We flew into Bocas and stayed in town for two nights while we researched our other accommodation options. We decided to treat ourselves to one or two nights at Tesoro Escondido and it ended up being our "home base" for our whole trip. We fell in love with the accommodations, the people and this slightly more remote part of the...

Tesoro was a beautiful, remote getaway that me and my boyfriend greatly enjoyed! The food was amazing, the owners maintained the perfect level of closeness & distance that we would like on a vacation. In particular, we had some trouble getting to the island (overbooked water taxis), but Monique went so far out of her way to make us comfortable...

Monique and her crew are awesome! Their kindness and help, smiles and spirit were so welcome. The Turtle Cottage was just right with the best sunrise straight off the deck. The atmosphere of the whole place was charming and cozy - just what we were looking for. The food was delicious and unique and I must say I wish we...

We just returned with my boyfriend from this wonderful trip to Panama. Staying at Monique's place certainly made this trip really special. After a couple of hours only we already felt at home at this georgous place. As Monique indicated the roads have been restaurated and we could actually go by bike from the hotel to town in 30 mins....

It can be hard to find the right label for Tesoro Escondido. Hotel? Not really. Hostel? Not quite. Eco-lodge? I suppose. To me, Tesoro Escondido truly felt like a home away from home or like visiting really cool and eccentric relatives in a very exotic location. If you are looking for a fenced in Sandals Resort sorta place this is...

I always look forward to my return visits to this beautiful piece of Heaven!! The views are postcard-perfect! There is nothing to change about this great spot - I will keep returning - I doubt I'll ever get tired of being here!

Tesoro escondido is a very good option if you're staying in Colon, Bocas. It's just next to an almost private beach (mind the big waves of playa Bluff.). The rooms are quiet and at a very good price (we paid 40 USD per night). We found the food offered a bit expensive , but there is a kitchen available for...

After all the great reviews we decided to check out this place during our trip to Bocas. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The location is more than perfect, but the accommodation could really need some deep cleaning, upgrading and some maintenance. We found souvenirs of the past few guests in our bungalow and the equipment in the kitchen could have been...

This is a true hot spot in central america! due to the fact that we were the only guests there is was even more privat, silent and relaxing then it would be during high season. the location is one of the most beautiful i have ever experienced. The dolphin lodge is just a perfect place to be, just hanging in...
