Where Panama’s northeastern Atlantic coast meets Costa Rica, it fragments into mangrove forests, lagoons and jungly islands. In Bocas del Toro, Tesoro Escondido sits on a rocky bluff near Bluff Beach. Accommodation is simple and hard to reach (with sporadic shuttles to Bocas del Toro town). Given the pack of barking pooches, you’ll need to like dogs, too. However, the surrounding forest and the brightly painted fishing-shack cabins create a barefoot, back-to-nature stay, complete with snorkeling over coral reefs, surfing and hiking.
