The Palmar Shuttle boat leaves three times daily from the Bastimentos Dock on Isla Colon (on the main street next to Bocas Marine Tours) at around 10 am, 12 pm and 4 pm. This service is free for guests and limited spaces are given on a first come, first served basis. If you need any help with your luggage, please make sure to arrive on one of these shuttles.
