Bocas Del Toro Travel Guide
HotelChatter reader Lisa sent us this photo taken from her bed at the Al Natural Resort on Bastimentos Island in Panama.
The resort in Bocas del Toro is open from July to April and features six bungalows along the beach made by the Ngobe-bugle Indians. It's also an eco-resort that uses solar power yet you can still get a fairly modern bathroom with a hot water shower, all for about a $100 a night. That said, just keep in mind you are pretty much roughing it here. As one recent guest said:
I think that it is fair to say up front that this place is not for everyone. There is a chance of being devoured by bugs, you will be sharing your bed with lizards etc. and you must have an appreciation for raw nature.
If you can handle that, the place gets rave reviews for its beautiful scenery, nearby snorkeling and jungle explorations, charming European hosts who cook for you and the late-night whiff of something else that's very green.
