The SpaceThe house is made using a commercial Aluminum frame & glass system. The interior walls are teak, as is the floor & al the decks, which are extensive. The roof is a Bali inspired design, bamboo frame with thatch, it has a steel secondary roof to ensure no leaks. The kitchen features a 20 foot long marble island. the ceilings are bamboo & are 10 feet tall. Each room has AC & a ceiling fan. The third bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds, the other has a queen bedroom & the master has a king bed. Both bathrooms have outdoor showers, which are out of this world. Guest AccessWe have a 150 foot long pier, to access the water for day trips. There is an amazing walk up on the ridge of the island that would make David Suzuki excited! We have a canoe & a paddle board (fee as it was expensive & the expensive paddles can be damaged) for use. We also will have a couple of boats & a captain to take you to town. Day trips would be an extra fee, as well as water skiing & trip to the big island Boca Bravo. Trips to the marine park & fishing to Hannibal bank can be arranged. Interaction with GuestsOur manager David & his wife Linda are on the island & manage & live on the property. They stay down by the water at our new cottage. The NeighborhoodThe neighbors all have fur & are generally under 3 feet tall. They stick to themselves, but tend to be noisy at dusk & dawn. If you want to communicate, best to use a internet based phone service on our wireless internet. We also have decent cell coverage on the island, Cell phones can be had for about $20 & you can just get a pay as you go plan. The coverage even extends out to the marine park. In fact the top surf island in Chiriqui, Isla Silva has cell coverage, which is weird, but cool to have. You can call home & tell them when you are coming home for dinner. Getting AroundYou would take a short 5 minute cab ride from the airport to the boat launch at Petragal. We would then transport our guests with our new boat. There are two ports that are closer to Isla Boca Chica (formerly known as Isla Meurtos) One is Chorcha (1/4 of the road is dirt & bumpy. However it is the best place to leave a vehicle. The turn off the highway only takes about 12-14 minutes from David. Then it is another 10-20 minutes depending on how tolerant you are to bumps! There is another port, La Vuelta, further out but close to the highway. This is Panama, always nice to have a 4 X 4. The roads take a pounding in the rainy season! Other Things to NoteThis is a nature preserve. Not anything like Cancun. So do not expect it. If you expect untouched fauna & sounds of the jungle you will be thrilled. We do have high speed internet & Netflix's. However sometimes the speed varies. The Magic Jack phone works well at times & at other times it is poor. Welcome to Latin America. We have invested well over $50,000 on our power system, but there is a limit to what the system can handle. AC being left on all day will crash our system. We generate 95% of our power with our solar panels. When there is a larger group of guests over, the generator can be turned on at night for 1 - 3 hours & everything (AC units) can turned on at that point & all rooms can be cooled so that the system has little problem maintaining a comfortable temperature to sleep in. There are 1-2 places in Boca Chica that you can go for dinner & lunch at Isla Palenque may be able to be arranged. But it would be an additional trip & a boat fee involved. So this is a bring your groceries & cook your self kind of stay.There is a dishwasher & a large fridge/freezer with crushed ice. We may be able to arrange dinner at night to give a more relaxed stay. The produce is amazing. If you make up a list we can arrange for the food to be bought & stored when you arrive. We have a deep freeze in the boat garage, so holding meat & fish for 1-2 weeks is no problem. I highly recommend this option. Shopping in David is hot & very time consuming. It is not a holiday activity in my opinion.

