All of our rooms are simple with all handmade, custom furniture, small detailed amenities to make your stay comfortable, and queen sized beds with soft sheets. Each room features high quality linens, beach towels, private bathrooms with large stand up hot water showers, mosquito nets and room safes. Ceiling or floor fans come in each room – combined with the breeze from the ocean up to our hill helps you stay cool at night.

Free breakfast is provided each morning, which includes fresh fruit, a different specialty breakfast taco available each day, your choice of juice or smoothie and Panamanian coffee or tea.

Free breakfast daily

Each room has a guide book, to help with house rules and general information, recommendations, local emergency contacts, and other information to help you get around and enjoy Bocas del Toro!

Toiletries are available upon request, and we provide all guests with free bicycles (up to 2 per room) to make your stay more convenient.

As we are on a rain water catchment system, we try to conserve water as much as possible, and thus we change linens after every 3rd night of your stay, unless requested or discussed otherwise. However, free daily housekeeping is an option upon request – we will check with you each morning at breakfast to see what is needed. We respect our guests privacy and we will not enter your room unless it has been discussed in advance.

We live onsite, on the 2nd floor of the main house. We are always around on the property from 7am – 2pm (until Noon on Mondays and Tuesdays), in case you have any questions or need help with anything.  After that, we can be reached by cell phone.

Surf Break at Paunch is not for everyone.  We are a small operation, in a private, quiet area outside of town, with sounds of nature and wildlife around us at all times.  Before you make a reservation, be sure to read through the Travel Tips section as well as the Policies and House Rules page to be sure Surf Break at Paunch will be a good fit for you and so that you are aware of what to bring, what to expect, etc.
