Tesoro Escondido sits up on a cliff among the tree tops and right between two beaches. You can be at eye level with the sloth and the monkeys and sometimes even above them. I love the 2nd floor of the lodge it's a hugh wrap around deck . It's the same floor as the dinning area. lots of chairs and hammocks to lounge in, read a book, watch the surfers, bird watch, watch the barracuda and sting ray from the deck.
There are two beaches right there so all depending on the season the snorkeling is fantastic. A quarter mile down the road there is another beach that goes on for miles.
The grounds has 3 cabanas that are uniquely decorated. There is also an apt. on the grounds.
The lodge has five rooms.
The grounds are full of flowers and fruit which supports some of the neatest insects I have ever seen, like banana spiders,and walking sticks that are as big as my hand, lightening bugs that look Darth Vader, lizards,geckos and yes snakes....nothing that is harmful. You have to remember that you are in the jungle.
It is completely Eco-friendly. Monique will help you set up your day or night trips and her husband Jim will happily sit and chat with you about the history of Bocas. The staff is always very friendly. The food is good Breakfast,Lunch and Dinner prices are reasonable and there is a bar. Every room has a cooler so bring a block of Ice and do some of your own cooking to save money. There are two kitchens in the lodge and the cabanas have kitchens. Things stay damp given your right on the sea.
You can be as social as you want to be.....but, it's fun to have dinner with everyone in the evening and share drinks and stories.
There are also many dogs and a few cats for those of you that might need a fix.....
