Tranquilo Bay is an owner-operated eco adventure lodge located on Isla Bastimentos, Bocas del Toro, Panama. We specialize in all-inclusive adventure eco tours and rejuvenation. Our secluded facility was designed to remove you from pressures of the real world and to comfortably immerse you in one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet.
Tranquilo Bay is adjacent to Bastimentos National Marine Park. We have over a kilometer of Caribbean coastline covered in coral gardens teaming with tropical fish. Our facilities encompass over 110 acres and three ecosystems, with over a mile of hiking trails full of wildlife. At least 75% of the acreage has been left to evolve in its natural state. Extreme biodiversity of flora and fauna, tropical rainforest, primary growth mangrove forest, incredible coral reef, and the Caribbean Sea are here for your onsite exploration.
The interior of each of our cabanas is tastefully and comfortably appointed with air-conditioning, local hardwoods, tile floors, fine linens and a calming color palette.
Each bedroom features a bed or beds, handcrafted for Tranquilo Bay, made from local hardwoods with an orthopedic mattress. Reading lamps and various books are also found within each bedroom. A small seating area adjacent to one of the windows and a closet round out the remainder of the bedroom.
The spacious granite countertop provides you with plenty of room for your belongings. Each bathroom includes a large walk-in shower with a full size water heater. Coffee makers, hair dryers and snack baskets are also located within the bathroom.
A covered porch with a hammock, Adirondack chairs and a ceiling fan await to help you escape the "every day" that you left behind when you enter the grounds at Tranquilo Bay.
Four cabanas have a breathtaking ocean view. Two cabanas have a luscious tropical jungle view.
The Main Lodge is where meals and indoor recreational activities take place. The ocean view and elevation over the jungle canopy are incredible. Our upstairs balcony is the perfect place to watch the sun rise with your morning coffee and the moon rise in the evening with a cold beverage. The monkeys and birds also travel through on their late afternoon feeding migration.
The interior of the main lodge building includes the dining room, the bar and an entertainment room which includes a television and a large book and video library.
On the second floor of the main lodge building a large porch wraps around two sides of the building giving you a bird's eye view into the jungle and of the Caribbean beyond.
The view from the main lodge building is exquisite. We built the building itself up so that you would be in the tree tops looking out onto the property, the animals and the ocean. There is no better vantage point in Bocas del Toro for relaxing and taking in the view than the second floor of this building.

The secluded western Caribbean coast of Panama is wild and undeveloped, which is exactly what makes fishing these waters so remarkable.

Tranquilo Bay is Panama's most deluxe and unique Caribbean fishing adventure, we specialize in intimate groups of 2 to 8 anglers to explore the most secluded and un-fished waters in Central America. We hope to put you on the fish of a lifetime soon.
Local fishermen in Bocas del Toro fish year-round for snapper, jacks and barracuda. When pursuing game fish the most consistent months are March through May and September through mid November. The Caribbean Sea in Panama tends to have waves, and more wind during the peak of winter and summer.
Seasonal offshore runs include Yellowfin, Blackfin, and Bigeye Tuna, Wahoo, Kingfish and big Yellowtail Snapper. Resident bottom fish in these waters consist of various grouper species, and snapper including Cuberas, Grays, Dogs, Blacks and Muttons. Whale Sharks, dolphins, and sea turtles are sometimes spotted in these pristine waters.
All fishing is done with light tackle on outfits ranging from 8-pound to 30-pound test line. We have both conventional and spinning tackle consisting of Shimano, Ande, and Falcon graphite rods equipped with Shimano reels. We also have a few fly-casting outfits with 9, 10 and 12 weight rods.
