BOCAS DEL TORO, PANAMA
In Bocas Del Toro: Eclypse de Mar Acqua Lodge is located in Bastimentos, offering private bungalows and rooms with individual hammocks, plus stairs leading to the ocean. It is a young company committed to the environment, prioritizing conservation efforts, located in a natural setting surrounded by protected areas (sea beds, mangroves and islands) home of a wide variety of abundant flora and fauna (including unique local species, such as the tiny red frog).
The Bungalows are built in local wood, with natural palm-leaf (penca) roofing, providing a cool atmosphere, tasteful decoration and high quality finishing in the finest Caribbean-style architecture. All bungalows offer a unique view of the most stunning sunsets in Bocas Del Toro as well as glass viewing-floors for watching sea life just below your feet from inside the Bungalow. Electricity is generated by solar panels located on the roof of the restaurant that is why the lodge’s supply does not depend on the community electrical system but has autonomy. Each bungalow has been designed to create cross-ventilation and has natural penca roofs. These two features, combined with its unique overwater location, provide a cool atmosphere. Each room also enjoys a ceiling fan. The water supply comes from a natural spring located in a Natural Reserve (which is treated with a filtration process to render it fit for drinking). Electricity is available in the Bungalows from 18:00 until 8:30 am. The Bungalows and Rooms DO NOT have air-conditioning and hair dryers are NOT allowed. You are invited to enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience on the sea.
The hotel serves a free breakfast, free Wi-Fi, garden and bar, shuttle services and laundry facilities. In the vicinity you can snorkel, diving and hiking. The Eclypse Del Mar is located on the border of Bastimentos Island National Marine Park.
