Store your luggage around Bastimento with Bounce

Bastimento is an island on Panama's Caribbean coast. Way up in the north of the country, close to the border with Costa Rica, Bastimento is a popular location with those visiting Bocas del Toro since the two islands are right next to one another and together form an incredible experience of Panama off the beaten path. It's a long way from Panama City to here, and yet thousands of tourists make the journey every year to soak up the sun, sea, and sand on one of the country's biggest island retreats.

Bastimento offers a slower pace of life and an authentic experience of Panama away from the tourist crowds. Along with Bocas del Toro, Bastimento is an idyllic location that is packed with outdoor activities. Eco-tours, scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, fishing, hiking, and more await those who take the trouble to reach this isolated location. Home to iconic locations like Red Frog Beach and its popular resort, Bastimento is the perfect place to unwind and take a break from whatever you've left behind.

But in this outdoorsy place, you'll have a much better time if you don't carry more than you need to. Leave your bags behind at a convenient luggage storage facility before you hit the beach or head out on an excursion to enjoy everything these islands have to offer. Traveling light makes it far easier to get the most out of Bastimento and its surroundings.

Luggage storage in Bastimento

Bounce partners with local businesses in Bastimento, Bocas del Toro, and around the world to make sure that you always have a place to store your things.

Bastimento city guide

Top things to do in Bastimento

Bastimento is all about the great outdoors. But that's not to say there's nothing to do here unless you're an adrenaline junkie. If lying on the beach all day isn't your idea of a good time, you may be in the wrong place. But even the most committed beach bunny can't lie in the sun forever. It's a good thing, then, that Bastimento offers some things to do that don't involve putting on a swimsuit.

Museums in Bastimento

Bastimento is not the kind of place where people come to learn about history, so the island itself doesn't have any museums. However, you don't have to travel far to find some cultural highlights. Off island, check out some of these establishments:

  • Museo Cultural: Located just a short boat ride away in Bocas del Toro, this museum examines the culture of these islands from the indigenous past through the Spanish colonization era to the present day. There's also an interesting exhibit on the history of Chinese immigration to these islands.
  • Museo Regional de Gualaca: Located quite a long drive inland from Bastimento and Bocas del Toro, this regional museum examines the history of the area from the earliest archaeological record through Spanish colonization up to the present day. If the weather doesn't cooperate and you're looking for an educational experience, it might be worth the journey to this museum to learn more about the region.
  • Museo del Barrio y Antigüedades La Casona: In the city of David, this museum is a substantial distance from Bastimento, but it is one of the cultural highlights of the area. The museum examines the 20th-century history of the Chiriqui region, a turbulent time in Panamanian history that helps to explain more about why the country is the way it is today. If you're heading into David anyway, it's well worth considering visiting this intriguing museum.

Shopping in Bastimento

Part of the charm of Bastimento is that it is relatively undeveloped. Therefore, you shouldn't expect to find shopping malls and fashion boutiques here. However, if you look around, you will find a few places where you can pick up souvenirs and anything else you might need.

  • Hill Organic Coffee Farm: This working coffee farm is a great place to take a tour and learn more about coffee production in the area. But its gift shop is also an excellent place to pick up local coffee that's the perfect souvenir of your Panama trip.
  • Red Frog Deli Gourmet: One of the only grocery stores on Bastimento, this is the place to pick up snacks, drinks, sunscreen, and anything else you need on the island.

Restaurants in Bastimento

Bastimento doesn't have hundreds of restaurants to choose from, but it does have a decent selection of places to eat that provide something for just about everyone. Try some of these popular restaurants if you're looking for something to eat on the island. And if none of these are quite what you're looking for, it's only a short boat ride to Bocas del Toro to get a greater range of eating establishments.

  • The Blue Coconut: Forget waterside. This restaurant is built on pilings rising out of the ocean itself. Roofed with thatch, it's about as classically tropical as you could want. Enjoy fresh seafood caught that morning washed down with ice-cold beer as you listen to the waves murmur underneath your chair, and you'll be experiencing your own island paradise while you eat.
  • Eclypse de Mar Restaurant: Attached to a hotel right at the water's edge, this restaurant provides excellent seafood along with beautiful views over the ocean. Although it's a little pricier than most of the restaurants in Bastimento, the location and the freshness of the food on offer here are hard to beat.
  • Nachyo Momma's Taco Bar: Located on the north side of the island close to Red Frog Beach, this Mexican restaurant is tucked away behind the trees but rewards those who take the trouble to find it with delicious Mexican food made with the freshest ingredients.


Bastimento is the perfect place to get away from it all. You'll find most of the services you need either on the island itself or in nearby Bocas del Toro, including luggage storage.
