The first morning at The Monkey Tree I was awoken by a crashing in the trees accentuated by the odd low harrumphing sound of the male Howler monkey. His family had come to hang out (literally) and forage in the canopy above my cabana. With a fresh coffee in one hand and a fresh fruit sunday in the other, I... More

We stayed in Casita 2 for four days and Monkey Tree was the highlight of our trip. We had a cool breeze in the morning and the evening, plus we were close enough to the beach to hear the waves at night. There was an amazing amount of bird life to view from the screened in porch. We fell in... More

My husband and I stayed at Monkey Tree Casitas in Casita 2 for one week in December. The casita was wonderful and spacious for just the two of us. The location is great. You are about 10 minutes by cab from Bocas Town. Cabs are plentiful on that road so you can just start walking and flag them down to... More

Myself and my partner stayed in Casita 1 at the end of March 2015. As many have already commented but it is worth saying again; Heather is a very good hostess. She has made sure that the Casita is the perfect mix of nature retreat and creature comforts. You are given a cell phone and access to internet which makes... More

Enjoyed every moment of our stay at Monkey Tree Casitas. We stayed in Casita 1 which is surrounded by lush rain forest and thick jungle. Woke one morning to the sound of the Howler Monkeys outside our place. Watched as they played, swinging from tree to tree. A real treat! The casita was very clean and comfortable and kitchen well...

Admittedly this accomodation was slightly more expensive than i would normally pay for but not wanting to stay in the centre of town and being drawn to the name i thought i would treat myself for a couple of days. This was the best decision i made! The casita itself was incredibly spacious and immaculate (fresh flowers on the table... More

We stayed at Monkey Tree in Casita #1 for 8 nights & I loved every minute of it! The large, wrap around deck is the perfect place to relax, in the hammock or lounging on the day bed, experiencing the sounds, sights & smells of the jungle. On the first morning a troop of howler monkeys played in the canopy... More

I can't begin to describe how mystical it is to live in a casita that feels like a treehouse with a troop of howler monkeys as neighbors. Our casita was comfortable, surrounded by lush tropical growth, and rusticly nostalgic, outfitted in tropical hardwoods, shutters and ceiling fans. There was no need for air conditioning, bug spray (though I hear that... More

This place has the perfect combination of a quiet jungle like setting along with the beach being super accessible! The Calista has a beautiful bathroom and roomy bedroom. The open deck allows you to enjoy the sounds of the morning birds and the waves in the distance all while sipping coffee. We utilized the filled equipped kitchen on a daily... More

Kitchen is perfect for breakfast and for those nights in. There is also a pizza place next door, the makes amazing wood oven... More
