This waterfront cabin, has 2 queen sized beds. 1 'top bunk' in the loft, and the other 'floating'. Its perfect for 1 or 2 couples, a small family, or a group of friends.
With a private, floating Rancho located a few meters from our magical coral reef, this is the perfect place to launch your snorkel expedition.
Our unique transparent screen walls allow the breeze in, but keep the bugs out. Fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle and the ocean lapping gently beneath you.
Once upon a time this cabana floated whimsically on 55 gallon drums. It bobbed along for balanced couples only! These days we're offering our guests a little more support and stability by perching this cabana on stilts! Don't worry, you will still have a floating sensation, when relaxing in our hanging bed.
The cabana is one of a special few. CocoVivo Tropical Island Paradise sits on the Southern tip of Isla San Cristobal in the Bocas Del Toro Archipelago. The island has no roads or electricity but we support ourselves with solar panels, a backup generator and a rainwater collection system.
The room is totally screened in for comfort, but French doors open onto a private rancho. When night falls, strong bioluminescent waters makes this cabin seem like its out of a fairy tale.
Bookings for larger groups (up to 20 people) are possible via:
https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/326033, via a whole property rental!
Guests will have the privacy of their own cabin, but they will also be welcome to join us for breakfast, dinner, and hammock hang outs on our common dock.
Meal Services are provided upon request, we cater to dietary restrictions and base our menu on local ingredients. Breakfast and Dinner go for 28$ per day per person. ( Fresh Locally-grown Fruit Smoothie Included!)
Fresh water is imported for your drinking, and bathing water is collected from the rain.
Guests will have access to kayaks and SUP boards and are welcome to explore the 55 acres of jungle in the back yard. Guided tours are by donation to help with trail maintenance.
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 #Cocovivopanama
Guests have a number of tours to choose from, prices are 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!)
!!! 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. In addition to the abundant pleasures of the lush forests and reefs, you should expect to…..
GO OFF GRID: You will run out of running water if you take long showers or if the rains don't come. The solar panels are backed by a generator, but you'll need to remember to turn off lights and fans when not in use — especially when the clouds hang out for a few days.
WEAR BUG PROTECTION: We are bug conscious in the design of our accommodations. You will see dozens of geckos feeding on the insects on the outside of the screens that keep you bug free in the house. 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.
Respect the reef, respect the natural resources, respect your neighbor.
We are on site to keep jungle life comfortable.
Two hosts will be living on site, to answer all your questions about off the grid living, and to cook your meals. We employ the local people to help us with maintenance, building and cleaning. We provide a 'Ride Share' service to our remote location for 60$ included in the cleaning fee. To participate in this reduced price transport we ask that guests co-operate with the arrivals and departures of others, this could mean taking a short water taxi to the decided meeting point or being flexible with pick up times. If you would like to be picked up at a specific time we can refer you to a water taxi, or pick you up personally for an extra fee, from your hotel or the airport.
We're a group of entrepreneurs, scientists and artists who are all about new ideas and innovation, and sharing ideas with others. We go to TED, we co-organize BIL, we start companies, and we clean up space debris.
