That should be the question! There are just no words that can describe the feeling you get when visiting in person.
Situated on the northwestern coast of Panama in and amongst the lagoon of Chiriqui, the atmosphere is simultaneously seductive, primitive, relaxing, alluring and adventurous!
Nestled at the edge of the pristine aqua sea amidst the lush, unspoiled vegetation, you can experience nature untouched. A truly unforgettable experience.
The medley of cultural diversity living in harmony with the indigenous, Western Caribe people is simple inspiring and their co-existence with nature is just as it should be.
To witness this first hand is something very few will ever have the privilege of doing.
Here you will be subject to the past, present and future of biodiversity. From the magnificent humid tropical forest, banana plantations and swamp forests, to the breathtaking coral reefs and seagrass meadows, this majestic ecosystem is truly unique.
Quite a few steps above Geography 101!
You will find colorful wooden houses, spectacular uncrowded beaches, fabulous local and International cuisine and excellent accommodation, such as ours, of course :-)
As well, you can play with the dolphins in Dolphin Bay, go scuba diving, surfing and swimming or enjoy the infamous riverboat jungle tour to visit the indigenous Ngobe Bugle India Village.
Numerous places are only accessible by boat, which makes them that much more exciting!
