First of all, we hope you are all in good health.

We want to inform you that Al Natural Resort opened anew in February 2021. Panama’s airspace is open to international flights and there is no more restrictions to domestic travels, Air Panama is running its daily flights between Panama City and Bocas del Toro.

All the sanitary measures, which apply to tourist accommodation, will be respected. Our bungalows, spaced apart from one another and open to the outside, are obviously ideal in this new situation. All our locals are open spaces, there is no closed room at Al Natural, this is perfect to insure the best ventilation and a safe and healthy environment. Fortunately, the islands of Bocas del Toro have so far been largely spared by the epidemic.

All the staff members at Al Natural Resort have been fully vaccinated.

We hope to see you soon.


In the very doubtful event that you should cancel your stay due to governmental measures taking in relation to the current health crisis here in Panama which would close its border, prohibit inter provincial travel or order the closing of the hotels, we will not apply our usual cancellation policy and we will reimburse 100% of the deposit received.

We are glad to inform you:

    ” This was possibly the best stay we have ever had anywhere, but Al Natural is not an air-conditioned five star hotel in a carefully controlled compound and therefore it might not suit everyone. The resort is run by real people, who have real personalities, on quite a remote island in Central America. “

    ” Not only the amazing chef was super friendly with us; all the stuff at Al Natural Resort was courteous and super nice. They will make you feel very welcome in this paradise, almost like home (or even better). ..You should visit Al Natural Resort if you are looking for a peaceful, naturalistic place full of good vibes! “
