Bring your bug spray, your hiking boots, and your bathing suit! It's tropical adventure time!
!!! IMPORTANT: THIS IS A RUSTIC PLACE, NOT A RESORT !!!
It's for the adventurous, who want reasonable comfort in a remote setting, and want to experience realities of rural life in the tropics.
Wear Bug Protection: We are bug conscious in the design of our accommodations. That being said, a layer of coconut oil, or bug spray can keep you comfortable during "Chitra Hour" when the no-see-ums come out at dawn and dusk. These critters are generally predictable, so its easy to be prepared.
When your group of 16 or more guests book the Tropical Island Jungle Retreat, 145 acres of jungle is yours to explore.
Fresh water is imported for your drinking, and bathing water is collected from the rain.
Solar panels allow you to keep up a good charge on your cameras and cellphones. They support our WiFi, so you can post all your pictures ! #Cocovivo @cocovivopanama
We cater to dietary restrictions and base our recipes on local ingredients. Breakfast, a fresh smoothie, and Dinner are 28$ per day per person.
Snorkel gear and kayaks, as well as other fun floatation devices are here for your enjoyment.
Guided hikes of the property are by donation for trail maintenance.
Guests have a number of tours to choose from, priced dependent on the number of participants. Locally led Horse-back Riding, Chocolate tours, beach days, and town visits to mention a few. If there is somewhere you would like to explore that is not in our list of tours, the boat is available to charter with our captain Leo (He grew up here!)
