We are constantly asked if there are any of those amazing overwater bungalow resorts in the Caribbean, and many people are disappointed to learn that there are only a few options that come close to what you would find in the South Pacific and the Maldives.
With this said, there are some good options for budget seekers off of the Caribbean coast of Panama. Most of these hotels, lodges, and resorts tend to focus more on nature and being as eco-friendly as possible than on luxuries, so they're certainly not for everyone. Those who do travel to these overwater bungalows have it in mind that they are there to be outside in nature as much as time and the weather allows. So if you've been searching for a tropical escape with snorkeling, tours, and monkeys, then you'll want to explore the overwater accommodations, below.
Those looking for “honeymoon-style” overwater bungalows have reason to celebrate now. The luxury Viceroy hotels chain is currently constructing an amazing resort with 42 overwater bungalows and 144 other rooms on a huge property in Bocas del Toro. THIS will finally be the resort most of us were waiting for.
