Surf Break at Paunch is located at Paunch Beach on Isla Colon in Bocas del Toro, Panama. We have four beautiful cabin-style roomswith amazing tree house like views. Here you can wake up to the sounds of Howler Monkeys and tropical birds and fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean from the nearby surf.
When you visit us, not only are you visiting an amazing tropical paradise with tons of unique wildlife, beautiful plants and landscapes, but also an epic surf spot right at our front door…with more amazing beaches and surf spots just a short walk, bike or boat ride away!
If you’re ready to start planning your amazing vacation to Bocas, go to our Stay With Us section to view more information and photos for each room, check availability and request a reservation now!
We hope to see you soon!
