Welcome to the Panama Eco Resort, where the opportunities to start your new life in Panama are endless. The property comes with a turn key vacation rental and an incredible workshop, to bring future expansion of this eco-retreat to fruition. All with incredible ocean views, and a northern breeze!

Located in a secluded bay, with little to no boat traffic, this property is boat access only, less than 20 minutes from Almirante and 10-15 minutes to the nearest restaurant. It has been discussed that a new road will be built to give the nearby school in Tierra Oscura access to the highway. When this happens the Panama Eco Resort property will become road accessible, and likely increase in value.



North facing properties in the Bocas del Toro lagoons are gold, as they welcome the cool breezes off the sea, but what makes the coast of this property so unique is the large section of unmangroved shore. The natural bare spot on the coast provides this eco-development with clear views of the ocean and shepard Island, and with very few no-seeums!

The elevated home site slopes gently down to a pebble beach that meets the waters edge and the newly built dock.

Backed by 4 Hectares of jungle, there is no shortage of space for the abundance of wildlife that attracts visitors from all over the world. Experience visits from Toucans and Howler Monkeys, Parrots, Sloths and Iguanas to name a few, the current owners have even encountered a Jaguarundi!

Extensive 3m wide trails criss-cross the property to provide visitors with hours of exploration through various ecological systems. Throughout the untamed portion of the property exist hundreds of Cacao trees not yet being used to harvest.

A relatively small strip of land in the direct vicinity of the development has been cleared for orchards and vegetable farming. This exposed around 50 Cacao trees in full production, Citrus fruits, mangos and a variety of other perennials have been planted in the cleared space, protected by the shade of the large trees that were selectively saved.

Adjacent to Panama Eco-Resort’s 10 acres, is an additional 15 acres at the affordable price of $120,000 USD. This extra land would give the property access to the sea on 2 sides of the peninsula that currently separates them. The waterfront of the additional 15 acres leads to a beautiful meadow, that would serve as a lovely building site, as well, to a Lookout Point at 60 ft elevation  which offers incredible views of the sea. This location would serve birders well, and could be an excellent location for a honeymoon suite!



All built within the last 3 years, Panama Eco Resort consists of 4 buildings that have been designed to Canadian building standards.

There is a large covered communal space, with an open air kitchen and  bar, and sliding chalk board doors to close up at night. Beside the kitchen and bar, you will find a pool, a large lounge and a 12 seater Live Edge dining table, which all face the breathtaking view.

Built on concrete for low maintenance this structure has an industrial feel with exposed posts and beams. Functional and comfortable as is, it can be finished in the future owner’s desired style without the need for heavy renovation.

The 2 cabins on site both have their focal points on the sea. One studio Cabin with a large veranda is currently used by the owners/managers of Panama Eco Resort,  and the 2 bedroom Cabana is rented out to guests. Fully finished, the 2 bedroom cabin has 1 bathroom, a sea side veranda and the potential to have its own kitchen.

Two septic systems have been installed in a way that will support many more cabins along the path to the water’s edge.

Finally, the large workshop is a handy person’s dream, with indoor and outdoor spaces to make your projects come to life, while you work and play where the jungle meets the sea.



Panama Eco Retreat has excellent reviews on all the platforms with which it operated. With the sale of the home will come a website and private domain, and all the accounts pertaining to the business: E-mail linked to all social media and website, Instagram, Facebook,, Airbnb, Youtube and Trip Advisor. With this virtual presence already well established, moving into and marketing this turn key business will be seamless.



The Panama Eco Resort is perfect for the hotelier:

Already generating a rental income, the placement of the buildings has been chosen with expansion in mind. When Eco-Tourism picks up in Bocas del Toro, be ready with a few new cabins!

The Panama Eco Resort is perfect for the chocolatier:

Hundreds of ancient Cacao trees are pushing out pods in the shelter of the jungle’s canopy. Sell to the Chocolate co-op in Almirante, establish a direct trade agreement with a chocolatier abroad, or indulge in the process from tree to tastebuds yourself.

The Panama Eco Resort is perfect for a permaculture farm:

With an orchard already in place, and dark Tierra Oscura soil, this is a fertile property to grow on.

The Panama Eco Resort is perfect for off-grid life, and conservation:

With the footprint of this development only occupying a fraction of the property, there is so much left of this 4 hectares (and the option for 6 more!) for wilderness. From mangroves, to jungle, to the transitions in between, you will be amazed at the bio-diversity flourishing on this property.
