You don’t expect Panama’s most famous beaches to push you out of your comfort zone, but that’s entirely possible in the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Step away from the water and set out on your own Indiana Jones-style adventure to La Gruta, the other hidden gem of Bocas del Toro…a bat cave.
Unlike most caves which are frozen relics of past adventures, everything is alive in this underground cavern. This isn’t an experience for the faint of heart: The adventure begins in the dense jungle en route, and ends in the pitch-black caves filled with bats, spiders and other terrifying creatures.
For a real adventure that pushes you out of comfort zone, watch Peter’s latest Hidden Gems of Panama.
