We offer a variety of accommodations, making our small resort unique amongst Bocas del Toro hotels.
Popa Paradise offers nine individual casitas, five attached lodge rooms, two Junior Suites and one Master Suite, all with ocean views.
The casitas are free-standing, individual suites with King, Queen, or two twin size beds and a pull-out twin bed. All offer full bathrooms with hot water, air conditioning, satellite SKY television, DVD player, beautiful hardwood furniture and large shaded porches for enjoying the ocean view and breezes.
The Junior Suites are on the bottom floor of our beautiful house on the point. These rooms are larger and have small kitchenettes. There is a king bed with pull-out twin bed and a futon. They also have wrap around porches with views of the sea on two sides.
The Master Suite is located on the top floor of the house on the point. It has one main bedroom, a second small bedroom for children or one adult, a living room, two bathrooms and a full kitchen. There is a beautiful wrap-around balcony that looks out over the ocean on three sides.
The Lodge Rooms are our more economical accommodations. These rooms face the sea and are just a short walk to the beach. They have a table with chairs and a bench outside the room. All Lodge Rooms have a private bathroom, air conditioning and ceiling fan. There is no television in these rooms, however there is a big screen TV in the Clubhouse for our guests.
Popa has two white sand beaches. Our main beach is 1,100 feet of golden white sand and a small tree-topped island at the northern end. The little island can be reached by a dock and stairs. There is a small ranchito on the island with a stunning view.
Our property is approximately twenty-five acres of grassy rolling low hills interspersed with a mixture of giant mature hardwood trees and various types of palm trees. This provides a picturesque blend of shade and ocean views from all parts of the property. Further along the shore is another small sandy beach with access to a third long, sandy beach beyond.
Off shore about 400 yards is a coral reef, just a few feet below the surface at low tide. This barrier creates the calm waters on our beaches and makes swimming a safe activity for all our guests. The reef is living coral that provides habitat for dozens of marine species, including tropical fish, docile nurse sharks and eagle rays. The clear waters are perfect for snorkeling. Swim, kayak, snorkel or have one of our guides assist you when exploring this splendid underwater garden.
At the rear of our property is majestic primary rainforest that blankets the majority of Isla Popa with its huge hardwood trees towering into the forest canopy. Our southern border is defined by a stream that runs into the ocean. There are an abundant series of pathways to explore the property and a trail that leads into the jungle.
