The Resort property borders the Bastimentos National Marine Park, on an island, off of an island, in Panama’s ageless Caribbean. It only seems fitting that the Red Frog Beach Resort has a design that compliments the surrounding emerald rainforest and history going back to Columbus.
Instead of rainforest demolition for a commercialized check-in desk, the lobby was designed by Mother Nature. We followed nature’s lead to nestle the villa neighborhood on the hillside over former farmland (rather than primary rainforest growth), providing easy beach access and spectacular rainforest and Caribbean views.
Staying in one of the private island villas will give you the real at-home feel while being amid the world’s most breathtaking and authentic island destinations.Take just a 5-10 minute walk to Red Frog Beach, or find yourself on one of the other breathtaking beaches on the island.
