The second is where the cliffs are; the sea played the role of sculptor, creating magnificent navigable arches and incredible natural sceneries. In this area there are small beaches, formed when the sea erodes the stone. This is where this magical place is found that the Ngöbe-Buglé call ¨the virgin cave ”. There is a hidden beach here which has been found under a natural roof over the centuries, and where all visitors take the mandatory picture during their stay!
The third are the estuaries, where the landscape is very impressive because it combines the beauty of the crystalline waters and the white sand with the thickness of the forest, whose green is reflected on the water, merging with the blue of the sky to create a mixture and contrast that is so unique to describe. Here one can observe the unique pigmented sloth.
The fourth part is that of the small beaches that seem to have been designed and built following instructions to create a paradise.
Bocas del Toro is the sanctuary for many species of endangered birds, manatees, freshwater turtles and the poison dart frog found in this area.
