CHOOSE TRANQUILO BAY

  • CREATURE COMFORTS

    No need to give up your creature comforts here.

    Hot showers, air-conditioning, a comfortable bed, and handcrafted meals made with fresh local ingredients welcome you at the end of your adventures each day.

    Communal dining and private cabanas allow you to both share time with other guests and have your own private space.

  • PERSONAL SERVICE

    We understand that selecting a vacation destination is a tough decision. If you make the right choice, you experience a sustainable get-away. Make the wrong selection and you get lost in a crowd.

    Since 2005, guests have trusted us with their precious vacation time. We are passionate about observing wildlife and supporting individuals, families and groups. Our naturalist guides use hiking, kayaking and snorkeling to explore Bocas del Toro.

  • SPACE TO ROAM

    You want some space to move around during your vacation. Many accommodations look great in photos, but without much land they may feel confining.

    Each of our cabanas is spacious with plenty of room between you and your neighbors. Our nature preserve encompasses 200 plus heavily forested acres and over a kilometer of Panama’s Caribbean coastline.

  • OFF THE BEATEN PATH

    Using Tranquilo Bay as your base camp positions you to see and do more. If you are into eco-adventures such as birding and wildlife watching, hiking, snorkeling, kayaking or forest ecology, be prepared for the experience of a lifetime.

    You may book your vacation on an a la carte basis or select a package itinerary.

A 3-toed sloth baby clinging to its mother, a troop of capuchin monkeys, a hummingbird in its nest, green iquanas, brilliantly-colored ‘mini’ frogs, and even upside-down jellyfish — we saw it all at Tranquilo Bay! For a wildlife, rainforest and ocean experience all rolled into one, nothing can match Tranquilo Bay. The whole staff, including expert guides, will insure that you have the best time while enjoying a beautiful tropical environment and delicious food!

FIELD NOTES

MaMa makes the best snuggle bed! This baby Three-toed #Sloth naps while Mom hangs like a hammock from 4 different canopy tree limbs. For the baby, there is nothing unusual about weird sleeping positions since females give birth hanging #upsidedown . After 6-12 months in utero, a baby is born fully developed with open eyes, all its teeth and an enormous instinct to cling onto its mother’s fur. Baby literally hangs around with Mom for at least a year. ⁣

¡MaMa es la mejor cama para acurrucarse! Este bebé siesta perezoso de tres dedos mientras mamá cuelga como una hamaca de 4 ramas de dosel diferentes. Para el bebé, no hay nada inusual en las posiciones extrañas para dormir, ya que las hembras dan a luz colgadas al revés. Después de 6-12 meses en el útero, un bebé nace completamente desarrollado con los ojos abiertos, todos los dientes y un enorme instinto para aferrarse al pelaje de su madre. El bebé literalmente anda con mamá por al menos un año.⁣

I am completely digging this digital illustration of the Prothonotary Warbler.  I like the completed illustration and the opportunity to watch as each of the detail strokes fills in in video format.  Go check out @studioinsano to see his work and watch the video of how the detail comes together.⁣

We could not be more proud of these two boys.  They finished school at the beginning of May and then took FIVE advanced placement tests over the last two weeks in an attempt to receive college credit for some of the work they have completed.  The AP tests were all changed to 45 minute online exams.  The lottery that one receives a decent prompt of the many that are included for the one essay or if one can show his prowess in Spanish in less than 5 minutes of recorded responses is just that - a lottery.  This pandemic turned the exams upside down.  Whatever comes of it is okay. ⁣

No podríamos estar más orgullosos de estos dos niños. Terminaron la escuela a principios de mayo y luego tomaron CINCO exámenes de colocación avanzada durante las últimas dos semanas en un intento de recibir crédito universitario por parte del trabajo que han completado. Las pruebas AP se cambiaron a exámenes en línea de 45 minutos. La lotería de que uno recibe un aviso decente de los muchos que se incluyen para un ensayo o si se puede mostrar su destreza en español en menos de 5 minutos de respuestas registradas es solo eso: una lotería. Esta pandemia puso los exámenes al revés. Lo que venga de eso está bien.⁣
