Collette was the most warm and friendly host! Richard was great and cooks an amazing steak (and other meals). Elena made sure we had great activities every day. Everything about Punta Rica was great. It's a small place and you really feel like family when you're there.

“All the rooms are essentially the same, you can't go wrong. Just a heads up, you can't flush toilet paper (Which is true for most every place in Bocas Del Toro). This can make things a little less romantic but we managed to get over it pretty quickly.”
