Punta Rica Jungle Villa is nestle between a small beach cove and the treetops of a lush virgin rain forest on Bastimentos Island. Just 10 minutes from Bocas Town, your nature loving dreams can come true! Rate is for the complete villa that can acomódate comfortably 12 guests. We will be happy to arrange a private chef and activities that will make your experience truly unique and memorable. Experience a unique tropical holiday vacation in our Eco-Friendly home.

The space
Punta Rica Villa is situated on a hilltop surrounded by lush, virgin rain forest on Bastimentos Island in the vicinity of Bastimentos National Park. The villa is at a convenient ten-minute water taxi ride to Bocas Town.

It is a nature lover’s dream, being a sanctuary for indigenous red, orange and gold-colored frogs. Many species of birds, such as parrots, hummingbirds and the gorgeous Montezuma Oropendola can be seen right from the open-air decks of the house. Howler and white-faced monkeys as well as sloths are also an occasional sight. There are two beautiful reefs within a short swimming distance of our private dock and the most popular snorkeling spot in Bocas, Hospital Point, is just a few minutes away. Be one with nature while enjoying many gorgeous beaches at close proximity.

The home has four spacious, bright and airy 2-story bedroom suites with private living rooms and balconies. The villa can accommodate up to 12 guests comfortably.

Imagine flying from Panama City, observing the world-famous canal, then lush, green rainforests, finally passing over palm-laden islands rimmed with white sand beaches and surrounded by azure waters. After landing in Bocas del Toro on the main island of Isla Colon, you will be whisked away by water taxi. Glide through crystal-clear waters, greeted by rose-colored giant brain corals as you approach our private dock.

Ascending gently to your vacation villa, you will be greeted by countless tropical plants, flowers and trees, while keeping an eye out for the tiny red frogs that are unique to Bastimentos Island.

Sipping your coffee, hummingbirds dart from flower to flower. Occasionally, see a monkey bounding through the treetop canopy, or perhaps a sloth hanging in a nearby tree. Enjoy the simple pleasures of relaxing in a hammock with a cold beverage, swinging in a gentle breeze.
