It begins and ends with the spectacular views. You leave with hundreds of photos and videos. Choose Punta Caracol to truly get away from it all and enjoy the true serenity that is rare to find these days. Our hosts, and those who provide various services, are exemplary. The Aqua Lodge prides itself in hiring local citizens and members of the indigenous community—authentica Panama! Snorkelling reveals another underwater world and the kayaking expands the senses. The food has a local flair and comes in generous portions. Go, if you want to get off the grid and cleanse your mind and soul!

Punta Caracol is a little slice of heaven. The cabins are very quaint and comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the views are spectacular. Staying over the water was like being on top of an aquarium. If you love nature and sea life, this is a must see! We loved every minute!

Beautiful location, a piece of paradise. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The only down is there should be more boat ride to the city since the last one is 3 pm and a taxi boat to come back is quite expensive for big family, approx: 50/60 dollars.
