In reading other reviews, it seems that people come to Punta Caracol thinking it is like the Four Seasons in Bora Bora, which apparently skews their opinion of this Caribbean gem. My husband and I recently had a 7 night stay at Punta Caracol and we will absolutely go again. The other reviews are correct in that it does not...

We sought out Punta Caracol for a relatively affordable over the water option. I agree with some prior reviews that compare this to glamping. The price is for the location - not for high end luxury. Our arrival was smooth- the resort has a driver pick you up at the airport and take you to the resorts dock. From there...

Me and my two sisters visited the Punta Caracol Acqua Lodge in February 2017 and we had a great time. The staff was very nice and anything that you needed they worked to make your stay wonderful. I would recommend this place to get to know your family.

20 min boat ride from Bocas del Toro town takes you to only by boat reachable small resort entirely on the gorgeous clean and transparent water. You don't need snorkeling gear to watch numerous fish, star fish and sea urchins, including elegant manta rays. There is no typical beach at the Lodge, but you can swim of your acqua lodge...

Before planning my trip to Bocas del Toro, I read a lot of reviews online; not only of Punta Caracol but also of many other places nearby. I finally selected Punta Caracol and I can say that after spending 4 days there, I am very pleased with my choice. The hotel ("aqua-lodge") is a little pricey but I think it...

We spent 5 nights and enjoyed every minute. The staff are very friendly (although some of them speak limited English) and very helpful. The food was incredible each and every day. And they gave so much that we actually asked them to give us only 3 portions split between our family of 4. (Even though it was included, we hated...

I will admit, my new wife and I were a little concerned with a few of the reviews that Caracol had received. We chose to ignore them and go since it is a lot more affordable than other places. We could not be more thrilled that we came to Caracol and all the negative reviews are ridiculous. The food is...
