We would be taking the shuttle from San Jose. How would we get to the island? How long is the boat ride? How large is the boat? Can we get to and from the island to go to other places? Are all the rooms over the water? Do you have a pool?
When you arrived at Bocas del Toro Island with the shuttle, You have to get water taxi from Bocas to Urraca, you have to comfirm approximative hour you will be at Bocas and the water taxi will waiting for you at the restaurant Pirata. The boat ride is 30 minutes. The boat is 28 feet. We offer many excursions. All bungalow are over the water. We don't have concret pool, we have natural pool all over the island

Hi Troy, Thanks for considering Urraca Private Island Eco-Lodge, you really found a place that is privileged to be located in one of the most exclusive area of ​​Bocas del Toro. We can accommodate 14 adults and as you are a family of 3 generations, I guess you have children that could sleep in the same bungalow as parents, we can add single beds in order to accommodate your group of 18. We have 3 bungalows with 1 Queen bed (6 adults) 1 bungalow with 1 King bed (or 2 3/4 beds) (2 adults) 1 family bungalow with 2 Queen beds, 2 single beds (6 adults) If you will like to have more informations or details, I can send you pictures but not her. I look forward hearing from you soon and I hope to have the opportunity to meet you (people from my country) and make you discover this part of paradise of Panama and also make you see why Panama has been named number one world-wide as the best country in respect of the happiness of the people who live Y. Sometimes it is unspeakable, just look at it carefully, maybe you will find the appropriate term. Many bows!
