with consistently good music. Love the layout, especially the outer dock area with a little ocean pool in the middle - if you're having a good enough night you can jump right in (my friends did).

Great place to dance, bartenders are super friendly. There is also a great back dock to relax and hang out. There is a food vendor right outside on the busy nights - nothing better than his kabobs after partying all night. Also it's right next...More
