Let me manage your expectations, our entire time glamping we were covered in a fine layer of sand that just wouldn't wash off with the rainwater showers - sound like something you are up for? Then get to Palmar immediately. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed every minute, the tent camp is on lovely Red Frog Beach and yes we did see the frogs on our walk to Wizard Beach next door. Amazing world class beaches. Palmar is very chill and the volunteers and guests are very friendly. We relaxed in hammocks and the beach chairs and took yoga every day. Our private tents were as nice as could be expected in a rainforest, just be prepared for heat and humidity (note that my hair never dried). Only downside and this applies to all Bocas and Bastimentos is the sand fleas, coconut oil doesn't stop them, if you are coming, load up on garlic pills. Assuming you are coming with the right attitude this place is paradise.
