Villa Coco, in the heart of Santa Catalina, is a luxury boutique hotel and one of the most famous in the small and picturesque town. We are a family-run hotel with nine rooms spread around a lush green garden, where you can enjoy ultimate tranquility and relaxation. The Restaurant "Ai Mamita" on-site serves you breakfast, lunch, and dinner with top-notch and heartful service. The Panamanian fusion culinary experience is a Seafood and Meat restaurant with locally sourced ingredients (vegetarian options available). Enjoy a Pina Colada or a maracuya smoothie at the pool bar. Our one-of-a-kind infinity pool offers a unique refreshment on site. Villa Coco is located 15 min walk or 5 min bike ride (free) from Playa Estero, a famous spot to learn surfing and enjoy the beach. The town center, 10 minutes away, offers multiple restaurants and bars and the takeoff spot for the UNESCO world heritage Coiba, bookable in the hotel. All rooms have ultimate privacy with AC, a safety box, amenities, and cozy beds. Read your book on your own terrace and enjoy a shower outdoors. Free parking & Wifi are available.
