1 Week Spring Break Language Travel Itinerary for Bocas del Toro

Posted by |


Wherever you travel, please support local businesses who support local families. The suggestions featured on this blog post are locally owned businesses who put your tourist dollars in the right hands. If a tourist is your waiter, bartender or your tour guide (we know, go figure, but it's happening), you're probably doing more harm than good to our local communities.

I spent four months in Bocas del Toro and never ran out of things to do. What I love about this enchanting archipelago is that every island provides you with a new adventure and no two beaches are the same (and there are hundreds of them by the way).

With Spring Break around the corner, Habla Ya in Bocas del Toro has you covered with loads of epic adventures for after Spanish class (or before - if you're doing private lessons you'll probably have your mornings free, and if you do group classes, it'll be the afternoons).

And did I mention that in Bocas you'll find Panama's most authentic, everything goes, let your hair loose nightlife scene?

A la ocasión la pintan calva. Opportunity knocks only once.

But before we dig into specifics, just let me say that if you're staying for more than 1 week, try to go with the flow and you'll naturally find plenty of opportunities to make the most of your learning vacation with your newly made friends from all over the world, without forcing a strict itinerary. So yes, try to slow down, let the Bocas vibe take control and relax: you're in the Caribbean after all!

SO, here are my suggestions for taking full advantage of your week in Bocas...
