Host Review Score

Elisabeth & Ulrich
CocoVivo is not your typical resort– we are located on an off-the-grid, island in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago (solar electricity, rain water supply and outdoor amenities). Our cabins are located over a turquoise bioluminescent lagoon with calm waters for snorkeling a kayaking. Surround yourself with the tranquility of island life, while enjoying all the comforts and adventures our retreat has to offer. Dive into turquoise waters, snorkel the healthy coral reef or relax in a colorful hammock on our common dock. This destination is perfect for eco-adventurers and for those who want a peaceful escape to a remote island paradise!
Welcome to CocoVivo Panama! We are your hosts, Elisabeth and Ulrich, an adventurous couple from Canada and Germany who've fallen in love with this hidden treasure, Bocas del Toro Archipelago. We have lived here for 18 years and are happy to call this little nook of the world home. Let us answer any of your questions about off-the-grid living and guide you through your stay! Whether it's arranging transportation, picking the right cabin for you, cooking for you in our on-site kitchen or guiding you through a jungle hike, we're here to make your stay magical, and one to remember. We treat our guests like family, and invite you to experience paradise with us!
Isla San Cristóbal is the best kept secret of the Bocas del Toro islands. We are a 30-minute boat ride from the main town on Isla Colón, set on a quiet lagoon off the beaten path. The boat ride is included in the nightly rate, but please contact us to arrange your pickup time and location. Coral reef surrounds the banks of the island, along with mangroves and calm, clear water. Our island is home to two indigenous communities, as well as a small community of expatriates. Take a kayak to the nearest restaurant, or join us for a private tour of the local beaches!
