Our visit to Morillo Beach Eco Resort began with a conversation. Friends who’d recently been there spoke of it with such enthusiasm that I knew I wanted to go. I’d never been to Panama, and in fact, it had never even been on my radar. I contacted Cari, and over the course of our communications was consistently impressed by her quick and thoughtful responses. My husband and I chose the 10 day package because every detail, including hotel and shuttle arrangements, from the moment we arrived in Panama until the time we left, was handled in a way that eased any concerns I had about being in an unfamiliar part of the world for the first time. Cari patiently answered dozens of questions over the next several months, and as she helped me to navigate their website, I realized that it provided all the information we needed to be prepared for a great adventure. Her blogs piqued my interest even further, and now, in retrospect, I truly appreciate the way they “primed” me for a rich and intimate experience.
From the moment we arrived, Cari and Ryan welcomed us into their home and made us feel like family. The buildings, rooms and common areas are beautifully designed- spacious, artful, simple yet elegant. Whether I was in the mood for privacy, or hanging out with other guests (who quickly became friends) any place I chose provided immediate access to the jungle that surrounds. Thanks to Cari and Ryan’s guidelines, we learned how to behave as respectful guests in the home of the many varied creatures who live there, and were rewarded by their allowing us to observe them up close: the howler monkeys with their haunting calls, iguanas, butterflies, and birds of all colors, sizes and songs.
The jungle teemed with plants I’d only seen in a botanical garden if at all, and everywhere there was fragrance and color: orchids, bougainvillea, torch ginger, bromeliads.
The location is perfect: down steps to an estuary and mangroves, a long sandy beach, and an ocean with gentle waves for swimming and surfing, warm enough to play in for hours. That would have been enough, would have exceeded my expectations, but there was even more.
We chose seven different adventures: releasing just-hatched turtles, surfing, hiking, swimming in waterfall pools, snorkeling, visiting a local soapmaking business, and spending a day with a Panamanian family high in the mountains on land they’d cleared from the jungle 70 years ago. Each activity was superb, and brought fresh understanding and connection to the Panamanian people and environment, both past and present.
The quality and presentation of the food was equal to the rest of it, and that’s saying a LOT! Every meal was homemade and prepared with fresh, local fruits, vegetables, fish and meat. Much of the produce came from the organic garden. Cari is an artist in the kitchen- although many dishes have a clear Mexican theme- tacos, burritos, enchiladas- Cari’s well versed with other cuisines, including Thai, Carribean and Panamanian- there was a lot of fusion going on. I enjoyed new flavors and delicious variations on familiar favorites like pizza and pasta as well as delicious salads. I rarely eat dessert, but I ate Limon Cream Pie everyday.
Cari and Ryan and their staff are highly skilled and professional, warm and engaging. Whether leading a hike, coaching a hope-to-be surfer, or stopping by during a meal time for casual conversation, everyone goes go above and beyond to meet the needs of guests in order to ensure maximum enjoyment, all the while maintaining a relaxed and easy presence. Cari and Ryan are gifted storytellers, teachers and hosts, eager to share their knowledge without being pushy or preachy. They care deeply for this extraordinary place and their commitment to restoring and preserving its integrity is exciting and inspiring.
I’ve come away with far more than I ever imagined. We’re already planning our next visit.

OH WOW! This is going to be one of those kinds of reviews that we look back on and read for years to come. I cannot believe how much effort you put into this. It warms our hearts to read every word, feel the joy you experienced while here, the love you felt and now feel for our place, our team, us, and all the nature that surrounds us. My response just cannot do your review justice and I don't think it should. This stands on its own as a great short story that many will enjoy reading and inspire them to come stay with us to experience the magic of this special place in the world so that it can live on and become even better for the years to come. It feels so great to hear how much you enjoyed our foods (I have never been called an artist but I love that), the elegant simplicity of the rooms, buildings, and common space, and most importantly the trees, animals, birds, and the ease of access to the beach and surf out front. To top it all off your genuine appreciation of the local culture, the intimacy of our resort which encourages interactions with guests from all over the world, and the ease of travel with our all inclusive package is so appreciated by us, our team, and the families that were involved to share their world with you and your family. Thank you with all our hearts for writing this review. Your Friends Always in Morrillo, Cari, Ryan, Princessa, Tila, our entire team, and the monkeys too!

We spent two nights at the eco lodge and wished we could have stayed longer. Like forever. It seemed like everyone we met told us about Cari and Ryan; their hospitality, focus on supporting the community and sustainability and amazing location. We immediately fell in love and booked a short stay before we left Panama.

