Red Frog Beach

BOCAS DEL TORO, Panama, Sept. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Escape this fall to Red Frog Beach Island Resort, a newly completed luxury villa retreat on beautiful Isla Bastimentos, overlooking unspoiled Caribbean beaches and miles of vibrant rainforest virtually unchanged since it was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1502. Red Frog offers the feel of staying in your own private island paradise yet affords easy access to the rich culture of the Bocas del Toro archipelago – including Feria del Mar ("Fair of the Sea") on neighboring Isla Colon, held each autumn for 50 years to celebrate Bocas del Toros' fishing and boating traditions.

This year's Feria del Mar begins on Wednesday, September 11, and culminates on Sunday, September 15 with island-community boat races which includes hand-built wooden Cayukos (canoes). During this uniquely original Bocas event, participants gather from the surrounding islands and only a handful of lucky tourists will experience the local food, crafts, music and dancing.

Feria del Mar is a great event for families as well as couples--with many daytime events and activities for children and a lively street party atmosphere at night.

Red Frog Beach offers spacious one- to six-bedroom villas and suites, set widely apart amid picturesque gardens and private pools, that range in price from just $149 to $1,071 per night (with All Inclusive packages available that include food and tours available).

Red Frog Beach is situated adjacent to a national marine park and overlooking protected rainforest and its namesake beach—designated as "One of the World's Best Secret Beaches" by The Travel Channel. Isla Bastimentos has also been named "One of the 10 Great Islands You've Never Heard Of!" by Budget Traveler. A host of onsite amenities meld with the fascinating history of explorers discovering this idyllic island paradise to create an enchanting, yet adventurous atmosphere. In addition to the spectacular beach, enjoy the resort's great adventure activities such as a thrilling, two-hour Zipline Rainforest Canopy Tour set at the top of the island, overlooking the vast Caribbean landscape. Or, explore abundant nature trails that lead to impossibly white-sandy beaches and encounter playful Capuchin monkeys, lazy tree sloths, squawking parrots and giant morpho butterflies. The resort also has a beachfront bar & grill as well as a full line of watersports equipment rentals available, including kayaks, stand up paddleboards, surfboards and boogie boards.

For those wishing to explore the natural beauty and rich culture of the 300 islets that make up the Bocas del Toro archipelago, Red Frog also offers more than a dozen New World Discovery Tours to the island's points of interest and neighboring keys. Set out by boat to visit dazzling island keys and gorgeous beaches, see dolphins jumping in wake, enjoy snorkeling amid colorful fish and reefs, visit a working chocolate farm, or explore underground caves. Guided fishing charters, horseback riding tours to indigenous Indian villages and surf lessons for beginners also are available.
