During the beautiful boat ride from Isla Colon to Dolphin Bay you'll get the chance to see the resident bottle nose dolphins in their natural habitat. Next we'll guide you through our chocolate farm on Isla San Cristobal & help you to spot sloths, poison dart frogs, monkeys, caymans, toucans & other birds while we harvest fresh cacao pods for you to taste & you'll learn more about the different types of cacao. We'll then make our way to our chocolate making room where you'll learn how to make chocolate & get to try our artisanally fermented & roasted cacao beans, as well as some of our fresh, made from scratch, chocolate bonbons in dark or milk chocolate. One of our milk chocolate bonbons won first prize on the Showcolate Fair in Bocas this year so we promise you'll be in chocolate heaven! Walking back to the boat, there's some time to greet the farm animals & explore the fruit trees & flowers in the garden. Before heading back to Isla Colon, we take you to our favorite snorkeling spot in Dolphin Bay: a magical underwater world hidden beneath a lush mangrove island. Explore sea gardens of sponges, anemones and starfish and spot majestic rays and the occasional octopus! Rain or shine, this is a unique adventure that will show you some of best things Bocas has to offer.

We've been organising fun unforgettable off-the-beaten-path outdoor activities in Dolphin Bay for our overnight Airbnb guests & we're excited to now be able to let more people discover our special corner in paradise! Papito is an experienced captain with extensive knowledge about the best spots around the islands & Dorien is an avid chocolate maker with a great interest in the local fauna & flora.
