La Loma Jungle Lodge and Chocolate Farm
La Loma, Jungle Lodge and Chocolate Farm is located on Bastimentos Island in Panama. The grounds take up 23 hectares of forest land that includes coconut, banana and cocoa trees. The La Loma lands extend upward from Bahia Honda to the highest point of the island. The National Marine Park shares a border with La Loma. Beautiful white sandy beaches are only a short 5 minute boat ride away. The only access to the B&B is by boat.
Only 3 guestrooms are available at the lodge. This is mainly due to the fact that the management wants to ensure that there is never a harsh impact on the natural environment surrounding the area. Babbling brooks tumble over rocks within the grounds, with secluded rock pools located around the property, creating Jacuzzis provided by nature. The accommodations have been built with the intention of creating an indigenous Indian dwelling. The structures are built of wood that has been harvested from naturally fallen trees. There are no televisions, nor are there air conditioners.
