This secluded loft-style treehouse sits on stilts above the water, 30 feet from our colorful coral reef. Transparent and airy but bug proof walls let you enjoy the fresh ocean breeze and views while keeping you safe and cozy. When a sloth comes to visit, no need to leave the house to see him! Blend in with the surroundings of mangrove, lagoon and jungle, and enjoy water and reef access from your own deck. Bright and airy, 100% eco-conscious.

The space
Located on the southern tip of Isla San Cristobal, a remote and tropical island, with no roads. Here you will find a healthy coral reef and 55 acres of jungle for you to explore.

The Mangrove Treehouse is a loft-style house perched above the water and tucked in amongst the mangroves. The transparent and bug-proof walls offer a stunning 360 degree view of the lagoon and the back yard jungle.

The house is a split level design, that can accommodate up to 5 people. Upstairs is a king sized bed surrounded by curtains for your privacy, there is also a hammock there for your ultimate relaxation, that can be exchanged for a single bed for the 5th guest. On the ground floor, there is a king sized convertible couch, perfect for a second couple or your kids.

The kitchen is equipped with a propane stove, a fridge and the basic kitchen necessities should you decide to cook for yourself.

If you would like to join us on the communal dock, we offer group meal services upon request, menus depend on available local ingredients and the taste of our guests.

There is a small bathroom within the house for your convenience. In order to protect the reef however, we encourage the use of the composting toilet outside- for your longer bathroom visits ;) The bamboo shower is also outside, with 180 degree view of the surrounding jungle. Please bring Bio-degradable soap, and be conscious of water and electricity use, as we are all sharing our rain catchment and solar system.

Where you’ll be

Provincia de Bocas del Toro, Panama

This neighborhood is WILD!

You really become PART of the eco-system when you stay at CocoVivo.

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 be conscious of trash you bring; remember that cold beer and soda are available for a reasonable price, in bottles that will be reused. No need to bring beer/cans/plastic bottles.

Most sunscreens can harm the coral reef; if you plan on using sunscreen when snorkeling, swimming, or kayaking, please bring reef-safe sunscreen or ask us for it.

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!
