Absolutely private, set amongst the jungle, our little house has everything you need. small kitchenette, huge private hot water bathroom, queen size bed that looks directly through the trees to the Caribbean Sea. It's the perfect getaway! We even jnclude breakfast in our Vegan restaurant. Quiet and peaceful, you'll love it!

The space
The cabin comfortably sleeps 2 people but we can put an extra single bed in the main kitchen/dining area. Open plan kitchenette has a small fridge, little oven/grill, cooktop, coffee maker, kettle and all utensils. Its a holiday so you don't want to cook a three course meal (leave that to me in my restaurant) but it's perfect to save some money and obviously keep some beers cold! The bathroom is fantastic, its truly a huge shower with hot water, which is a rarity here on the island. The bedroom has a queen bed and looks directly out through the trees to the Caribbean sea below us. A wrap around verandah gives you afded space and brings the jungle to you.

Where you’ll be

Bastimento, Panama

The Neighborhood

Isla Bastimentos is the largest of the islands in the Archipielago De Bocas Del Toro. Surrounded by the Caribbean Ocean, Bastimentos, with it’s distinctive Jamaican feel has no roads, so no cars.

The people here are characters. Of West Indian descent, they are warm & friendly with that relaxed Caribbean vibe. Loud music, laughter & Gali-Gali (a mix of Spanish-English Creole that is native to the island) can be heard as you walk around the town of Old Bank. They love a good time and celebrations are taken seriously! Be prepared to be invited in for a drink & something to eat.

Walk through lush tropical jungles, where sloths lazily hang from trees, to reach amazing beaches. The brightly coloured but poisonous, Red Dart frog is also found here. Hiding amongst leaf litter and inside the well of Bromeliads, it’s toxic skin is attributed to a diet rich in formicine ants.

The Parque Nacional Marino was Panama’s first marine park. Established in 1988, it protects various areas of the Bocas Del Toro archipelago including parts of Bastimentos & the Cayos Zapatillas.

Diving or snorkelling the coral reefs and mangroves is an unforgettable experience. A multitude of starfish of various shapes & colours are just below the surface of the clear blue waters. Soft corals and sponges fill the calm, warm waters known as the Galapagos of the Caribbean.

With 4 of the world’s 8 species of sea turtles; loggerheads from April to September, leatherbacks in May & June, hawksbills in July & green turtles in July & August coming ashore to nest, it truly is paradise.

The Ngobe-Bugle village is at the end of a long canal cut through the mangrove forest. Living in wooden, thatched roofed huts with no electricity or running water, the indigenious villagers still practice subsistence farming.Travelling to nearby islands is by hand-crafted canoes. There is a school and a handicrafts store where hand made colourful woven bags & jewellery can be bought.

Surf??? Basti has it all; reef breaks, beach breaks, incredible waves!

That dream of paradise is real and it’s here on Bastimentos where life is ever rushed. So, grab your swimsuit & toothbrush, leave your ‘hurries’ at home and step into island life!
