I visited the Firefly with one of my girlfriends, without knowing what to expect. I booked the flight and tickets and figured i'll show up and explore a new country(checking Panama off the list of places I hadn't been yet). With a long day of travel, we finally arrived on the Island. Lauren personally escorted us to the Firefly. Wow.....

I came to the Firefly with my girlfriend to unwind and relax and that is exactly what I did......with a few adventures. Although it took a few planes and a boat to get there, once I did, it was definitely worth it! The owners Lauren and Ryan are amazing and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable...

Went w a group of 14 for a yoga/adventure week in Panama. A short boat ride from Bocas Del Toro puts you on Bastimentos where Firefly is located. Lauren the owner is known for her culinary skills and people come just to eat at the restaurant. Food was excellent. Staff was also super-helpful (thanks Tyler & Rene!) for figuring out...

By far one the most beautiful place I've stayed at. It's a tropical jungle paradise. We stayed in the Air Bungalow and the view was so picturesque and the breeze from the ocean right in front of us was refreshing being that you're in humid environment. From hammocks to the outdoor private shower- just so boho livin. loved it! The...

4th time at this super relaxing b&b, as usual the food, and the staff rocks. Tyler, and Hannah took great pains to make the most of our trip. Tula cooked us up some unforgettable tapas style meals. (I hope I didn't just destroy spelling of her name) we'll be back.

Our experience at the Firefly was one of many adventures. While it is not the most easily accessible place, the remote location, warm welcome, and rum punch certainly made up for it! Tyler and Hannah did a great job of serving us and we had a wonderful time getting to meet and befriend the other guests. The excursions with Rene...
