El Jaguar

Hostal el Jaguar sits above the blue waters of the Caribbean on Bastimentos Island, in a string of islands in Bocas del Toro, Panama.

The Jaguar is a fourth generation local of Bastimentos and is a school teacher here on the island. He plays music at night for the Hostal and will show you how ceviche is supposed to be done.


The hostal is a welcoming place for any type of traveler, vacationers and backpackers, alike. Come enjoy the soothing waters of the Caribbean and see what Bastimentos has to offer you.


We offer many tours from visits to Wizard and Red Frog beach to Zapitilla (an area great for snorkeling) as well as a local cave tour.


Come enjoy Panama, the island way!


“Private room with private bathroom. Was clean, good size and the best and pillows were amazing. Window shutters open out over the water and at night can hear the water lapping under the building. Hammocks on the deck to relax in and a good location on the island. Really tranquil place and perfect for relaxation.”
