Urraca Private Island was an amazing find and we are so glad we had the opportunity to stay here during our trip to Panama. Francine the host made the experience that much more enjoyable. If you're looking for some quiet time, somewhere to kick back and relax, this is the place. The rooms, dining area and deck are beautifully decorated...

My friends and I, (5 chicas in the Age of 27years :-) stayed in a lovely house on one of the Urraca private Island and it was more than awesome. First, the Island is hidden in some Mangrove trees where nobody would expect to see People :-) We got our own small boot and Francine gave us the Snorkeling Equipment...

We have a tour operator in Panama so it is our job to be in the lookout for special destinations. We are so glad we found Urraca. It was a very private experience with excellent meals and great service. It has all the elements you need to relax and explore the real Bocas del Toro. As Bocas town grows more...

I loved my visit to Urraca so much that I returned a second time! This private resort is secluded in a mangrove island near the Zapatillas ~ the perfect place to relax, away from all the noise and pollution found on developed islands. The hostess, Francine, is a superb French chef, and prepares decadent meals every night made from the...

Urraca Private Island is truly a gem in the Bocas del Toro region. Although the boat ride to the island seems long going out, once you arrive at the gorgeous little resort and Francine greets you at the dock (the owner and host during your stay), all of your worries and cares are gone! Everything from the vibrant pink huts...

This was, I knew, going to be an excellent vacation. However, my expectations were utterly surpassed. Francine is the sweetest person in the world and one of the best hosts I have ever seen in my life. You will certainly be in the lap of luxury when there and the food, oh the food... Wait and see and you will...

This little resort with only 4 overwater bungalows (8 persons total) is a fantastic place to stay away from stress and pollution. Far away from large overpopulated resort and alone on your mangrove island, Francine will be your host for your stay. Always happy and willing to show you how indiens Ngobes live around. You'll go fishing with them and...

We stayed for one day visiting the area of bocas del toro. Frances is a proud owner and treated us very nice. I loved the fact that we were able to quickly relax and get away. The shower was cold but expected as it was hot outside. The rooms were quaint and had great view of the starfish and other...
