The Caribbean’s Newest Overwater Bungalow Resort Is in Panama

It remains one of the great frontiers for Caribbean travel aficionados: Bocas del Toro, the spectacular archipelago in the Caribbean waters off the coast of Panama. 

For years, it’s also been home to the vast majority of overwater bungalow resorts in the region, at least until Sandals entered the space several years ago. 

But now there’s another significant new addition: Bocas Bali, a luxury overwater resort in the heart of Bocas del Toro.

The resort, which opened late last year, has a mix of 16 overwater villas, along with a 70-foot freshwater pool and an eatery called Elephant House.
