Our team has been hard at work to ensure that necessary measures are in place to ensure both guests and our team members remain safe and healthy.

Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge is taking precautions to minimize exposure by enacting protocols based on recommendations, guidelines, and requirements issued by numerous North American health organizations, international organizations, and the Panamanian public health agency.

PROGRAMMING ACTIVITIES & EXCURSIONS

Guests, except those traveling together, will attempt to remain 6’ apart during activities and excursions

Guides will be responsible for taking care of all Tranquilo Bay equipment at the end of a session. Equipment will be sanitized before and after use.

Guests (other than travel groups) should avoid congregating in groups larger than what will allow for a 6’ social distance

COVID WAIVER & SYMPTOMS

Travelers must provide a negative COVID test within 48 hours of arrival into Panama to their airline in order to board an international flight traveling to Panama.

Guests will be required to sign a COVID waiver prior to their stay stating that the guest agrees to forego involvement if they have any COVID symptoms, including a fever, dry cough, or other related symptoms. The waiver also states that Tranquilo Bay will not be held responsible if a guest contracts COVID before, during, or after a stay with us.

Guest’s temperature will be taken in a sanitary manner at breakfast each morning. If a guest has a temperature above 100.4, they will not be permitted to join in activities or be in public spaces that day.

Should a guest become ill during a stay for any reason, we will help them to receive appropriate medical attention, and they will (unfortunately) be required to remain quarantined for the remainder of their stay.

If a guest develops COVID symptoms, we are required by Panamanian law to inform the Panamanian public health agency.
