I cannot explain how happy I was to arrive to the Free Spirit in on Bastimentos. Hidden away on the hill, the property is well beautifully well kept. You will find yourself surrounded by small huts filled with local Panamanian children and puppies, I would call the location far from touristy. The host, Frank, was incredibly helpful is suggesting restaurants... More

We had a wonderful time staying in the Garden Glamping Hut. The weather wasn't in our favour for most of the trip, yet we still had such a great time just relaxing, enjoying the great breakfast provided by Frank, and exploring nearby Wizard Beach. The rain NEVER got inside the hut, and there were very few mosquitos. It really is... More

The breakfasts were great and he was more than happy to help with anything we wanted. The room is decorated beautifully and is very clean,... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the "Free Spirit Inn" for one week. But this one week felt like an eternity for us - in a completely negative way! Calvin wasn't present, so I can' t say anything about him personally. But what I can say is: The "suite", where we stayed was a hole! I can't believe, how someone... More

We had a great experience staying at this inn. The rooms were very nice; clean, comfortable with a lovely view of the ocean.The location was very peaceful located in the hills but close enough for accessing the many great beaches and some great local spots. The Manager Frank was very attentive and took great care of all our needs, serving... More

Bocas del Toro is a little peace of heaven on Earth. Depending on the time of the day, the water sparkles in different shades of clear, blue and green. The nature provides tranquility and the activities will get your adrenaline moving. Free Spirit Inn is a lovely and intimate B&B with warm hospitality shared by the manager, Frank. The deep... More

We had a great time in the Free Spirit Inn. It is very easy to get there, only five minuits by boat from bocas and a short way by foot. The rooms are big and there is a beautiful garden. From the balcony you can have a nice view on the ocean and it is a perfect place to relax... More

We had three amazing days in this beautiful accommodation. There was nothing to complain about. Calvin helped us with everything and was very nice to us. The rooms were clean and he really cared about everything. We wanna thank him for the (too short) time we had on this island. We definitely wanna come back some time! Thank you!

We (3 women) stayed for four nights at Free Spirit Inn. Being on Bastimentos was a great respite from the density and energy of Bocas Town. Calvin was a very attentive and available host. He connected us to three different tours of the area during our stay, all based on our requests. Each tour was offered by a local guide,... More
