Surf Break at Paunch was built with the idea of simplicity & the desire to focus on what makes our property unique and special: the jungle & wildlife. Our rooms are comfortable, but simple and rustic – with the hopes that our guests feel comfortable and take the opportunity to focus on the beauty all around us and enjoy all that Bocas has to offer whether that be adventure or complete relaxation.
Our location allows you to get away, without having to completely “get away”. Most times the sound of the jungle and ocean are all you hear. There are no buildings in our immediate vicinity, which is particularly special at night as it allows you to enjoy the pristine, undisturbed beauty of the night stars and jungle sounds. And yet, we are conveniently located approximately half way between Bocas Town and Bluff Beach. Bocas Town is about 6 km away, which is only a 10 minute taxi ride or 30 minute bicycle ride. Bluff Beach is about the same distance. We provide bicycles for guests to use at no charge, so that you never feel isolated and are able to stay mobile and enjoying our surrounding attractions and venues.
There are three restaurants within walking distance (10 – 20 minutes), another four restaurants in biking distance (30 – 40 minutes). Taxis usually take about 15 – 20 minutes to arrive when called. If your looking to get around a bit faster than our bikes will carry you but don’t feel like relying on Taxis, you can rent ATVs at nearby Flying Pirates (within walking distance) or try out Bocas eBikes as other fun transportation options available to get around Isla Colon. There are even two places to rent surf boards within walking distance for beginners or those that cannot bring their own boards.
While you’re staying wth us, enjoy free breakfast overlooking the jungle canopy each morning, consisting of coffee or tea, juice or smoothie, a bowl of fresh tropical fruit and a main breakfast platter. Our menu changes regularly, but guests always have between 3 – 5 choices for their main breakfast platter each morning. Our dining area is open as a public restaurant 2 – 5 days a week – with the schedule changing by season. For more information on our food, our restaurant hours and other yummy dining options we recommend in our area, check out our Eat & Drink page.
We love having guests visit – whether that be guests staying with us or guests coming to dine at our restaurant. We focus on hosting events that provide our guests with experiences that are enhanced by our surroundings, such as yoga, as well as events that are unique to Bocas, such as our popular Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar.
