To see the million-dollar beach pictured in the image above, first travel to Panama City. Leave the gold-leafed luxury of that bustling metropolis behind on a one-hour flight to Isla Colón, the hub of the nine-island Bocas del Toro chain in the Caribbean Sea. Make your way through the low-slung hamlet of Bocas Town — through open-air stalls selling molas from nearby San Blas and even past outdoor restaurants serving the day’s fresh catch — until you get to the busy marina. From there, catch a water taxi headed toward Bastimentos. The short jaunt will only cost a few bucks, which is a bargain considering the host of treasures that await. islabastimentos.com
