Bucaro is a small lonesome, picturesque and lively fishing village in Panama, which is located at the estuary of the river Tonosi

directly at the Pacific and not mentioned on most maps of Panama. This region around Bucaro is also called Tuna Coast. The fishing boats continuously cast off to sea to meet the entire country’s demand for tuna and to supply the markets. The main customer of tuna is Panama-City with its large markets. You will need about five hours to go there. Bucaro has a large beach which is ideal for swimming and surfing. Its breakers are highly appreciated by the surfers. Boats leaving from the port invite you to deep sea fishing and tours to the river Tonosi and the island Isla Canas. While a lot of birds, moneys and other wild animals can be observed in the back-country, you may watch crocodiles at the river bank. Cambutal, Pedasi and Las Tablas are in a distance of about one hour. Tonosi is about 15 minutes away from Bucaro. Walking from there to the beach of Bucaro, you may enjoy a great view. In any case it is worth visiting this lonesome and simultaneously lovely town.
