There are often both Howler and White Faced Capuchin monkeys as well as Sloths, Toucans, Parrots and other wildlife on the property. The Pool House is the perfect location to settle in and get comfortable in your own private space near the beach, wear yourself out all day exploring the islands, the beaches and the town. Surf, swim, snorkel, ride, eat, dance, and then fall asleep to the sound of the waves. There are three restaurants within walking distance of the cottage. Bocas Town, with many options for restaurants, shopping and nightlife, is a 10 minute taxi ride, or 30 minute bike ride away. More

About the neighbourhood
Paunch Beach is located on the main island of Bocas Del Toro, Isla Colon and is one of the more popular surf breaks in Bocas del Toro. It's just a short (10 minute) taxi ride from the airport and town and boasts the best surf spots in Bocas. The Pool House is just a few minutes walk from these amazing surf spots - Tiger Tail (2 minutes walk), Paunch Break (10 minutes walk) and Dumpers (15 minutes walk). Although reasonably close to town, Paunch has amazing wildlife right on it's doorstep. Here at The Pool House you're likely to be lucky enough to see monkeys, sloths and many types of birds including toucans and parrots.
Getting around
The easiest way to get to Paunch and around the island is by taxi which are readily available but you can also hire bicycles, quad bikes and even a 4x4 for the duration of your stay.
