Love the Overwater Bungalows at Punta Caracol Acqua Lodge

This Panama eco-lodge is built on stilts in the water off Isla Colon. Isla Colon is the main tropical island in Bocas del Toro, an archipelago of islands along Panama’s Caribbean coast.

If you love being close to the water you might just want to bookmark these overwater bungalows for a future trip! Here’s why you’ll love bunking down in these Bocas del Toro bungalows on the water.

There’s amazing snorkeling

The lodge is built over a thriving coral reef, where the snorkeling is nothing short of fabulous! Simply put on your mask and fins and step down the ladder hanging off your deck.

These huts on the water are gaily painted in pastel colors of yellow and mint green. Sporting thatched roofs and large decks, they use conch shells instead of door handles.

They’re cute 

Being unplugged – priceless!

There is no TV, no radio, no telephone and no electricity to plug in your electronic toys (but there is a communal charging dock for cell phones and tablets in Punta Caracol’s restaurant).


There are few mozzies

You’ll encounter far fewer mozzies and no-see-ums at Punta Caracol because it’s built over the Caribbean Sea, where it’s blessed with good breezes.


It’s an eco-friendly operation

Punta Caracol gets kudos for striving to be as environmentally responsible as possible. Natural building materials were used in building the lodge.


The orange sunsets are spectacular

We loved reading quietly at the end of the day and watching the sun set from the cushioned wood lounge chairs and hammock on our private balcony.
