What is Breeze Card?

Breeze Card is a membership club that rewards the readers of The Bocas Breeze Newspaper and visitors of Bocas del Toro with exclusive benefits. Breeze Card members are able to enjoy discounts, promotions, special gifts and unique perks made available by The Bocas Breeze and its advertising partners.

The membership pass is a credit card sized ID made of bamboo (no more plastic for the island!) Some are calling it "The Wooden Key to the City."

Why is there a recycling symbol on the 2024 card?

The 2024 card is recycling and waste management themed.  Five percent of all sales will be donated to Unidos Por Bocas to be dedicated toward the island-changing impactful work of the Bocas Recycle Center. Another 5% will be set aside to fund Bocas Breeze articles and video content related to Bocas del Toro's waste management challenges and solutions.

Every year The Bocas Breeze chooses a different community cause to highlight with our Breeze Card program. The 2023 card with the raindrop highlighted public water challenges and supported the work of The Darkland's Foundation's Potable Water Program; rain catchment stations they are building in various communities in the archepelago that lack a proper public water supply. Breeze Card members raised $250 toward the next Potable Water Station they are building on Isla Popa.

Why participate in the 2024 Breeze Card program?

#1 The benefits! Exclusive discounts and promotions. Members also receive exclusive content via email and WhatsApp and behind-the-scene looks at the most impactful content we are producing.

#2 The savings! If you only take advantage of the deals occasionally throughout the year, you are sure to earn your investment back, and some!  "My husband and I saved nearly $300 with our Breeze Card! " - Jenny C, 2022. Jenny's review was based on two adults using it 2-3 times a month from April to October in Breeze Card's inaugural year.

#3 Support the work of Bocas del Toro's dedicated community newspaper! The success of this membership club aims to provide more resources to continue to serve our community; keeping everyone informed and sharing the wonders of Bocas del Toro to the world.

The Bocas Breeze is not just another advertising service. Our focus is community news and visitor information, which both require a ton of time and resources which cannot be funded by the advertising alone. We are calling on the once-a-year support of our readers!

We are dedicated to providing continued coverage to important community causes; the social, cultural, historical, environmental, educational and health initiatives that editorial team feels are in line with our vision for a "healthier, happier, well-informed, entertained and prosperous Bocas del Toro."

Though we may accept the occasional photo or article contributed by a traveler, for all paid work opportunities we are committed to hiring local talent. Your membership is an investment into Bocas del Toro's economy and our team's ability to do perform the duties of a dedicated community newspaper.

In short, Breeze Card is keeping Bocas del Toro's community newspaper alive.
