WELCOME TO BOCAS DEL TORO
Welcome to the first Surf & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Retreat with Bocas Surf School & Hostel. Are you ready to learn how to surf in beautiful Bocas del Toro and roll at night at the local BJJ academy? Here is your opportunity to do both here in Panama’s top island destination!
Bocas Surf School & Hostel is located on the tranquil location of North Ave., Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro in the northern Caribbean coast of Panama. Our location is only steps to the center of Bocas Town yet far enough to enjoy a quiet night, over the sea. Despite being a new hostel we are starting to become more popular, and recently was called one of the top six hostels in Central America.
Our hostel can only sleep up to 12 and we will be hosting up to 11 for this retreat. It has two bathrooms and our maid keeps everything nice and clean and is there throughout most of the day. The kitchen is large and full equipped. You can check out the sea while cooking! The open format is perfect for hanging out with friends while cooking your meals. Stores are only a few minutes away from the hostel.
The over-the-sea hostel has fast wi-fi throughout the hostel included our deck. Grab a hammock and pull out your laptop and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning before surf session.
We are offering two accommodation choices for this retreat:
Shared Accommodations: Our shared rooms have two bunk beds (sleeps 4 people), rooms have A/C and lockers to keep your stuff safe.
Private Room with Shared bath: The private room has one bunk bed- a double below and single above. It can sleep up to three people. This room also has three lockers and A/C. It is the closest room to the back deck and has a window facing the sea.
Since 2006 Bocas Surf School has been teaching surfing in Bocas del Toro. This retreat will include daily half day surf lessons right here at the surf camp.
Half day lessons will start in the morning from 9AM till 12PM. We will meet on the side of the deck of the surf camp where our school is located.
We include surfboard rental depending on your level of surf.
Our classes take place on the side of the hostel at our surf school where we would teach you the basics on surfing such as reading the waves, surf theory, and some surf etiquette. This lasts about 45 minutes and gets less as surfers progress, then we jump on our boat from the surf camp deck and go to the surf spot, it located about 5 min boat ride from our place. Here we tie our boat to the buoy and go surfing for about an hour and a half/ two hours.
