hospital point, bocas del toro, snorkeling in bocas del toro, panama
Just off Colon Island and resting on the northwest tip of Nancy Cay (Solarte Island), lies Hospital Point. Once the central medical center for the United Fruit Company, which established its headquarters in Bocas del Toro in 1899, Hospital Point is now under private ownership and a popular tourist destination for divers and snorkelers.
Most tour operators include a stop at Hospital Point as part of their full-day tour. It is most often the last stop before returning to Bocas town. Anyone wanting to visit Hospital Point at their leisure can hire private water taxis, or rent a sit-on-top kayak by the hour, half-day, or full-day from any of the waterfront tour/dive operators. The water is normally quite calm, but it’s further away than it looks.Google Map - Hospital Point
