Our Caribbean hideaway on Panama’s idyllic Cristobal Island affords intrepid visitors a chance to step out of time for a spell. Here, the sun counts the hours, pastoral ways hold sway, and life is truly off the grid. Designed for the aspiring castaway, Tai Nuare ecolodge offers all the benefits of a private island experience—unhurried relaxation and limitless outdoor adventure—but with rich cultural connections.

The space
Tai Nuare Lodge

The Lodge is an eco-friendly villa built over the Caribbean sea, on Isla Cristobal in the archipelago of Boca del Toro, Panama.
The villa is situated over the water adjacent to 60 acres of private jungle with a calm freshwater lake in the center of the property, wildlife including sloths, toucans, parrots, along with mini crocodiles are a common sight to see while wandering the network of trails that span the property. The Villa itself is located 100 feet away from a reef system that spans approximately 40 acres and offers great snorkeling for anybody who would like to explore this massive reef. We are just a 15 minutes boat ride from Boca town/airport and only a short 2 hours or 26 miles from the Costa Rica border.

Our main goal and promise to our guests is an intimate experience with nature where you have the freedom to get out and explore all of what Bocas has to offer with the help of your personal boat and captain, or just relax in comfort inside your own beautiful luxurious one of a kind Villa while at the same time minimizing the impact on this beautiful environment.

Construction finished during the end of 2019 using local natural building materials offered by the rich resources of the region. The result is a private 2600 sq ft grandeur villa where you will be able to observe impressive vistas, sunsets interrupted only by jumping dolphins while maintaining a close to nature spirit and environment.

Feel immersed in the sounds of nature while walking through the bare jungle only altered by the path that was constructed with the goal of leaving as much of the jungle untouched, lounging on the terrace sipping a drink, or soaking in the sun after snorkeling in the calm protected waters in front of the villa.

Learn how to coexist in an eco-friendly environment with the most advanced earth-friendly renewable energy systems. Solar panels provide electricity to the house, biodegradable shampoo, soap and cleaning supplies
Fishing around the house is not allowed to allow the animals to safely thrive close to and under the bungalows sanctuary. Locally sourced, caught and grown fresh foods are used for our gourmet menu cuisine.
