Nomad Tree Lodge isn’t for everyone… Off-grid terrain and climbing 60 stairs to your cabin high in the RAINforest jungle canopy isn’t for everyone. Water conservation and eco conscious traveling isn’t for everyone. Walking to the islands best shallow reef break isn’t for everyone. It’s for anyone looking to escape the 4 walls of a hotel room and experience something truly unique. Nomad Tree Lodge is for the wanderers, the seekers; is it for you?

“We had an absolutely amazing time in Bocas del toro and that was largely thanks to Nomad. The place is idyllic, set back in a forest with a quick walk to great surf. We couldn’t have felt more welcomed and met great people while staying there. The rooms are simple, tasteful and incredibly comfortable. Everyone who works there is super friendly and really help make the great vibe and atmosphere of the place. Thank you to everyone for making our stay what it was. When we come back to the amazing Bocas, we’ll be going straight to Nomad. Gracias.”
Come to discover a new concept of eco-lodge in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro ... live in a floating cabin! You will have all the comforts and activities possible in this little lost paradise !
“We ended our 2 week trip to Bocas with a couple of nights in the floating lodge which was a really unique experience. 2 nights for us was perfect to enjoy the quiet and seclusion although everywhere was just a boat ride with Eric away if you decided to venture out. Since it was $50 for a round trip to Bocas Town and $30 each way for pick up/drop off that could get a bit pricey so I'd probably say most people would enjoy this place best if they were done with Bocas Town and staying on the other islands or headed there afterwards. The included breakfast was very simple (jam and bread with a smoothie - one of the best smoothies I've ever had!), but you could add on some extra items (eggs, ham, etc) for more $ if needed. Prices in the store for beer and wine were very reasonable, and dinner was a fair price given the location of the property and Karine's cooking was great - really appreciated her accommodating to a vegetarian diet on request! Communication to contact them during our stay was through Whats App which we had some issues with on the first day since the wifi was not really working, but Eric made some router adjustments and everything was smooth after that on day 2. Karine is one of the sweetest hosts we have ever had and the entire property is very very interesting (ask Eric to try to find sloths for you - quick boat ride away!) The room was a fine temperature for sleeping with just the fans, bed was extremely comfortable and clean, fridge was great to have, and we did not mind that the showers are cold water ones. During the day was really great - we snorkeled right off the cabin, tried stand up paddle boarding, kayaked a little bit, and just relaxed and read off the deck. Once the sun is down it is totally dark and quiet - we had ordered dinner for 7:00 the first night thinking it would give us something to do that evening, but I'd probably recommend eating dinner while it's still a bit light out - there are a lot of very curious little lizards that come out to see what's on the menu and hang out in the light after dark (counted 17 at one point on the outdoor wall beside us!) This didn't bother us, but it was a more relaxed dinner for sure the next night when we ate with the sun still up and then just read our books afterwards. Was the perfect end to a great two weeks in Bocas when we were looking for some R&R, highly recommended!”
Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and wake up to the sound of the waves. Our bright and simple cabins are built on 14 feet stilts to get you closer to the tree canopy and its wildlife - its feels like a tree-house, totally immersed in lush nature! Ideal for: surfers, beach lovers, explorers, day-dreamers! Outside of Bocas town (3.7mi) close enough for nights outs, groceries and tours but far enough for tranquility, privacy and secluded coves. Be barefoot & free!
“First of all, you really get the jungle experience at Paunch. A howler monkey was 5 meters from our kitchen window on our second day. We had a well appointed cabin with all the conveniences we needed. Our cabin was above a little stream. We slept to the lullaby of jungle sounds. There was a huge buttress tree in full view from our deck. Max and Jane are friendly, thoughtful, and always looking for ways to make your stay enjoyable. The local bus was okay, but we relied more on the local taxis. The rates were reasonable and the drivers were friendly. I would highly recommend this Airbnb if you are wanting to get away from it all. The cabins are away from the hustle and bustle of Bocas Town yet easy to reach in a few minutes. Totally relaxing. Lots to see and do. No regrets. Great experience.”
