Thousands of square meters of shallow Coral Reef surround the properties, and deep water reefs further off-shore , both home to more than 700 recorded species of marine life. Snorkeling and diving tours will be accessible to guests who visit the grounds. Days will be full of nature and education, and celebratory meals will be enjoyed on the sunset patio.

BEHIND THE SCENES CONSERVATION GOALS
700 species of fish have been identified in the Golfo de Chiriqui, and the protected waters are used for breeding and birthing by the Humpback Whales. We want to raise awareness about certain methods of fishing that need to be stopped, and how people can do their part to conciously reject them. As part of our misson we are currently looking for a project manager and advisor for a Coral Restoration Facility.
