We loved our experience at Urraca! Francine, the proprietor, was a gracious hostess, an excellent cook and had impeccable taste. We stayed there in early May 2014 and had pretty good weather. It did rain one day, but we were able to have a fantastic day just reading and relaxing in the newer lofted building overlooking the sea. The other... More

It takes a bit of work to get to Urraca but it is well worth it. The boat ride from Bocas is beautiful. It rained our entire first day and it was still wonderful. Do NOT forget your snorkel and mask. You can literally enter the water from the front door of your private hut-over-water. Francine, the host, will take... More

My family's 4 night stay at Urraca was spectacular! Beautiful cabins and walkways built on a stunning mangrove. Our host Francine was so kind, warm & great fun. The water was clear and perfect for swimming or snorkelling, the meals of fresh lobster....yummy! Our highlight was definitely Francine's adopted pets: Toutie (the capuchin monkey), Quiso & Jojo ( the squirrel... More

Urraca Private Island is truly off the beaten path. This secluded hideaway is a great place to relax, swim and snorkel. Francine is an amazing host and takes care of your all your needs. The Ngobe Indians who work for her are super friendly and very helpful. I wish we had more time there.

The best tropical place i have visited by far. The service was perfect, the food was great, and the view was to die for. This place is a must, you have to go there, you could only find a other place like this in bora bora .

A friend and I stayed at Urraca private islands in February and we really had a blast. When it comes to confort, amazing food and awesome activities, Francine, the owner, knows what she's talking about. Everyday we got to est fresh fish, crab or crayfish that had been caught right away by the natives. The cook, Elicia, made us some... More

Who never dreamed of staying in a hut on the Polynesian water? Well you can do it at a fraction of the price and at a fraction of air miles by staying at the Urraca Islands in Panama. My wife and I are just back from our second trip to Panama and our first experience in living directly on the... More
