Carenero Island is the closest of the outer islands to Bocas Town. Only a few minutes away by boat, it’s easy to get to, and also fairly small. You can hike around the entire island in about an hour.
You can do a lots of activities; some of the best beginner surf spots can be found here as well as the best surf on the islands. Carenero Point is one of the longest lefts in Bocas del Toro and can offer perfect tubes when conditions are working.
Standup Paddling is an unforgettable way to see the coral reef around Carenero. Rent an SUP from Bibi’s on the Beach and paddle around Carenero and see its colorful reefs filled with sea critters.
To get there, you can simply take a boat from the center of Bocas town on Isla Colon (the main island).
Boat drivers will charge you $2 one way to get there, and it takes about 4 minutes to arrive.
