It is a beautiful peaceful area to go explore jungles, beaches, and cafes or surf at the famous Tiger Tail or Paunch Surf Break. We are located 15 min drive from the centre of Bocas Town, including the airport. The road from town takes you directly past our front gates.

The nearest beach is about 80m away, a quick stroll across the road. This is a small cove perfect for snorkelling and relaxing, sipping your morning coffee, a quick dip or if travelling with kids the perfect wave-free spot for kids to play and have fun.

We have parking spaces on the property as well as space to park your bikes or bicycles. Taxi's pass by the property frequently as we are situated just off Beach road. Buses pass every hour in either direction towards Playa Bluff or towards Bocas Town. We also have a number of reliable taxi drivers to call in any event. It costs $3 per person for a taxi ride from the centre of Bocas town/Airport to reach us. Biking around Bocas is a fun and economical way to get around, however the preferred choice for most visitors is to hire a quad bike or e-bike across the road and use this for the duration of their stay.
