If you think jumping off a 10 foot Diving Board into a crystal clear Lagoon is a good way to start your day, our DIving Booard Room is for you!

Our Eco-Retreat is one of Bocas Del Toro's best kept secrets. Located on the southern tip of Isla San Cristobal, the cabin is perched above a coral Reef. Fully engage with nature while enjoying the comforts of rustic charm.

The space
Welcome to the beautiful island of San Cristobal!!!!

The diving board is literally steps from your bed - even if you don't want to jump, the view straight down is amazing.

This little thatch covered loft is best for adventurous souls! Rustic living style where you can choose to be with, or away from technology! (yes, we have Wifi!)

The island has no roads or electricity but we do have solar panels and clean rainwater on tap.

Beneath you, there is lots of marine life: the water is teeming with our pet fish, swarms of sardines, starfish, sea cucumbers, anemones, dolphins (see them during the day, hear them at night), amazing coral and bioluminescent plankton at night!

We offer deliciously prepared meals at a reasonable additional charge for our guests - please share your dietary restrictions so we can accomodate you best.

There is a refreshing shower (biodegradable soap only, please!) at the cabin, and the composting toilet is a 2 minute walk, on the land.

A 5 minute boat ride (or half an hour kayak or an hour swim :-)) takes you across the bay where you can buy (limited!) supplies from a shop or visit Ernie for his famous fried chicken.

A 30-minute each way, $60 round trip boat ride will take you to the town of Bocas del Toro, which has over a dozen bars and restaurants, a fun backpacker party scene, some very good food, some not-so-good food, an airport, several small supermarkets, local fruit and vegetable stands, and lots of local color and diversity. A similar boat trip will take you to the mainland (Almirante), a jumping off point for extended trips to Panama's incredible cloud forest or Costa Rica.

Yep...There's much to do and see and experience!!

Guest access
Guests will experience this fun little hut , while having access to the communal dock, equipped with Bar, Meal Service ( for guests only), Lounge.

Other things to note
!!! IMPORTANT: THIS IS A RUSTIC PLACE, NOT A RESORT !!!

It's for the adventurous, who want reasonable comfort in a remote setting, and want to experience realities of rural life in the tropics. In addition to the abundant pleasures of the lush forests and reefs, you should expect to…..

GO OFF GRID: You will run out of running water if you take long showers or if the rains don't come. The solar panels are backed by a generator, but you'll need to remember to turn off lights and fans when not in use — especially when the clouds hang out for a few days.

WEAR BUG PROTECTION: We are bug conscious in the design of our accommodations. That being said, a layer of coconut oil, or bug spray can keep you comfortable during "Chitra Hour" when the no-see-ums come out at dawn and dusk. These critters are generally predictable, so its easy to be prepared

Bocas del Toro District, Bocas del Toro, Panama

This neighborhood is WILD!

You really become PART of the eco-system when you stay with us.

We take sharing this paradise very seriously and we want to keep it comfortable for our animal neighbors too. The Fish, the Dolphins, the Sloths, the Howler Monkeys, the Herons, the Parrots, the kinkajous and the Iguanas were all here before us, and luckily still are. Please remember to bring bio-degradable soaps and bug sprays, and to be conscious of the trash you bring on site.

We love exploring the world and its people, ideas, and minds. In 2002, while driving from California to Patagonia, Ulrich fell in love with Bocas del Toro and bought a semi-abandoned cattle farm on the shore of a remote tropical island. Together with locals, we planted thousands of trees, all native species, to help offset the CO2 emissions my travels have produced, to restore the degraded environment, and to give future generations access to the beautiful hardwood lumber that used to be plentiful in Bocas. Now that we have restored the land to a healthy, balanced ecosystem, together with some amazing friends, we set up a unique eco retreat, an experiment in combining the inspiring experience of raw nature and life in the tropics with amenities that make the place accessible for adventurous spirits who want to experience a different lifestyle, for days, weeks, or month. Come visit!

During your stay
This cabin is above a shared space - if sleeping in is a priority, please check out our other spaces.

We are here to answer any questions guests may have about the area, and off the grid living.

We provide a round trip 'Ride Share' service to our remote location for 40$ included in the cleaning fee. To participate in this reduced price transport we ask that guests co-operate with the arrivals and departures of others, this could mean taking a short water taxi to the decided meeting point or being flexible with pick up times. If you would like to be picked up at a specific time we can refer you to a water taxi, or pick you up personally for an extra fee. The Ride share meets in Bocas Town, but transports to Almirante are some times possible if requested in advance.
