    Gran Kahuna is BY FAR the best way to experience Bocus! Alex is an incredible host and just might be the nicest coolest man on this beautiful planet! Take it from someone who has backpacked through Panama many times you think Aqua Lounge will be fun but its WAY better to stay at Gran Kahuna and walk the 3 minutes to Aqua.

    Thanks Alex
