We took the "Rainforest Experience", which meant that we had a fully-equipped two bedroom house completely surrounded by rainforest and utterly isolated from any other human beings entirely to ourselves! A fifty yard walk down to the little dock among the mangroves allowed us to hop into sea kayaks and paddle ourselves across the bay (say, 15 minutes) to the main Garden of Eden resort where we were welcome any time for breakfast, dinner or just to chill out.
Actual, hermits that we are, we only paddled over for one breakfast and for Christmas dinner, otherwise we self-catered the whole four days. When I say fully-equipped, I mean it. There's even a washing machine, no mean feat given that the whole house runs on solar panels and filtered rainwater!
If you like to get away from it all, you'll find it hard to get further away than this! But at the same time, Kipp (the owner) can organise any of the various excursions available in Bocas del Toro - you just need to head over to the "main" resort. I say "main" but Garden of Eden is tiny itself, there must be only 3 or 4 rooms. Don't expect slick service from manicured tourist industry staff with lil' name badges, this is just laid-back and friendly helpfulness from Kipp and his small crew.

- We are a small private island Bed and Breakfast located in a tropical setting of Bocas Del Toro, Panama.

We can accommodate up to 10 adults comfortably. Sorry no guests under 18 yrs of age. Close enough to Bocas to shop yet far enough to be as private as you want to be. ... more less
