We were newlyweds honeymooning in Bocas and stopped at The Blue Coconut for lunch during a fishing excursion. The food was great but even better was the hospitality of the staff and owner. If you want a place where locals go and a breathtaking view...More

We went there on the suggestion of someone whom we asked for a nice and safe place for the kids to snorkel. It was perfect! Short trip from Isla Colon with the water taxi, not many people (low season?), the restaurant gave us some masks....More

The Blue Coconut is a fun place to hang out! You can get a drink and hang out in the water until your food arrives. It is a short boat ride from Bocas Town and worth it. The crowd there is very laid back and...More

The Bar is 200feet out over the water with clear blue waters, colourful live coral, and spectacular snorkelling. There are two swim/tan platforms for customers to utilize with stairs going down into the water to make it that much easier. There are 2 chefs on staff that are more then willing to come out and explain the dishes or tailor them to your needs. The atmosphere is friendly, the food cheap, delicious and fresh and the drinks ice cold. Another thing to note is The Blue Coconut is completely off grid, so 100% solar powered and the outdoor shower uses rainwater. This means not only will you enjoy the food and drinks, but you're helping the environment at the same time! Salud and see you soon! Remember this is a solar run Resturaunt so it does take time to prepare and cook the food, we try for the 10-20 min order to table but if the restaurant is full it may take a little more time, we appreciate your patience.
