We also use solar flashlights, candles and lanterns in the evening. It makes for a nice lighting and seems to keep the bugs away from our home. This is an amazing opportunity to step away from the buzz of the world we normally might be surrounded by. Truly get-away from it all.

                      The marker on the map is off.. Our property is an hour's drive north of the town of Bocas del Toro on the Isla Colon. The drive is through the beautiful jungle passing occasional local indigenous towns. The drive itself is like a jungle tour. The north side of the island is a gem in this spectacular archipelago. We are exposed to the open Caribbean with the stunning Bird Island in the view. Activities include relaxing, sea kayaking, bird watching, jungle hiking, surfing, swimming, eating fresh fruits off the property. It is a refreshing escape from town that can get hot and buggy. We seem to constantly have a breeze and are relieved to return to this part of the island after visiting town.

                      Other Activities: Kayaking, Boating, Wildlife Viewing

                      About the owner: We live there as often as possible- Which is only a few months per year at this time. Otherwise we are living in steamboat springs, Colorado. I have a 6 year old who loves time in Bocas!

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Larga:
                      It has been giving love and energy by hundreds of beautiful people who have helped it literally blossom from a plot of jungle into a unique plot of jungle with endless food growing in the trees. It is a special sanctuary.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      Remote, secluded, beautiful, close to nature, powerful, alive, real, away from technology, amazing views, tons of outdoor activities to experience- a place to revive the mind, body, and soul.
