Casa and Casita del Mar are Eco over the water villas built on the Caribbean sea in Dolphin Bay in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro, Panama. The villas are situated on a mile long coral reef in a remote location on the island of Cristobal. 

The goal is to offer guests an intimate experience with nature where you can relax in comfort while at the same time, minimizing the impact on the environment through off grid living. 

The villas are situated on lush acres of private jungle, Casa del Mar features a thatched tree house to enjoy the birds and wildlife. Both homes have direct access to miles of great hiking trail with orchards, jungle treks and hilltop lookouts over the bay.
