Tropical island beach & breakfast 

...with a personal touch

A message from the team at Doña Mara Beach Hotel

...To the wanderers

No matter where you are in the world or in what sector you work, no doubt you will have been affected by the current crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s a sad time when we are not able to wander. If we cannot – for the moment – wander physically, there is never any restriction on the roaming of our imaginations!

We are committed to the wanderers of the world – you are the life-blood of our business. We look forward to welcoming you again, hopefully soon! As part of this commitment, we are offering 20% off all direct bookings through to the end of the year, including Christmas and New Year week. We will also waive any cancellation fees for any bookings made through to the end of the year, with complete flexibility on date changes, bearing in mind we are all awaiting news on the lifting of flight bans and the recommencement of travel.

Thank you for supporting us in building a resilient and responsible tourism industry in Bocas del Toro, and for supporting our small, locally owned business.


Welcome to our natural island rhythm

‘Todo tiene su porqué’ – From a family holiday house on a small Caribbean island, Doña Mara today is a different type of B&B. We offer an unforgettable travel and dining experience right on the beachfront, with all the heart, flavor and feeling of Bocas del Toro.

Located on a small stretch of white sand beach on Carenero island, just a few minutes by boat from the main island Isla Colón, Doña Mara is the perfect place to appreciate the heart and soul of Bocas. We are a place created by friends and family. A place to share stories, celebrate life and feel a sense of place.

We have created something out of passion, and offer something that is more than a destination - Doña Mara is an unforgettable experience. As we like to say...

‘todo tiene su porqué…to find out what this means, well, you'll have to come and visit us! We'll be waiting by the dock.
