IN JANUARY 2012, THIS IMAGE WAS SELECTED RUNNER UP TO THE TRAVEL WORD’S PHOTO OF THE YEAR 2011.

The Bocas del Toro Archipelago is part of a province of the same name situated in the far west of Panama. The province shares a border with Costa Rica and for many young tourists travelling across the Americas, it is the true gateway to Panama.

There is a unique vibe about the archipelago, a bohemian calypso feel that even the hardest at heart will enjoy. It is a colourful island with much to do, be it just soaking in the sun or visiting nearby attractions.

The picture above was taken at Coral Cay (or Crawl Cay as it is locally known), about 20 minutes by boat from Isla Colón/Bocas Island. The Cay is appropriately named after the abundant coral reefs that surround it. It is one the best places to snorkel and a great place to have lunch if you wish to do so in a spectacular environment.

    Never thought that Panama has this great beach. I just love beaches and I think I should add another destination during summer. Thanks for posting this one. Now, I really believe that I can enjoy everything anywhere in the world. This is just great.
