ZAPATILLAS DIVE CENTER

Scuba dive in Panama : we are glad to offer our own diving tours and PADI courses at Al Natural Resort, in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro in Panama. We are taking small groups of divers to the protected reefs around the Zapatillas Cays in the national marine park. Also, there are the many nearby reefs inside the lagoon, including the very colorful soft coral gardens at Crawl Cay, and the large reefs on the open sea side of the island of Bastimentos, just behind the resort, where you can enjoy many impressive wall dives and cave explorations. The lagoon in front of Al Natural offers very enjoyable and safe waters to practice the PADI courses.

Dive in Panama : we are the only dive operator in the islands of Bocas del Toro who offers those dives regularly and who offers them at a competitive price due to our location, as we are far away from Bocas, but closest to the best dive sites and the Bastimentos National Marine Park in Bocas Del Toro. More remote trips to the famous Tiger Rock are also offered.

There is a 7% ITBM taxes to be added to the below prices.
