La Loma Jungle Lodge, Bastimentos

La Loma Jungle Lodge Hotel, Bastimentos

At Bahía Honda on Bastimentos Island. "Incomparable rainforest retreat." 15min from Bocas town by water taxi

Experience something a little different. La Loma is a working butterfly farm that also accepts a small number of overnight guests. Relax in comfort in a hillside rancho overlooking a secluded bay, participate in tropical farm life or engage in a range of activities designed to bring you closer to the natural environment and local communities of this spectacular island.

La Loma's 23 hectares stretch up from the mangroves of Bahia Honda, through tropical forest, groves of cacao (chocolate), banana, and coconut to one of the highest points on Bastimentos Island. Accessible only by boat, La Loma offers peaceful isolation from the bustle of Bocas town. The land borders the spectacular National Marine Park and idyllic white sand beaches are only a 5-minute boat journey away.

Cool fresh water creeks run throughout La Loma and rock pools form natural Jacuzzis.The canopy tree house provides the perfect bird watching site and lush, nectar-rich gardens attract hundreds of butterflies.

They have built only 3 ranchos each nestled in a private location surrounded by verdant jungle. Using indigenous Ngobe Indian architecture as inspiration, they've created beautifully simple and comfortable retreats. Designed for two, each rancho has a private bathroom with hot water shower and furniture crafted from local materials.

Naturally fallen trees and sustainably harvested lumber have been used to build our structures. There are no TVs or air conditioners at La Loma, only the sounds of the jungle, cool breezes from the bay and binoculars to watch life in the treetops
