We came to Casa Acuario for four nights with a backpacking tour group. The stay was the highlight of my trip. The inn is right over turquoise blue waters, the rooms are rustic and charming with ac and hot water, each room has a small deck area with a hammock, and there is a hangout area with wifi at the...

This is a beautiful place to stay, great location, friendly and welcoming. It is right on the water, with crystal clear emerald water all around, and a small but nice beach right next to the hotel. The rooms are big and comfortable, very clean, hot water and AC. It's a $1, 2-minute boat ride to Bocas town, but you are... More

Casa Acuario is a beautiful place to stay. It is right on the water, the rooms are clean, there is hot water, a/c and WiFi in the back area of the dock. Unfortunately this back area also is a sand fly hangout zone so make sure you get citronella oil to avoid being bit. We had no issues with anything... More

the place was really good, the view just awesome. We enjoyed spacious room in front of the sea. Be able to jump in the crystal clear blue water from Carraib from your room is just paradise. The atmosphere is rilax and you'll get the possibility to have a nice breakfast. NEGATIVE: Only negative point, even if the staff is really... More

We stayed at Casa Acuario for 6 nights. We flew from Panama City to Bocas del Toro. We took a taxi at the Bocas Airport for $4US that took us to the water taxi area. The trip from Bocas Town to the Carenero Island where the Casa Acuario is located is very short and it costs $1/person. The reason why... More

It's always a shame to read bad reviews of a placed you liked....... We stayed here in Mid April, probably considered shoulder season, so there was no problem about being bumped into another (lesser?) room.

We got there at 2 pm and nobody was at the hotel. After 10 min waiting a woman showed up and without saying anything, she went upstairs to clean our room. She could have said that they were not expecting us so soon, but the room will be ready in a few minutes, but instead... she just disappeared. I can... More

This is a lovely place with friendly people - but unfortunately although we booked our room 2 1/2 months previously, we were not given the room we'd requested. We expected to have one of the front rooms on the water but were given a back room with no view ... It's not even visible or listed on the hotel's website... More

We decided to stay in Casa Acuario as we wanted to have both Bocas Town and some nice beaches near at hand. With water taxis never more than a minute's wait away, this worked, beaches on Caranero (beyond Bibis in particular) being lovely spots. There are some drawbacks. Walls are paper thin here, the wifi is poor in the rooms... More