This is a magical place. We appreciated the quietness, being surrounded by lush vegetation and an abundance of wildlife. Our room was beautiful, huge with a king sized bed (hard to come by) and a gorgeous balcony. There has been much attention to detail in all aspects of this lodge. Cari and Ryan are fabulous people. Their passion and commitment to their clients, community and stewardship of the animals and land Is remarkable. There is a troop of howler monkeys easily seen in the forest around the resort. Cari is very respectful of these amazing creatures ensuring there is little human interaction or influence on their lives. The awe of watching these monkeys with others in silence was very powerful.

The food and drink rival all other enjoyable aspects to this experience. They offer beer on tap which is not something we’d seen anywhere else and Ryan’s mango/pineapple hard cider is delicious. The food prepared by Cari was divine; fresh, organic and locally sourced. We had a beautiful mahi-mahi steak one evening and fabulous tacos the next.

The location feels so private. The beach is one which swimming, surfing and just playing around is safe.

We loved it and plan on returning.

Morrillo Beach Eco resort is hand built by the owners and overlooks two wide, sweeping sandy beaches. For surfers this is paradise and for eco tourists the howler monkeys are never too far. One sandy beach provides sets of nursery waves and the next is for the Pro's. For food lovers most of the ingredients are local. The pork, beef and chicken are from a local farm. The veggies, herbs and fruit are also grown around the corner. And the fish is fresh! Rooms are spacious with hot & cold running water, big balconies & great views over the lagoon and bays. I would happily return.

Murillo Beach Eco Resort is one of the nicest places I have ever visited. The uncrowded beach swimming is really fun, no currents or dangerous rocks, and surf that is both manageable and dynamic, The rooms are super clean and comfortable, private and tasteful. The birdwatching is great and the restaurant is consistently yummy. In addition to all this, the hosts went the extra mile to make our stay both restful and fun, and they really care about the land they are taking care of and the people who work for them and the sourcing of the food in the restaurant. The Morrillo Eco Lodge lives up to its name. I’m already planning my next trip back.

We had the opportunity to spend 5 days in this unique, amazing place surrounded by the nature.
As we arrived Cary and Ryan welcomed us with a tasty cocktail made of local fruits and proceeded to introduce us to their beautiful resort.
Traveling as a group of 6 people (couples/friends) we booked 3 different rooms: the rooms are BIG, CLEAN and are furnished to the smallest detail; potable water is provided in every single room and that’s a big plus considering the surroundings are jungle.
As you leave your room keep your eyes open as there’s the chance to see a bunch of animals (monkeys, iguanas, tucans for example) and that’s incredible for a city guy like me ahah.
As a group of surfers we surfed both the spot immediately accessible from the resort and the main one: both provided consistent swells and it felt amazing sharing the lineup with Cary and Ryan.
The restaurant is open for any need all day long, and you can enjoy a variety of food ranging from typical Panamanian dishes to Mexican ones and/or pizza. Every food is prepared with homegrown vegetables/eggs and if you’re into meat/fish Cary will proceed to explain carefully the origin.
The resort has a brewery as well. Don’t sleep on that. Their beers are amazing and will help you chill out during the hottest days (West Coast IPA>water).
The staff is very friendly and the overall care they dedicate to the smallest thing is top notch; they’ll go the extra mile to provide whatever you need.
Definitely has been an amazing experience and (already) look forward to visit again.

We were lucky to find this place through friends who live in Panama. The road there is a bit long and bumpy, but just keep driving – you will not be disappointed. The resort is small with just six rooms so no worries for big tourist groups, instead of the very personal hospitality of the owners Cary and Ryan. There is plenty of wildlife to be seen on site, including toucans and monkeys which we could observe from our balcony. The resort is right on the beach so very convenient, the beach itself is safe, really beautiful and comes with good waves for surfing. And we had it entirely to ourselves. To access the beach, you cross a small stream… on low tide the water is knee-deep but on high tide you need to swim the short distance across. This was all quite special and fun.

We took a surfing lesson from Ryan and did a 3 hour waterfall walk with Cary, and both were very good and definitively to recommend. Cary runs the kitchen and the food is fantastic, based on local produce and combines a healthy diet with great taste. The menu is not very long but every night she had something special on top both kids and adults just loved it. And as a specialty, Ryan has a good selection of great craft beers on tap, something you will not see in other resorts in the region.

If you like wildlife and nature, ocean and the beaches with no tourists, good food and drink as well as really friendly and personal service then this is the place to go to.

