Solo travel experience

Bocas Del Toro is truly a magical place with great food, nightlife, beaches, nature, people and experiences. I couldn’t of picked a better location for my first solo trip and I wish I didn’t have to leave. I felt very safe during the entire trip even when going out by myself. I met plenty of other female solo travellers mostly at the hostels I stayed in. I highly recommend staying at Bambuda Lodge, they offer a communal dinner every night, which is a great way to meet other travellers. They offer plenty of free and inexpensive activities, including a jungle hike every morning, snorkelling, boat tours, and my personal favorite; a 150 ft water slide going into the ocean. Honestly, the highlight of my trip was staying at Bambuda Lodge and it is truly a magical place that I highly recommend to anyone!!
