Polo's Paradise: Day Hike


Polo's Paradise: Day Hike


Polo Beach is the most beautiful beach on Bastimentos and perhaps even in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago. Now you too can enjoy this little piece of paradise by joining us on Polo's ParadiseMadness tour.

number of inhabitants: 1, Mr. Polo.

at 11:00 we take off from the Bastimentos Alive tour center and walk through Old Bank into the jungle. Our first stop is a tropical fruits farm and botanical garden called Luminescence, where we see, smell and taste some of the rarest fruits known to mankind. After this amazing experience we continue the trail over farmland, valleys and witness stunning views of Bastimentos. We sit down on Gabriellito Hill and have a little fruit snack while enjoying the view of the Caribbean Sea.  Along the way we explain about the island life, see wildlife and around 14:00 we arrive at Polo Beach.

Polo Beach is inhabited by one person, Polo. Although the stories vary, Polo has been living on the beach for about 56 years and lives of the jungle. Ones we arrive, your guide will help out Polo with preparing a nice lunch for you.

For about 3 hours you have the freedom to snorkel around the reef right in front of the beach, walk along one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, hang out with Polo, discover more of the jungle or simply lay down and enjoy the day.

At approximately 16:30 we head to Red Frog Beach where we take a boat back to Old Bank and arrive back to the tour center.

Bastimentos Alive will take care of all the necessities, so you can have a day without worries.
