Geographic and Demographic facts of Bocas del Toro

Bocas del Toro is a province of Panama, comprising the mainland and nine main islands. The province consists of the Bocas del Toro Archipelago, Bahía Almirante, Laguna de Chiriquí, and adjacent mainland. The capital is the city of Bocas Town on Isla Colón.

The Bocas del Toro Archipelago is a group of islands in the northwest of the Caribbean Sea in Panama. The archipelago separates Bahía Almirante and Laguna de

Chiriquí from the open Caribbean Sea. The major city is Bocas del Toro, also called Bocas Town, on Isla Colón. The islands are accessible by water taxis and private boats. Isla Colón is accessible by airplanes, ferries, private boats, and water taxis. Bocas del Toro "Isla Colón" International Airport, located just west of Bocas Town, provides air transportation to and from the island to Panama City, San José, Costa Rica, and Changuinola city. The ferries serve Bocas Town from Almirante, Changuinola, and Chiriquí Grande.

The archipelago consists of Caribbean islands and waters with rich biodiversity and an ethnically diverse human population. Following a relatively stagnant economy from the 1930s to the 1990s, a tourism industry began to form in Bocas as a result of political and economic shifts. The Panamanian government promote foreign investment, resulting in the rapid development of Bocas del Toro as an exotic tropical tourist destination and a massive influx of tourists to the archipelago.
