Guest Testimonial

I would just like to add that the help / service we received from Melissa Hookway was oustanding. It was very personal and I was made to felt like a valued client.

- AC, Cheshire

This simple but unique lodge of Punta Caracol was created as an ecolodge in a totally virgin and natural environment. The idea is to offer guests a pure and intimate experience with nature in a place of singular beauty where they can relax in comfort. Built over the Caribbean Sea, along a mile long coral reefed coast, Punta Caracol is constructed using the traditional methods of the Archipelago: each handsomely crafted cabin is built upon stilts which support a wooden frame over the water and covered by a palm leaf roof - an unforgettable habitat congruent with the native communities of the region - rustic but in a beautiful setting. Natural building materials such as different kinds of native woods and plants, clays, leafs, bamboo, wild cane and others were used in its construction. The hotel is a 15 minute boat transfer from the airport on Colon Island.

The 5 Punta Caracol Suites consist of two stories that together provide 50 square metres of interior surface and 25 square metre terraces, in addition to a platform at the water's surface with stairs to access the green, crystal clear waters surrounding it. The king size bed is located in the upper room, from where you can enjoy an incredible view of the bay through an ingenious window through the palm roof.
