We spent three nights here in August 2016. We took a boat ride from Almirante to Isla Colon and then another to Isla Bastimentos. One of the co-owners (Jay) was on the lookout for us and took us right to his boat. LODGING: We had a spacious and comfortable room in one of the separate buildings with an individual room... More

I spent three nights at Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge in May, 2016, and I have nothing but good things to say. It is a quality vacation place away from the hustle and bustle, but with easy access to nearly everything that Bocas del Toro has to offer. If you want nightlife and funky restaurants, this is not the place--stay... More

Loved this place! Great owners with a lot of knowledge. You can do great hikes on the property itself. The rooms are lovely and the garden is just beautiful! Would have love to stay longer and explore the environment more. If you like adventure and things to do on you holiday, this is the place to be!

We spent two nights there and all was excellent. The owners Jim and Jay made you feel like at home, many interesting things about local life and nature we could learn from them. Cabanas was very well equipped and furnished with taste. The owners offer many interesting trips like kavaking, birding excursion, fishing, wildlife viewing. This is the place for... More

My wife and I stayed here for a week as part of a birding tour with Victor Emanuel Nature Tours of Bocas del Toro. Our tour group were the only guests of Jim, Jay and Renee (the developers and owners of Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge).

The whole crew at Tranquilo did a fantastic job of making our vacation an excellent one, with a special shout out to the guides, Ramon and Natalia.

Probably one of the nicest places in Bocas Del Toro - if you are looking for nature and tranquillity - this is the place. We were in Tranquilo Bay beginning December 2015 for 3 days. The Texan owners have done a fabulous job in creating a perfect Getaway for the guests. The place is totally isolated – you need a... More
