At the gates of Dolphin Bay, 20 minutes by boat from the main town of Bocas Del Toro, awaits a Caribbean investment to get excited about, a turn key Boutique Hotel apropriately named ‘Dolphin Blue Paradise‘. Offering optimal comfort at the bay’s edge where Dolphins play, the hotel is comprised of private cabanas and an over the water restaurant and home. Centered around relaxation and exploration, guests snorkle the near by reefs and paddle the calm bay via stand up paddle boards and kayaks to see the resident pod of dolphins up close. The hotel is committed to, and fully opperating on green and sustainable energy, this turn key business aims to preserve our planet.



Dolphin Bay Bocas Del Toro, is protected from the open Caribbean Sea by layers of islands, offering the gift of calm waters nearly every day of the year.  The bay is surrounded by tufts of mangroves, which draw an abundance of small fish and crustaceans into the water. These two environmental traits make Dolphin Bay a perfect habitat for you guessed it- dolphins!

The human residents in the surrounding Lagoons have the opportunity to know this permanent pod of inshore Dolphins, as though they are neighbors passing daily by boat, or waving from their docks. Celebrations when new babies are born and chats about pod members with identifiable features are common place around the dinner tables at the restaurant of the Dolphin Bay Boutique Hotel.
