Thousands of years ago, when the archipelago of Bocas del Toro separated from the continent, a distinct ecosystem was born, destined to become the “Galapagos of the North”. Known for its forests, mangroves, swamps, coral reefs and beaches, a significant portion of the island belongs to the Isla Bastimentos Maritime National Park, home to some endangered amphibian and reptile species. Tourists will find ecofriendly lodgings, inciting them to relax and enjoy the surrounding natural beauty. According to the legends, the pirate Henry Morgan hid his treasure in this island.
