About
Description
We have four beautiful rooms with amazing tree house like views. Located right across the street from one of the most popular surf breaks in Bocas (with two more in walking distance), here you can wake up to the More sounds of Howler Monkeys and tropical birds and fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean from the nearby surf. Conveniently located approximately half way between Bocas Town and Bluff, there are three restaurants within walking distance, another 3 in biking distance and Bocas Town is only a 10-15 minute taxi ride away (or a little over a 30 min on bicycle). Rent ATVs at nearby Flying Pirates. There are even two places to rent surf boards within walking distance for beginners or those that cannot bring their own boards. Enjoy free breakfast overlooking the jungle canopy and free use of bicycles when you stay with us. Yoga classes are held regularly as well as other fun activities like a weekly Build Your Own Bloody Mary Bar. Less

Hi there! It is about a 20-30 minute bicycle ride to town, depending on how fast you ride.
