My wife Pam and I spent 4 nights at Garden of Eden just last month and it was perfect for us in every way. It was our own little island, but easy to have Kip set us up with a water taxi (maybe Chingo will spot some sloths for you to see as he did for us) and go to Bocas town or off to snorkeling. Or we could easily use one of his kayaks to enjoy Red Frog Beach. Every morning started with a great combo of fresh fruit, johnnycakes and coffee. And one could easily return every evening for Miguel's wonderful cooking (although you should get out at least once to one of the great local restaurants). The atmosphere was very relaxed, and Kip was a wonderful host and very helpful in arranging our activities. At the time, Maria and Melissa were assisting Kip in running things and they were super friendly and accommodating. Of course, if you like dogs, you will love the true manager of the island, Zeus! If we were to return to Panama, our first move would be an email to the Garden of Eden for another stay.
