About Poli Rodriguez

Speaks English, Spanish, Portuguese, intermediate French.

Poli Rodriguez purchased this house in 2011

Why Poli Rodriguez chose Panama

Amazing archipelago in Caribbean, special and unforgettable place in Central America.

Rich nature, sea life around, clear and clean waters, quiet and peaceful area, close enough to town, but out of noise and touristic places.

Cozy and spacious house.

Amazing mountains and ocean views.

What makes this house unique

Paraiso Escondido has been created from the desire of having a peaceful life integrated with nature. Located in a tranquil spot in the Caribbean sea, lush, unspoiled and charming. A place full of surprises and beauty. The dream of being at sea is a unique feeling. We prioritize the proper attention and dedication to the guests by their owners and staff. A place where everyone enjoys an excellent stay in Bocas del Toro. Get surprised by dolphins swimming just in front of the house and watch different beautiful fishes at the coral reef few steps of the house. Unforgettable views 360 degrees.

The best over the water house in town. The original Yellow/Blue house from Big Bight, Isla Colon.

We would love to help you to decide if this house and location are the best for you and your family or friends.

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We booked with Poli last minute and it was the best decision. Not only is this home incredibly clean, well maintained and in good working order, but it has magnificent views. It runs off of solar and rain water, so Eco friendly. It has a caretaker, Beto, that lives in the mangroves behind the houses. He was phenomenal, he even caught Bonita fish and cooked them for us. The house we stayed in (blue house) has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, kitchen with all the needs covered including simple things that you don't think of like salt & pepper, cooking oil, paper towel, dish soap etc. (we have stayed plenty of places that don't have this). There is a nice sized family room with DVD player and a folder full of movies. It even has a glass floor to fish watch. But the best part is the outdoor patio with dining table, hammock, lounge chairs, Adirondack chairs and sofa. It is a great space. Large deck with ladder to get in and out of water, deep enough to jump in too. The docks around the house are well maintained (no splinters or stray nails) and great for sea life watching. While we were there we saw more fish under the dock than on some snorkel trips, you can feed them little bits of food and they are happy to come very close. We saw Dolphins, sting rays, and a spotted Eagle Ray from the house. Trips into town were easy and Beto took care of all the luggage and groceries on and off the boat. This is such an inedible place, I can't say enough about it. Thanks for everything Poli and Beto.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent three weeks at the yellow house and loved every minute. Poli and Lyo were wonderful hosts. The house was clean and the setting was amazing. The house is off the grid but still has the amenities you absolutely need. Out of the three weeks, we only had about 4-5 days of all day rain. Be sure to go to Paunch Beach and have lunch at Paki Point. Watch surfers and enjoy a cold beer! Beto was our onsite caretaker and boat captain and did a marvelous job.

Owner's Response: Hello Kathee! Thank you for your review and for finding us :) You were incredible guests and its very pleasant to see how much you enjoyed the house, that is and always will be our goal, having the house better and better for our guests enjoy it. Yes, you are right, Paunch beach and the beach bar are excelents and has easy access. Just a small note/tip: being a beach with waves and currents, pay close attention when entering the water. Hope to see you again. Best wishes, Poli & Lyo

It is truly a Hidden Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in the "Yellow" house. The owners, Lyo & Poli could not have been more responsive and genuinely interested in making our stay comfortable, interesting and relaxing. The home is simple, clean, and comfortable. You must realize you are "off the grid" here so there are concessions to be made. No hair dryers, no A/C, no coffee maker, no kitchen aid mixers in the kitchen. If you need to have these creature comforts this is not the place for you. If you want to get away and be able to snorkel in beautiful coral right off your front porch, enjoy an absolutely stunning view from the comfort of your home, be able to travel to town every day for good food and activities (after a few days we found just being at the house gave us plenty of options), then this is the place for you. We had local fisherman come up to the house in dug out canoe and offer lobster to us ($1 each). We rented kayaks and were able to kayak through mangroves in absolutely pristine conditions. We had terrific neighbors(I suspect this was not by chance because these homes attract people who appreciate the beauty this spot has to offer). Twice we had small glitches-propane ran out and hot water stopped. Both times the on-site caretaker had them fixed in a matter of minutes. People mention the no-see-ums. They are there twice a day like clock work...about 20-30 minutes at dawn and dusk. They are not bad compared to what we are used to in South Carolina. We gladly accepted this minor "inconvenience" for what we got in return by being there. We are already plotting ways to take more time next year to rent this home and be back in Paraiso Escondido (Hidden Paradise) again.

