Our remote working community
The remote working community here in Bocas del Toro is very chill! You can’t help but feel relaxed when you’re living the Caribbean lifestyle. That doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get work done, though! Thankfully there are always people working hard in our coworking space so you won’t feel like you’re always missing out on a surf or a sunset.
The work-life balance is really good in Bocas del Toro and the community is amazing. People do come here to enjoy themselves and have a good time but people also know Selena is a great place to live and stay when they want to get work done as well.
One thing most nomads and remote workers love about working remotely here in Bocas del Toro is how accessible everything is. You can get some work done in the morning and then for lunch you can head over to La Neta Caribe with some friends and grab some food.
Even though it has that small island feel there are still cafes and our coworking space where you get work done. After work, there are plenty of restaurants and bars to hang out at with all the other remote workers.
It’s a small place but the community here is strong and there’s nothing better than being in a new place surrounded by other nomads and like-minded people!
Our Coworking Space
The goal of our coworking space here in Bocas del Toro has always been to create a balance between getting work done and having the opportunity to socialize and relax as well. We know it’s not always easy to get work done when you’re surrounded by beaches, surfing, and good times so we really do try to make it a place where you can be productive.
With unlimited coffee, high-speed internet, and comfy chairs this is a nice spot to work for anyone. With a chilled office vibe, there’s room to chat and network with other remote workers and also private rooms for when you need to have a meeting.
Whatever your remote-style setup looks like we’ll do our best to accommodate it!
The Surf near Bocas Del Toro, Panama
Bocas del Toro is an island on the Northwestern Caribbean Coast of Panama and is quite undiscovered when it comes to surfing – for now. It’s the Caribbean so you can expect laid-back vibes and that translates to the water too.
What sets Bocas del Toro apart when it comes to surfing is that there are more than 10 premiere waves within a short boat ride from the center of the island. The options are really endless and for the surfer who wants to ride it all, this is the place.
You have Bluff Beach which is a short 15-minute boat ride from Selena and this is where you’ll find one of the most famous breaks close to the island. Pros drool over this heavy wave that creates some wicked tubes!
For everyone else who's trying to really keep it chill and go with the Caribbean vibe then Old Mans and Black Rock are two awesome beginner spots that have perfect mini-point breaks and good whitewash to really get the hang of surfing in the Caribbean.
