Like you I went to Star Fish beach for the day 2 years ago. No bars, no music, I remember about 6 or 8 people , it was perfect. Then I returned last month. It was HORRIBLE I couldn’t believe how the local authority could allow such a wonderful peaceful environmental friendly beach could be ruined in such a way. The music was terrible the beach bars full of drunken tourists. I left after 10 minutes and will never return. Equally Bocas town was fully of trash and the smell hung all over the town. From being some place I really adored they have turned it into a place i never will return to. Shame on you all who run this town and have turned it into a hell hole.
