  • Description


    I am a dynamic guy from Panama city who likes to be active with a true passion for the ocean and traveling. I have been living in Bocas for 4 years now and it´s been more than one year that I am running my Bed and Breakfast at Isla Colon on the beautiful archipelago of Bocas del Toro. I like to keep a friendly, helpful and professional atmosphere at my B&B which is calm and relaxing with a couple of rooms to take care of.

  • Help


    We need basic help with the reception like Check-Ins and Check-Outs, taking care of bookings and reservations as well as giving information to the guests. Most importantly, we like to make them feel welcome and create a nice atmosphere, therefore it is preferred that somebody is always present during the day. Usually we work in two shifts a day: a morning and an evening shift. Besides that, we will ask you for tasks like maintaining the place, taking care of the laundry, painting or some light gardening.

    Spanish and English are required. As we have a lot of English speaking guests (75% of them) your language level has to be rather high. In addition, at least basic Spanish is necessary for the communication with locals and also with our staff.

    You need to know how to use the computer, as we use a synchronized system for our bookings and reservations.

    We offer you a double bed in a shared room next to the reception, a little isolated from the guests´ rooms. You are welcome to eat breakfast (cereals, fruits, coffee) and do your laundry during your stay here. Sometimes we also provide meals together and spend the evening with good music.
