Too many great things to say about this place! I spent four nights in the dorms and absolutely loved my experience. Beds were clean, the tent spacious and the other guests were friendly. The central area with the lounge and dining area was a great place to hang out. I really appreciated disconnecting from the rest of the world, spending...

Wow, what a truly beautiful place. Amazingly helpful owners and staff during my stay. Waking up every morning to the ocean and jungle sounds will never leave me. And to zen out with yoga every morning in their yoga studio - what more do you need? Tasty, within budget food and a great happy hour! Such a great environment suited...

Great food, great happy hour, lovely yoga classes and an even lovelier view of Red Frog Beach. The luxury tents were a great break from typical destination accommodations! Sebastian and Aaron were incredibly helpful and knowledgable on activities for the island and Bocas Town, and all the staff were wonderful. Thanks so much guys!

I stayed at Palmar for about 3 weeks. I was blown away by the place. I'm backpacking through Central America and it was my first stop. Apart from the friendly and welcoming staff that go out of their way to make sure that you are having the best possible time, from booking tours, offering suggestions on what to do, including...

We stayed two nights in one of the tents in January. The jungle and beach were beautiful. The tent was really nice too with a comfy bed and locking trunk for our stuff. It was humid and hot, but we slept great. The fan was helpful. The bathrooms and showers were clean and we didn't ever have to wait to...

My husband and I came here in our stay at Isla Bastimentos island. It's such a unique place and truly special. They have daily yoga, the food (breakfast and dinner) are delicious, the beach is breathtaking from sun up to sun down, there's swings, beach chairs and hammocks galore to cozy up on and read or just nap and relax....

We stayed here four nights in one of their larger tents with two double beds meant to accomodate 4 people. It would be quite tight with 4 people in there! But the tents were otherwise very comfortable, with reading lights and a lockable storage chest for valuables. We did have some visitors in the night, including a cat who managed...

Palmar tent lodge is a beautiful place but unfortunately lacked security. We intended to stay for 4 nights but shortened it to two. Unfortunately on the first night we had money stolen from our tent. Indeed, it is written on the website to put valuable in the chest, which we did apart from our day purse. Since we were only...

Accommodation and location: Arriving by boat and a quick path through the jungle, you come out onto truly picture perfect Red Frog Beach. Palmar's tents and cabins are nestled in the jungle right on the beach. The accommodations are on par with what you should expect anywhere that is truly Eco friendly, but I still found them really comfortable. The...
