Set out at sea Urraca Private Island is an adults-only eco lodge located in the calmest, most pristine area of the Bocas del Toro archipelago, on the northern Caribbean coast of Panama. Only 30 minutes away by boat from Isla Colon you will find this secluded paradise. An adults-only eco lodge on a mangrove island with no actual land, where every structure is built on stilts over the water, connected by docks.

Our close proximity to mangrove forests, seagrass meadows, and coral reefs will allow you to easily explore different ecosystems. The fresh meals from our gourmet restaurant will captivate your senses (vegan menu available). Our fish and seafood are the catch of the day and cooked with love.

Francine has done an amazing job in creating this fabulous resort. We stayed for 4 nights and the food, drinks and conversation were truly memorable and something we will cherish forever. The New Year’s Eve lobsterfest and fireworks extravaganza was spectacular. To waking up with the sun rising over the water to the great staff. Francine created a magical relaxing experience we will never forget

We stayed for our honeymoon at the Urraca Private Island Eco-Lodge in June. We took the Honeymoon Package. We were a bit insecure, as it was above our small budget, but the photos, descriptions, and reviews made it sound so good... And OMG it was!!! The landscape, the PEACE, the great service, the comfy hut, and the food!! If you are doubting, don't any more! Just go to the Urraca Private Island. Francine, thank you for your attention. You found the right way between watching every detail and need and giving space. Awesome! Alicia, your cooking is THE BEST! Although the day you weren't... Yasmin was an excellent substitute! Isabel, you have magic hands made for massages! Soooo gooood And Gig, Zola, Zizu (I'm not sure I'm writing the names right) were also very good hosts! And so cute! 5* service in a kind of lost island. It may not be a 5* installation, but you won't notice. I miss being there...

I cannot express how wonderful this trip was. We stayed for five nights in the Honeymoon suite. The views are stunning, and the whole mangrove is so quiet. Electricity is limited, but it is is a great place to unplug and recharge. You can always charge your phones and cameras, and Wi-Fi is available every where if you do not want to completely disconnect. The living quarters are rustic but comfortable. The rainwater showers are refreshing, and there is always a private place to get some alone time if needed. Obviously, the tropics of Panama are hot so be prepared to sweat, but you can always find a cooling breeze or jump into the clear water surrounding you. The monkeys are majestic and entertaining. My husband and I spent hours watching and interacting with them. I am literally grieving the food. Not a lot of variety, but it was fresh, clean, and tasty. I felt like a new person eating clean for a few days. The dining is communal so go prepared to make friends. Our host, Francine, was a delight. She is so kind and accommodating. She booked our tours to Zapatilla Island (practically a private beach), a chocolate farm, and our massages. The only negative is that to get the mangrove, it is an expensive 30 minute boat ride so plan to stay awhile to make your $$ worth it. This is an experience of a life time. You will remember a stay at Urraca for the rest of your life.

Staying at Urraca is definitely one of the best decisions my boyfriend and I made on our trip to Bocas. I highly recommend staying a few nights rather than just the tour. During our 2 night stay we were able to experience this beautiful island and everything it has to offer from the amazing mangroves, to the playful monkeys. I can not put into words amazing our experience with Francine and the monkeys was. Not only did we get to hang out and take pictures with the monkeys, we got to enjoy the natural beauty the resort has to offer. We spent a lot of time in the multiple hammocks that are set up throughout the resort as well as snorkeling around the mangroves. Hanging out and watching the monkeys was hands down one of the unbelievable things we have done. They have so much character and are so fascinating to watch and engage with. However the runner up best part of our stay here was the delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner cooked and served by Francine and her amazing staff. Francine's cooking is as beautiful in flavor as it is in presentation. We were blown away after every meal. If she is offering lobster you must say yes or else you will be passing up a dining experience you will never forget. Also if you like Bloody Marys ask Francine to make one for you and you wont regret it. I highly recommend stay at Urraca, it is an experience you will not forget!

My husband and I were absolutely enchanted by Uracca Eco Resort! From the time Francine scheduled our water taxi to the island until we hugged her goodbye, we had the best time! A bit of advice, use one of Uracca's preferred captains- they are experts, and you will have a faster, smoother ride. But back to the island, it is paradise! We loved being able to explore on the kayaks, including seeing the indigenous town nearby, relaxing on the swings and hammocks all over the island, and swimming around the mangroves. PLUS, THE MONKEYS! The experience of having lunch with a tamarin (meals were all delicious, btw), holding the "baby and teenage" howler monkeys, and watching the capuchin and squirrel monkeys play was the best part of our vacation in Panama. Highly recommend!
