Our family of four loved the villas. Izzy is a great host. He met us at the airport, and we were able to shop for some groceries and catch a bite before heading over to his villas. We had a great time here and only wish we could have stayed more than two nights! If we ever return to Panama,...

From the perspective of a single male traveler looking for peace and quiet in Bocas, you can't do better. I imagine if I had myself a lady, it would be even more splendid. First off, the villas are exquisite. They have a cabin feel with all the modern amenities (besides a/c). Cable tv, a full kitchen, and so much space....

I travelled to Panama with my 2 dogs in Sept 2012 and had originally stayed on Bocas. The place I was staying was a bit too noisy for me so in Oct I re-located to Casa Selva del Mar and never looked back. Izzy and Susan have created a peaceful paradise that makes it difficult to leave. It is a...
