Beautiful does not even begin to describe this place! Stunning coral reef full of sea life right off the deck, monkeys howling at night, convenient to anything you want to do. 1st off if you don't like quiet, simple, serene beauty don't visit Bocas period! Philip was super easy to work with and very good at being available without being intrusive. Brown (Philips care taker, boat diver general man about town) is AMAZING...bless him even with the language barrier he was fun, polite and a wealth of information and believe you me, 3 non-spanish speaking Kansans couldn't have been easy :)
In general every one of the locals we encountered were beyond nice, the children will come out of their houses to say "hola" and at no time did we ever feel unsafe. Areas of town are sketchy but taxis are easy to find and use your common sense. The bugs are NO JOKE and unlike mosquitos in the US it is little almost impossible to see gnats so buy some bug spay or oil when you get there and skip the perfume. Starfish Beach, Drago and Red Frog Beach are must visit day trips while you're there and Philips rates are super, just let him know a little ahead of schedule and he takes care of it. Food is available eally anywhere you visit but remember they run on a different time table than we do in the US, rushing is not acceptable so schedule accordingly.
