This bungalow is indeed a hidden gem. It is on stilts on water; the dense jungle vegetation surround it, making it difficult to see from afar. Once you discover the cabin, you will be glad you did. It is bright and colourful with teal, pink, and scarlet colour palette. Guests have access to a kayak and snorkelling equipment so that they can explore the water and reefs near the floating house. If you are looking for a secluded jungle retreat in Bocas del Toro, then you should definitely consider this cabin!

This cabin is essentially a luxury treehouse. Though it includes a great deal of wood into the decor and furniture, the house is also quite colourful. The use of vibrant colours such as teal, yellow, and purple creates a cheerful atmosphere in the house. Though it is rather secluded, the house is about 15 minutes away from Boca Town, where you can find many restaurants, shops, and bars. After spending a long day exploring nature and the neighbouring town, you can unwind in the pool that is available to cabin guests.

This beachfront bungalow puts you less than 20 feet (6 meters) from the water. Despite being solar-powered, the accommodation offers complimentary WiFi for convenience. For those who want a completely secluded accommodation, this bungalow is ideal for you. A 5-10 minute boat ride will take you to Bocas Town. Being secluded doesn’t necessarily mean that you don’t have the comforts of a great stay, this Airbnb has hot water, a fully-equipped kitchen, basic essentials, iron and a laptop-friendly workspace. If you’re travelling with your family, you’d be pleased to know that the host can provide you with a high chair, travel crib and stair gates.
