This location provides tranquility and the opportunity to listen to the songs of many local birds, frogs and other island creatures. Located a short 10 minute boat ride directly across from Bocas Town lies the island of Solarte, known for its lush garden atmosphere and views. The Inn sits on a nicely landscaped titled lot and has eight large guest rooms, all with private baths. The Inn as it was known, was built by an American contractor to American standards with beautiful native woods. The Inn also has a spacious and well-appointed dining room with bar that seats 20, a meeting area/game room that accommodates up to 26 people, plus a completely equipped kitchen and office. Internet and TV are available. This building was environmentally designed using water flush composting sanitation systems. A water collection system has the capacity to collect 6300 gallons. There is dock access on a cart path approximately 200 meters from the building. The property is located within walking distance to a small indigenous Ngobe community, providing an opportunity for cultural interaction and boat taxi service to and from Bocas Town and all beaches and tourist attractions.

Currently  the building needs solar power as the underwater electric was destroyed by an anchoring sailboat. The owner has lowered the price to allow the new owner to install a new “Green” solar system warrantied to them. The owner has had a solar system designed for the building and is estimated at $30,000.

Owners are selling because they have other properties to manage. This is a great opportunity to live the island dream and build a business that can be profitable and enjoyable. This building and location is perfectly suited for such activities as a yoga retreat, bird watchers, and environmental groups.  Currently three miles of nature trails are being maintained and would allow this building to take advantage of new opportunities for lodging these kind of bird watching and jungle tours.
