I have been traveling South America for a year and haven't found anything nearly as special as this place. The hostel is clean, beautifully decorated and really gives you a homey cabin feel. Not to mention that it's right on an actual beach which is hard to come across in Bocas. But the thing I was most impressed by was... More

Lovely secluded spot not luxurious but comfortable Not that close to Bocas Town but that was a plus as was available kitchenette in cabin Waves provided a wonderful soundtrack Beach was beautiful Hammocks were comfortable and service was attentive Availability of meals (breakfast or dinner) if desired, another advantage.

This place was exactly what I wanted. Such a great set up! The restaurant patio was amazing! I could sit there all day and watch the waves. The managers were so helpful with anything you needed, we really had no plans going there and they were full of great options. I loved that you could have all your meals there.... More

Tesoro Escondido lives up to its name! My Wife and I were on Honeymoon and immediately fell in love with the location, Food and relaxed atmosphere. The Cabinas are situated on the seafront and the edge of the rainforest for an authentic tropical island feel. The food is home cooked and dinner changes everyday. Monique Jane and Maxi went out...

Well, if you desire to stay somewhere pretty secluded with good views then by all means try this place. It's kind of like a big tree house. That being said, the place is 4 miles from town which may not sound like a lot but a taxi to and from town is 15 dollars EACH way. Also, I feel as... More

Nice place away from stressful Bocastown. - We didnt get the room at the check in time, we also got informed that we needed to change rooms both of our nights. Really Not that big of a deal but always nice with an apologize. Though it was a good place to stay!

Gorgeous eco-lodge tucked into the jungle of Panama! You are steps from the beach, but also surrounded by lush forest. The first time we stayed here we say sloths in the trees directly overlooking the outdoor patio! This is a very unique and wonderful experience. However, this is not a luxury hotel, with steamed towels. Look at the hotels website... More

There are so many photos already posted on the internet, but they do not transmit the beauty of the place, and the friendliness of the staff. Very hospital, knowledgeable, friendly. The food was really good, and we definitely recommend to sign up for meals. Tesoro lodge has bicycles for rent, if you want to discover the island on your own,... More

The location speaks for itself.... surfers paradise in between beach breaks at playa Bluff just 12 minutes up the road, with Dumpers and Paunch the same in the other direction. There are not many places you can have jungle on one side and waves breaking on the other. Every day there was something different, monkeys howling in the trees, a... More

I stayed here with my parents and sister for two nights. Roomy, yet cozy cabin; beds were very comfortable with bug nets (we didn't need them) and small fans for each bed. No air conditioning, but the fans provided a nice breeze. Kitchen has everything you need to cook (a two burner propane stove and good sized fridge). The cabin... More