Owner's Response: Hello Rick, Thank you very much for your review and your wonderful visit. We are very happy you enjoyed the house, the beautiful coral, area and Bocas. Thank you for your very detailed review, we sure do whatever is possible to become your stay more confortable and pleasant as possible. One of the reason we have a caretaker 24x7 caring about your confort so we can offer the right place for those who love nature, relaxing and enjoying the life in a special place. Bocas del Toro has a lot of things to offer but being out of downtown brings all these benefits we have in our area :) Hope you return in the future- bienvenidos. Poli & Lyo

Perfect Tropical Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the blue house during our 5 days in Bocas. The house was one of my favorite lodgings on any trip. The view/water is beautiful-- hard to find the motivation to do anything but sit on the deck looking out. It is very private. The house is clean, updated, and aesthetically very pleasing. Exactly as pictured. Poli and Leo were wonderful hosts and very helpful. Everything was upfront in e-mails exchanged before hand including transfers/ taxis etc. I can't say enough good things about it. I suppose if you can't live without AC or are not looking for a relatively isolated spot this may not be for you, but for us the open windows and private location were perfect.

Owner's Response: Hola Katie, Thank you for your staying with us and for your review. You are right, being over the water brings to the house the breeze and ventilated environment and for those who can not live without air conditioning they have to consider a place in town and also double check places who offer a/c running under solar system. Best wishes, Poli & Lyo

Relax in Bocas

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely a great place if you want to relax, relax, relax. You cannot beat the views from the house. We were in the yellow one. Quit well appointed and if you find you need anything else; Poli will make it happen. She is very helpful (speaks English and Spanish) in many ways. We enjoyed scuba diving very much. Not any different than most of the Caribbean but the water is super nice. 84 degrees! We also visited Isla Bastimento and Red Frog Beach. Also we did the ZipLine there. That was very fun and safe. The Isla was beautiful, but it was very rainy the day we went so not much beach time. Be ready to take it easy and really relax.

Adventures in Bocas

  • 5 of 5

We are back in snowy Minneapolis after a week in Bocas del Toro. We rented both houses as a group of seven and had a fantastic time. The houses are perfect for an adventuresome group. We spent time at Starfish (average beach), Zapatillos, and Dolphin Bay using Poli and Leo's boat as our guide service. Fees were very fair and Ronaldo was the best guide! You are away from the main town, but Ronaldo was at the ready daily to take us in for groceries or shopping. Bocas is a party get away- great food is to be found, fun bars, friendly people. Not the most beautiful beaches in the world but great snorkeling and boating. No regrets in this trip. Poli and Lyo work hard at preparing the homes and supporting whatever your goals are. They provided us a beautiful family feast of lobster and mahi-mahi. You should expect to rough it a little bit - no daily maid service, basic kitchen, small twin beds in one room, no AC (never missed it because of the breeze). Bring DEET - the no-see-ums will tear you up (all day, not just at dusk). We experienced daily rain and maybe three days of some sun, but still loved every minute of our time. Gracias, Poli, Lyo & Ronaldo!

Owner's Response: Hi Susan and friends! It was a pleasure to have a wonderful friends group at both houses and see all fun you had and enjoyed all days here at Paraiso Escondido. Thank you for your review and for being here :) about the chitras (sand flies) some people dont feel them others have some kind of allergy reaction, we do recommend to have insect repellent with you but they are most common during sunset and if theres no breeze at all. We have mosquitoes net in the windows at the bedrooms which truly helps. Hope you return in the future! Gracias, Poli & Lyo
