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...

I spent three nights at Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge in May, 2016, and I have nothing but good things to say. It is a quality vacation place away from the hustle and bustle, but with easy access to nearly everything that Bocas del Toro has to offer. If you want nightlife and funky restaurants, this is not the place--stay...

Loved this place! Great owners with a lot of knowledge. You can do great hikes on the property itself. The rooms are lovely and the garden is just beautiful! Would have love to stay longer and explore the environment more. If you like adventure and things to do on you holiday, this is the place to be!

My wife and I stayed here for a week as part of a birding tour with Victor Emanuel Nature Tours of Bocas del Toro. Our tour group were the only guests of Jim, Jay and Renee (the developers and owners of Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge).

We recently spent 5 days at Tranquilo Bay as a group of 14 (including 8 children, between the ages of 3 and 10).

They were able to tailor any activity or excursion perfectly...
