  • Descrição


    We are an Eco-Adventure Lodge nestled at the edge of the jungle, just steps from the beach. Our remote location offers guests the opportunity to truly get away.

    We strive to be as low-impact as possible in an effort to conserve our natural world by carefully weighing the environmental impact of every decision we make, from the supply chain of our food, to the electricity that powers the resort.

    We believe the most important tenet of ecotourism is having a positive impact on local communities. Salt Creek (Quebrada Sal) is a Ngäbe-Buglé indigenous village located 30 minutes by foot from our place. Salt Creek is one of the largest and most remote Ngäbe villages in the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Our team of 15 full time staff members support approximately 200 family members. We frequently look for ways to support our local community and work in partnership with them to achieve community goals.

    Our current community project is supporting the build out of a 2 story medical clinic. This will be the first medical clinic Salt Creek ever has.
