At Tranquilo Bay, eco tourism isn’t just a catchy marketing phrase used to attract guests; it’s a way of life. We want to preserve the natural resources around us in order to maintain our eco adventure lodge for the long term and to pass on our legacy to our children – our guests come to Tranquilo Bay to see the natural resources that Bocas del Toro and Panama have to offer if we do not work to preserve them our business and our children’s future has a limited life span.
We painstakingly developed our secluded get-away for five years. During that time, we lived primitively in the jungle at the future site of the lodge, as we conducted research that would help us create an eco-friendly destination that protects and preserves the environment, while offering guests unparalleled access to nature at its natural best.
We work with several indigenous communities. These communities provide us guides on our excursions and prepare trails for tourist use to get a feel for indigenous life in Bocas del Toro.
We are members of Adesbo, a local NGO, and serve on the Environmental Subcommittee to help preserve the natural resources of Bocas del Toro.
