Family Retreat! Lodge and Cabins in Panama

199,000  77 acres  Lyn McKee 

This stunning mainland property in Bocas del Toro is 31 Hectares (71+ acres) of beautiful, natural Panama. Located in the Caribbean lowlands, the land features Caribbean views overlooking the Archipelago of Bocas Del Toro. The land is partly original jungle and hundreds of trees have been planted in previously cleared areas. The rolling terrain provides great views from many levels. Plantings include bananas, plantains, cacao, papaya, avocado, guanabana, cherimoya, papaya, coffee and pineapple.

There are many beautiful small streams and waterfalls located on the land that will provide you with all of the water you could ever need, including enough to generate free electricity all year. Caribbean views and breezes follow the property up the valley to provide an agreeable year-round climate with temperatures of 27c or 80 f. A gentle Caribbean rain almost daily feeds all the wonderful streams, plants and trees keeping this property perennially green and lush.

Purchase price includes: 4 rustic cabins of which 3 are riverfront, a lodge with great Caribbean views, tool shed, greenhouse, water system and a soon to be completed micro hydro system for free electricity.

here is a small solar system for charging computers and telephones, and a gas stove is used for cooking. The fully-functional kitchen has amazing views and drinking water is provided from a rainwater catchment system, shower water from a natural wellspring. Trails have been cut through the jungle and the areas around the cabins are cleared; the rest is natural and home to many birds and a wide variety of wildlife. There are three fenced-in pastures with water for horses or other livestock.

The current owners hike in and use their horses to carry supplies; however, there is a designated easement for the property if one wishes to build a road for added convenience. There is electric and public water close by if you choose to be added to the grid or stay off grid and be a part of the green movement. The public hospital is close by located on the main road in Rambala. Local seafood is readily available in Chiriquí Grande which is located on Laguna de Chiriquí home to coral reefs and the Bocas islands. Rambala is a clean and friendly town with a good sized mountain stream running through it.

Originally built as an eco-lodge with rustic romantic guest cabins, this beautiful place would also be an ideal for survival compound. The future coastal road from Colon will connect the entire country and improve transportation to the area which will greatly increase the property value, making this also a good investment property.
