Popa Island hotel description

Welcome to Urraca Private Islands Our Eco-Lodge and Private Pavillon provides an authentic island venue with excellent amenities and incredible opportunities to enjoy nature.
The Islands are protected by coral reef and are surrounded by turquoise and fluorescent ocean waters. The area presents diverse marine life and marine vegetation while offering breath taking panoramic views of Cayos Zapatillas, a very well appreciated site for nature lovers passionate.
It is the perfect place for a family getaway or for romance – it is a place to relax and enjoy the island lifestyle most of people dreamed about without ever been able to encounter it.
Ecotourism have here a new definition. Out of beaten path traveling is gorgeous, now imagine there is no path just a wonderful boat trip in between mangroves islands. You will find this small mangroves Island with your dedicated captain.
Now watch the welcome: you will meet capuchin monkey name Toutie, a ñeque name Lúa witch is here protected from being and endangered specie. At night a kinkajou name Quiso which is a night living animal will give you a little wink.
You will be served by authentical native Ngöbes which are used to give their hart without counting.
The encounter of that kind of civilization is so far away of what we know that it worth the visit in itself.
If not enough you will find this marine wonder that escape any description, including wild life and an unique heated natural pool.
Suspended between sea and sky in one of 4 small bungalows powered by solar panels, shower with rainwater, feast on catch of the day, swim in a natural pool & be pampered.
If not enough again you can have access to our private pavilion composed of a completely equipped house.
Choice is yours, the beauty of your travel experience is mine.

                          Our house was built by the Ngöbes Indians with their traditional techniques and local furniture.

                          The Ngöbes Indians are also employed by the resort, providing for them a place of employment and economic viability.
