Where you’ll be

Cristóbal Island, Bocas del Toro, Panama

This neighborhood is WILD!

You really become PART of the eco-system when you stay at The Tropical Island Jungle Retreat.

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!
