About this listing
On the main Island of the archipelago Bocas del Toro, named Isla Colon, you'll find the Caribbean Cabanas Saigoncito`s. Saigoncito`s exists out of 10 rooms, divided into rooms, apartments and cabanas. All are situated on a small property, surrounded by lots of green and one cabana right next to the other.
The Caribbean cabanas are located in a small and friendly neighborhood, called Saigon. Quiet but meantime very lively and Caribbean! The population is a healthy mix of local people, expats and tourists. The Beach at la Cabana is around the corner and you're just a five minutes bike-ride away from Bocas Town. Bicycles are the way of transportation on the Island. You use them to explore the Island and the nearby beaches, to do your daily shopping, go on tours and out at night! For your comfort, and to make the experience completely local, bikes from Bocas Bicis are included with your stay.
Saigoncito`s Caribbean Cabanas are built in the Caribbean, colonial style that is widely seen in Bocas. The wooden cabanas stand on stilts, are colorfully painted and have spacious verandas with hammocks. The cabanas are surrounded by lots of trees and tropical plants. Fairly hidden in your hammock you'll enjoy the numerous visits of the hummingbirds to the garden while some local chicken are wandering around.
The cabanas are fully furnished and nicely decorated. Inside the cabanas you will find all the luxuries that you're familiar with at home: Wireless internet, satellite TV, a fully equipped kitchen, semi- orthopedic mattresses, security boxes, ceiling vans and warm water showers. If you want to know what life is like in Panama's Paradise, come to Saigoncito and find out!

Enjoy your stay at Panama´s Paradise Caribbean Cabañas Saigoncito´s!
If you're looking for a simple place to call home for a quick or extended stay, the Saigoncitos are a great fit. The kitchens are basic, but well equipped to cook your own meals. The property is quaint and cozy and well maintained. I was very impressed with the service. The staff even took a mid afternoon laundry request when I was flying out the next morning and had it laundered in just a few hours. Great please for the money!
The cabins are amazing. Bocas is a very interesting place, in that its a small laid back community on roughly a 10 acre island.
I stayed 3 nights at Saigoncito 4,5 and 6 with 5 of my friends and we had a great time at Jenny's place ! The casitas are located close from downtown Bocas and we were able to use the bikes that Jenny nicely provided us for these few days to go around the island. The rooms were clean, we had 2 kitchens stocked with plates, cups and a few ustensiles to cook with. We also enjoyed the fact of being able to all hang out together on the hammocks & sofas of the terrasse...
I hope you will enjoy your stay at Jenny's too !
