Tranquillo Bay is wonderfully located on a large island in the Boca Del Toro. The owners have had the vision to create a lodge that is really of its place among the Mangroves of the Caribbean coast. High quality, exceptionally well-maintained and private. Superb food and hospitality with proprietors Renee, Jim and Jay. Three of the most active and interesting...

The cabana's are very roomy, clean, well supplied, and comfortable, the Lodge comfortable and friendly. I enjoyed the family style meals where we met interesting people from around the world....

We loved our stay here!!! First off, the setting is fantastic. When they bought the property they purchased 200 acres on the island, preserving the surrounding lush and gorgeous rain forest. "They" being Renee, Jay and Jim (and their 4 kids). They've created an oasis in Bocas where you feel at home amongst their family and nature. The staff was...

I spent 3 days at the wonderful Tranquilo lodge in November. Turns out November is the region's wettest month , not the lodge's fault . But still I had a fantastic time. There is something about being in the rain forest in the rain that is ok :-) The cabins are 5 star and set in a stunning quiet location....

A week in the jungle taking photos of poison-dart frogs was the highlight of our adventure at Tranquilo Bay. For out group of three, the surrounding forest and trips to other islands presented many opportunities to create images of these colorful, tiny frogs. Along with the frogs, were a few monkeys and sloths, and of course there were many colorful...

We had an unbelievable experience staying at Tranquilo Bay, and definitely wish we had been able to stay longer! From the very comfortable, well appointed rooms to the friendly, helpful staff and unparalleled naturalist guides, if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay with a variety of adventurous opportunities to enjoy the unique natural environment of Isla Bastimentos,...

We quite honestly had the best vacation we've ever had at Tranquilo Bay. Everything was great - from being met at the airport, to the comfortable cabin with hammock and AC, to meals (good food, and they fed our children separately so that we could relax while we ate), to the naturalist guides who seemed to know everything about the...

The many other positive reviews contain the highlights: excellent lodging, staff, food, clean, and first rate guides in Natalia and Ramon (plus Jay and Jim). My wife and I stayed a week with a Zeiss sponsored birding tour, and I don't think things could have gone better. Look over the reviews and Tranquilo Bay website-- if you think you would...

We spent three nights here in August 2016. We took a boat ride from Almirante to Isla Colon and then another to Isla Bastimentos. One of the co-owners (Jay) was on the lookout for us and took us right to his boat. LODGING: We had a spacious and comfortable room in one of the separate buildings with an individual room...
