Bocas_del_Toro_Archipelago_map

We are happy and proud to share tropical paradise with you.  We are located on Isla Bastimentos close to the beach and volunteer programs.  We provide you a number of great accommodation options in the best areas of Bocas del Toro.  Your options include an oceanfront eco-friendly tent lodge, island volunteer house, and jungle lodge.  Please review the accommodation options below.

PALMAR TENT LODGE

Our good friends Chris and Kristin run the show here and are awesome hosts for volunteers of Give & Surf.  Palmar is a great option for those wanting to spend their free time close to the beach and unwinding in peace after volunteering.  This is where you will find many of the best activities offered in Bocas del Toro including hiking, surfing, and exploring the beaches and reefs along the slew of beaches.

PRIVATE ISLAND VOLUNTEER HOUSE

For long-term volunteers staying longer than a two weeks your accommodations are provided on a secluded island in the bay.  This small private island provides for a relaxing and comfortable living situation close to surf, the programs, and Bocas Town.  The home is equipped with a kitchen, solar energy, rain catchment water, beautiful water views, and an acre and a half of land to enjoy.  We can accommodate four long-term volunteers in bunk beds at the house.

LA LOMA JUNGLE LODGE

Enjoy jungle treehouse living, incredible food, and great service with our family at La Loma while we introduce you to our projects and the Bahia Honda community.  Enjoy your days in the islands by giving back to the community with us, enjoying the islands top attractions, and the wonderful environment created by La Loma.  Your hosts have called Bahia Honda home for nine years and have developed a wonderful experience for its guests.  If interested please email info@thejunglelodge.com and let them know you would like the volunteer package during your stay.

This variation of the dart frog is found only on Bastimentos island in Bocas del Toro and is the most toxic. They usually hide under leaves and undergrowth in the tropical rain forest and stay to themselves. We love seeing these guys and treating them with respect!