      Mango Bay is like arriving at Jurassic Park. We are on a 400 acre nature preserve, we are the only full time residents on the island. If you like to see Dolphins, eagles, parrots, monkeys & catch & eat fresh fish, then you will love it here. This is nothing like an all inclusive resort. This is natural Panama, no discos or gambling. But we do have fantastic sunrises & calm water, perfect for paddling or water skiing. We give our guests great service (see our 5 star reviews) & have on site American managers & a knowledgeable local boat captain. We have 3 boats to get you to all the amazing spots so close to our island. The villa is comprised of three 800 foot Steel, Teak & Bamboo platforms. Smaller parties need just rent one of the pavilions for the sleeping accommodations. Each of the rooms has an incredible view, as the walls are glass. The first room has 2 sets of bunk beds, end table & lamp. It also has a large armoire for clothing. The second room on the same platform has a nice queen bed, cool hardwood chair, armoire & two end tables with lamps. Both rooms are 100 square feet each. They share a bathroom right beside the rooms & it has a huge outdoor shower. The master is on its own 800 foot platform & has an attached 3 room master bath & its own covered porch with teak deck furniture. This room has a king bed, armoire, desk for your laptop, two end tables, chest & another ornamental cabinet. The home has a Bali theme, furniture is also that theme & so is the thatch covered bamboo post & beam roof system. This 60 foot long roof covers the villa's three 40 foot long pavilions & the bodega which houses the laundry room, sporting equipment & the off grid power system. Yes, we have a large array of solar panels & a new large set of batteries to store the power of the sun in Panama. There is a back of generator for cloudy days.The walls are glass, which will give you the feeling of living in the jungle, but of course you have all the conveniences. AC in every room, high speed internet, Netflix's & crushed ice. We are just making out 2 bedroom cottage available to rent to compliment the big villa or it could be rented on it's own. It also features a 240 foot covered veranda & a large table for dining. It has a convection oven, large fridge, 3 burner stove top, induction element & a barbecue on the large veranda. There is a deep freeze in the attached boat garage for putting your catch of the day. Each room has an over head fan & we are installing ac this November. The cottage has Exterior Insulated foam system, acrylic stucco. Which means it is well insulated. The windows are dual pane, crank style which is also unlike what you usually find in Panama. It has a high vaulted ceiling. The kitchen is good sized with all the utensils , pans & a dining table for 4 inside. The pier is just 50 feet in front & at high tide, we often just pull the boat out behind the place. Then walk onto our cement boat ramp that comes up behind the attached boat garage. So it is ideal for a small group of fishermen. It may also be used for an especially large group, or if there are over 6 men & they do not want to sleep in the same bed as another one of the group members. We have our new high efficiency Perkins diesel generator. To ensure there is always a way to keep the rooms cool at night. We do not intend for our guests to stay in their rooms all day under the AC. That is NOT possible in an off grid environment. Not with out running a fossil fuel generator 24 hours a day. But we want to ensure guests a comfortable nights sleep. The property was inhabited years ago, but was never logged off. So it has incredible trees, some fruit bearing, (Mango, Avocado, lime, coconut, bananas, pineapples & Plantains to name a few. View birds & monkeys for a truly tropical ambiance. The calm, warm waters are accessed by our 150 foot long pier. It is great to go for a swim, paddle from or to water ski off of. Access to all the fishing in the bay & out into the Hannibal bank is a must. One of our boats can get you right into the marina at Petragal in about 40 minutes. Petragal is just 4 minutes from the airport & only 10 minutes from the city of David. However it is only a 12 minute boat ride to the community of Chorcha. They just paved the road there & that cuts the time to town down to just over 15 minutes. I just love all these infrastructure projects being completed in Panama!!

Interaction with GuestsI am not down there often enough to lend a hand to most guests. However our property manager Victor & his family are on site. I also encourage the guests to call on our free phone system to anywhere in the US or Canada. If you have questions, feel free to call me on my cellular when you arrive.

Between the sounds of the howler monkeys, parrots & many other large & small birds. Including our resident eagle ( Eddie). We have a pod of Dolphins swim by our pier on a daily basis. Be careful not to step on all the poison dart frogs. Not that it will hurt you, but they are so cute you do not want to harm them. The trees are impressive & we have many different types of fruit trees on the property. Banana, Plantain, Mango, Lemon, Orange, Papaya, 40 Pine Apple plants. We have 9 Avocado trees that produce massive fruit from April to July. There is a knarly walk on the Spine of the island that is worth exploring first thing in the am. before it gets hot. Getting AroundVictor will pick you up at the port of your choice. He is often your ride to your next adventure in the nearby marine Park. We also use our friend Daniel. he has a 31 foot, twin engine & he takes groups farther out to explore, the Secas or Isla Ladrones. He is an expert spear fisherman & has worked for years catching Lobsters. Other Things to NoteYou will need to arrange for pick up food & beverages . If you call me. I can put you in touch with a man I use in David who is very trust worthy. He can purchase what you need in advance. So that when you get off the plane. He can already have your items in the cooler on the boat. So then he just picks you up & takes you to the public dock in Petragal. Which is only 5 minutes away from the airport.
