This review is a little late, but I couldn't forget to review one of the most amazing places I've ever stayed (and I travel a lot!). My boyfriend and I stayed at Popa Paradise from May 23-26, after spending 3 days in Panama City. This was a great end to our already fantastic vacation. Everything was on point, from the...

We visited Popa Paradise the first weekend in May and had a fantastic time there. Popa Paradise is an all-inclusive resort on an sparsely populated Island. The hotel managers Dillon and Darion make certain that everyone feels welcomed and are extremely personable and entertaining. We started our journey to the island following a torrential downpour at the dock, delaying the...

My husband and I stayed 4 days, June 8-11, and we had a wonderful experience. I would say "stay" as is used in hotel reviews; however, "experience" seems to fit! We arrived on air Panama, were met by a representative who took us directly to the boat, and Nash then zoomed us across the beautiful water (very calm), to Isla...

My wife and I visited Popa Paradise in mid April and I spend time daydreaming about going back. It is an adventure to get there and that is a portion of the joy we found there.

We stayed at Popa Paradise in May of 2014. I cannot say enough good things about this place. The location is gorgeous, on an island off the coast of Bocas del Toro. It is a bit of an adventure to get to as you have to fly to the small Bocas airport and then take a van to a dock...

We stayed at Popa Paradise for our honeymoon last week and we absolutely couldn't believe how great this place is. We decided early that we wanted to honeymoon in Bocas del Toro, but then struggled to find the right hotel. We were looking for something off the beaten path, with great food (but also flexible to our largely vegan diet),...

My husband and I spent 3 nights here and begged for one more but they were already booked up and no wonder: the degree of service here is impeccable, and the grounds are lovely. We had the luck to score the casita right near the water and were here at a time with at most 4 other guests so we...

My wife and I spent several days in Panama, and 3 days / nights at Popa Paradise. You might be suspicious of the unusual high rating for the hotel, but I can tell you that it is deserved.

We went to Popa Paradise in April 2014. You have to fly out of Albert Brooks airport (Domestic airport in Panama) to get there (Bocas Del Toro). It takes about 1 hour.
