Nomad Tree Lodge isn’t for everyone…
Off-grid terrain and climbing 60 stairs to your cabin high in the RAINforest jungle canopy isn’t for everyone. Water conservation and eco conscious traveling isn’t for everyone. Walking to the islands best shallow reef break isn’t for everyone.

It’s for anyone looking to escape the 4 walls of a hotel room and experience something truly unique. Nomad Tree Lodge is for the wanderers, the seekers; is it for you?

The space
Your private 156 sq ft cabin with a 58 square foot patio is situated on an amazing rainforest hillside. Connect with nature and experience the jungle while still enjoying a comfortable bed, electricity, wifi and access to a modern bathroom and kitchen. Enjoy being high up in the trees, listening to the waves of the ocean crash, or walk less than 5 minutes to the beach to watch the sunrise over the ocean.

The cabin sits above the ground in the trees and is fully screened in, so you enjoy the view and ocean breeze without any bugs. That means you don't have to sleep with an annoying bug net. They may look cute and exotic, but we've found bug nets are really no fun to sleep under. Each cabin features a queen-sized cooling gel memory foam mattress, lockable cabinetry and desk.

The private 70 foot square foot bathroom is detached from the A-frame, but is very closely connected to the cabin (less than a minute walking distance). The bathroom includes an open air shower with a rainfall shower. All rooms are fully furnished with linens, towels, and soap. Plus each room includes umbrellas for the occasional rainy day.

Please note, the color of your cabin can vary. We have multiple cabins spread out on our 2.5 acre property. The central common areas of the lodge are all have great wifi access. Each of the cabins access to wifi vary depending on your device and the location in proximity to the central common areas. Some of the cabins have great wifi inside the cabin itself, while others might require you access the wifi from the deck.

Please, remember to scroll down to the very bottom of the page and click the "Read more about the neighborhood" link in the Neighborhood section for more info on our location. Nomad is a unique and awesome experience, but understanding our location will help you decide if it's right for you!

Guest access
You will have access to the pool, public lounge space with a well equipped public kitchen!

If you don't feel like cooking for yourself we have a bar+coffee/sandwich shop on site that is open 5 days a week. We also sell food basics on site, just in case you forget to bring something in your groceries.

We always have plenty of beer and soda at the bar, so to save space in the public fridge please don't bring cases of beer.

Also, there are 2 other great restaurants within walking distance for dinner.

Other things to note
Nomad Tree Lodge is located on a beautiful jungle hillside just steps away from amazing surf on Paunch beach. The entire lodge is built in the jungle canopy. Emerge yourself in nature without having to sacrifice creature comforts. Spend your days lounging in our pool with a drink in hand, or let us help plan an island adventure. We're a 15 minute cab ride away from Bocas Town, but still remote enough to avoid the noise of town and experience the raw and uncensored rainforest jungle lifestyle.

Location

Bocas del Toro Province, Panama

We are located just steps away from a shallow reef surf beach. Also, there are a few restaurants and bars within walking distance. Please understand world class surf beaches aren't always great places to swim. This beach has reef and rock on it for a perfect left and right reef break. There are swimming beaches located about a 15-20 minute walk from our lodge, but the beach closest to us is for surfing.

Nomad really is an awesome experience, but it's not for everyone! As mentioned, we are not located in Bocas Town, or even walking distance to town. We are about 6km from town. You can easily take a $3-5, per person, cab to town every single day if you want. Bocas Town itself is built on the bayside, so it's a great place for bars and restaurants, but not a great place to enjoy the ocean. That's why so many people choose to stay in our neighborhood.

If you can't afford a 15 minute cab ride, or wouldn't enjoy a 30 minute bike ride then don't book with us. If you think being 6km from town means we aren't worthy of 5 stars for location, then don't book with us! Please remember, you are choosing to stay with us, not the other way around. Please don't arrive here knowing our distance from town and knowing we are in the jungle behind a surf beach and not a swimming beach, and then say the location isn't great.

We understand it's not great for everyone, so if you wouldn't consider being outside of town, in the jungle, just behind a surf beach great, just don't stay with us!

My wife and I are always looking for an adventure and connecting with awesome people. We love the ocean and tropical weather, so we packed our stuff and dogs and headed to an island in Panama. Once the island we decided to build a jungle lodge for other adventurous souls like ourselves. I'm a web designer and developer by trade, so I work online sometimes. My wife helps me run Nomad Tree Lodge.
