Big Creek is perfectly located between Bluff Beach and Bocas Town. You have the best surf spots, snorkeling, and swimming beaches on your doorstep, as well as a nearby mini market and multiple restaurants to choose from - across the road is Skullys with 4 different restaurants, Ciao Pizza is next door, Dosha Organic cafe is 1 short walk down the road and at tiger tail surf break (8min walk away) is Paki Point. It is a beautiful peaceful area to go explore jungles, beaches, and cafes or surf at the famous Tiger Tail or Paunch Surf Break. We are located 15 min drive from the centre of Bocas Town, including the airport. The road from town takes you directly past our front gates.

The nearest beach is about 80m away, a quick stroll across the road. This is a small cove perfect for snorkelling and relaxing, sipping your morning coffee, a quick dip or if travelling with kids the perfect wave-free spot for kids to play and have fun.

We have parking spaces on the property as well as space to park your bikes or bicycles. Taxi's pass by the property frequently as we are situated just off Beach road. Buses pass every hour in either direction towards Playa Bluff or towards Bocas Town. We also have a number of reliable taxi drivers to call in any event. It costs $3 per person for a taxi ride from the centre of Bocas town/Airport to reach us. Biking around Bocas is a fun and economical way to get around, however the preferred choice for most visitors is to hire a quad bike or e-bike across the road and use this for the duration of their stay.

WiFi is not a high speed connection and is adequate for most functions. We are not yet geared up for remote working functionality that requires strong video support and can recommend some Co-working spaces in town that can support strong Internet connection.
