Finca Los Monos (tel. 757-9461, cell 6729-9943, US$10 pp) is a 23-acre tropical garden just north of the isthmus that separates Bocas town from the larger part of Isla Colón . Tours of the garden are given 1 P.M. Monday and 8:30 A.M. Friday, or by appointment. It’s beautiful, with carefully tended grounds. Howler monkeys, sloths, and lots of birds also like to visit the garden.
The turnoff is on the left between the Smithsonian and the i-griega intersection. It’s close to town, a short bike ride away. It should be possible to get a taxi from Bocas town for around US$1. Bring binoculars and sturdy footwear.