My favorite place thus far! The Morrillo Beach Eco Resort is a perfect place for a retreat from the busy vacation routine. This place is beautiful, Tranquillo, and has something for everyone. The Staff are fantastic people. The location and the habitat around the resort are near pristine, and the beach and estuary are perfect for the whole family. Safe and fun. I'll be back.

The cell reception is only good for CLARO phones plans. Also, if you are trying to work remotely, you'll need a personal hotspot The WiFi is not sufficient to do a zoom call. It took me 20 min to download email every morning. BUT IT WAS A BLESSING IN DISGUISE. Also, no food is allowed in the rooms and the restaurant has a fixed menu, so call a week ahead if you have dietary needs.

This place is incredible. After many travel hiccups a few weeks ago and being stuck in quarantine for three days (travelers to Panama from Colombia should be aware) my girlfriend and I really needed some time to relax and actually enjoy ourselves. I booked our few nights at Morrillo Beach Eco Hotel on super short notice and they were extremely accommodating, even though we had emergency changes of plans on the day we were supposed to check in. Cari was very understanding and made a few recommendations for what we should do in the meantime while we were waiting to figure things out. Once we got to the hotel we received a very warm welcome and almost immediately took to surfing while the conditions were still decent enough. Over our next few days stay, i learned that this hotel was built entirely with great attention not to invade the local ecosystem and with sustainability in full focus. from the landscape, to the architecture, to the menu, everything is intended to preserve all the natural beauty of the surroundings. You can tell that the management has an immense about of care and appreciation for the land and culture. it was a very refreshing and unique experience. The beach is pristine, the food is fresh and locally sourced, and i would say that time sort of stops in those conditions. coming from city life, i found it very inspiring to see how some people live in harmony with their surroundings and local cultures.

The location of this resort is absolutely stunning... on a cliff overlooking the ocean, at the Sunset Coast of Panama. It is a little road to get there and the last few meters are only accessible by 4x4 (we parked our car and had the owners to pick us and our luggage up).

Rooms are very big, with a lovely balcony overlooking the jungle. There's aircon and hot showers, drinking water from their own well and locally sourced, organic soaps. The owners Cari and Ryan are taking care of every little detail and it is lovely to know this place is taking care of its surroundings.

Defintely a recommendation.

This place is absolutely one of the last places on Earth that you can call true paradise!

Foremost the location:

If you are looking to get away from it all, in a beautiful tropical jungle, beaches where nobody has set a footprint on, surfing that is from beginner to advanced, this place has it. It’s one of the few places on Earth where you are guaranteed to score no matter when you visit, although, rainy season is the beat for surfing. Their are multi Points to take off from lefts and rights. AND you do not have to bring a board, you can rent soft-tops surfboards, top notch surfboards, paddle boards, kayaks, beach umbrellas, etc… you do not need to worry about bringing your own a equipment because they have you covered.
You have 2 options of getting there: they will provide a shuttle service from the airport or you may rent a car. I highly suggest an AWD or 4 x 4 because the last stretch.

The Staff:
Cari, Ryan, Carlos and the rest of the crew treat you like family! You don’t speak Spanish, no problem. You only speak Spanish, no problem. If they make it happen they will.

The food:
Every-time I go away my stomach feels a little off. This time it couldn’t be happier!
The food is absolutely delicious! All ingredients are locally sourced and made fresh that day! And they are other fabulous places to eat within a short drive.

The vibe:
True relaxation or true adventure!
You pick! They have adventures that you can add on in advance that our incredible!
Ask about them. Or you could do what we did, went for walks on the beaches & surf!

The price:
You can’t beat it! I actually think they should charge more but because of their remote location their will be technically difficulties but nothing that an open mind can’t handle.

The nature:
The monkeys are truly unique and amazing! Marine creature are in all oceans but they aren’t to worry about.

Overall:
After reflecting on the week, my husband (and yes, the absolutely LGBTQ friendly) and I spent there, it was truly one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. This is what Costa Rica was like 20 years ago. Pure Vida!

PJ, your review actually brings a bit of tears to my eyes. I love the way it helped bring me back to our time here with you and Harry and how much we enjoyed your story telling, your kindness, your adventurous spirits, and just overall making new friends with you both. You definitely scored amazing waves every day and I'm so happy for you to have had the experience of such amazing and uncrowded surf. Thank you for taking the time to share the finer details for future travelers planning a dream stay with us so they know what to expect and can be prepared to experience a remote paradise with great food, incredible nature, family style service and even better waves. We are so thankful to have made great new friends with both of you and truly hope to see you again here some day or perhaps in FL or on the waves somewhere on this beautiful planet. Sending you both so much love, Cari, Ryan, Tila, Princessa, Melikki, our entire team, and the monkeys too!!
