Soaps, shampoo and conditioner are made on the Island by our friends at Punta Coco. These products are made from natural and organic ingredients sourced from local organic farms in the archipelago.

Our state of the art solar system provides all of our power while minimizing our carbon footprint in this ecologically sensitive environment.

The extensive rainwater catchment system ensures that we have all the water we need, we even have enough of rainwater to fill our beautiful swimming pool! The pool is open year round and provides a little oasis for our guests with hammocks and loungers for everyone. Have a drink, read your book or float for a while, life is cool by the pool.

Beautiful mature, colourful gardens surround the property attracting birds, butterflies, sloths and monkeys. Don’t forget your camera!


Breakfast is always special at TBH. Start the day with fresh brewed Panamanian coffee and a selection of teas while you gradually wake up with the sounds of the jungle around you. Breakfast is great time to share experiences [and usually lots of laughter] with other guests while enjoying our home made treats which include homemade granola,fresh fruit smoothies,baked goods and something different every day [please let us know if you have any special dietary concerns and we will do our best to accommodate you].

We are on hand to answer questions,help plan excursions,offer restaurant suggestions and make sure that you get the most out of your stay. Couples, friends, groups, families please contact us if you have any questions

We are fortunate to have some wonderful restaurants and a beach bar very close to TBH. If you don’t feel like eating out, our kitchen is available for guest use at lunch or dinner. The pool side BBQ is another option for the ultimate alfresco experience. A personal chef is also an option, please contact us for pricing.

Turtle Beach House B&B is located on Bluff Beach, Isla Colon, the local Bluff school is a 10 minute walk from us. There are 19 students ages 6-13 years old who attend the school where there is one teacher and 1 classroom. Resources are very limited, basic supplies like pencils and paper are a luxury for many of the children. The children are eager to learn and the lack of school supplies, not to mention water, decent toilets and playground equipment sometimes make this difficult.

With our neighbors Gary and Betsy at The Humming Bird B&B, we will be providing much needed supplies for the school.
