Nayara Bocas del Toro (Isla Frangipani)

Nayara Bocas del Toro is an resort located on Isla Frangipani in Bocas del Toro, Panama, the Caribbean coast. The length and width of the island’s land area are around 300mX200m and 350x450m if infrastructure is included. The island is located about 11 km south of Bocas del Toro. It is scattered among countless islands around.

there is amazing vegetation there

The island lies in a protected calm region and a 5-star resort is set up there. And rooms can be rented of course. It blends nicely with the nature there and has overwater bungalows, terraces, its own garden, swimming pool, and fitness center. But the resort features its specific ,,tree houses”, some apartments resembling large trees with a unique design to blend with the environment.

plenty of overwater bungalows

Their garden has many colorful plants and fruits, and there are many coconut palms as well. It is jungle-alike there, and the island is almost wholly surrounded by mangroves. They also have an overwater sunbathing deck on the north side of the island. They also offer private boat and captain for many water-based activities around, including diving as well.

But, Nayara Bocas del Toro is committed to conservation and sustainability. Here is a quote from their site about environmental protection there:

“Sustainability is in our DNA. That’s why we built Nayara on stilts and completely off-grid to not harm the native mangroves and coral reefs. It’s also why our water, power, and wastewater systems are sustainably designed for our private mangrove island.”Dan Behm, Founder Nayara Bocas del Toro
In 2022, we partnered with the locally-based Caribbean Coral Restoration to install ten environmentally friendly fish habitats or artificial reef structures. We seeded them with genetically resilient coral for faster growth and recovery, and while it’s still early, we have already seen a tremendous amount of marine life return to the bay.
We conducted five different environmental studies to build Nayara Bocas del Toro without harming the native mangroves and coral reefs. That’s why we built the hotel on stilts and off-grid, and designed our own clean water and energy infrastructure.
We think local: we want our community to thrive. The majority of our team comes from the neighboring town of La Fortuna de San Carlos. We offer them free transportation, sustainable tourism education, and health services. Some of our additional local initiatives include free early education for our employees’ children, volunteer time, and financial support to Hogarcito de Ninos, a local orphanage, and support for local artists.
100% of our freshwater for drinking, bathing, and cooking is provided by harvested rainwater. We use large custom gutters that funnel rain water through downspouts and into large catchment basins that can store as much as 100,000-gallons. The water is then purified using an advanced ultraviolet purification method.
