          Hello, I have booked a room for my daughter and I (April 7, 1 night) and we will be arriving in Boco del Toro by the Caribe Shuttle. My question is: How do we hire a boat to bring us to your property? And do you know what the cost is? Many thanks!! Lori Adams

          There are many boat taxi's available to take you across the water. It is a short distance - so usually the cost is less than $2 but be sure and ask ahead of time.
