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 to Selina, so if you're staying there its a safe, quick walk home

You really really get the feel of being on an exotic vacation here.The club itself is barely visible from the road,but when you get inside ,wow! You are literally right on the water! Inside the club is a large pond with a bridge over it and so many places you can get to from there. The highlight was the actual... More

Plays tropical and mainstream music, but drinks can be expensive. Although for the info of the ladies, many nights are ladies nights haha. There are also dancing classes during the day. It is a must do if you go to Bocas.

We were recommended to visit Barco Hundido because it is actually a landmark in Bocas, maybe we arrived to early or maybe it was that we did not like to drink rum on a Ladies Night... it was not our favorite spot. Still I did observe that if you like to dance this is the place ! There was a... More

We were in Bocas during the week, since we'd decided to spend our weekends in the City. Because of that, there was not much going on around the town and the few places we found were such a snooze. When we asked around what was good everyone pointed us to El Barco Hundido. I was really glad to go with... More

I was here on a Sunday night. One of the staff took my wallet out of my hand. When I went after him the manager came over and started yelling at me. He hit me. Then he pushed me towards the door. Criminals and thugs. The police need to shut these guys down. I had to cancel all my credit... More

Don't be surprised to see the bartender from your hostel,the tour group you were next to on the beach, and that random guy from your hometown you met earlier in the day all there! It's a great place where locals and vacationers a like go out for a good time. Young and old, Caribbean, hispanic, white, whatever. Everyone is there!... More
