Basic facts about the ojos del drago beachfront home
It is hardly believable how beautiful the Ojos del Drago property is. Seemingly a set from ‘The Blue Lagoon’ movie, every inch of this masterpiece is private, and serene.

Located along a private stretch of road on the North coast of Isla Colon, Bocas del Toro, this 5 hectare property forms a gentle valley, with higher elevation on it’s East and West borders. This unique topography gives the property an extra feeling of exclusiveness, as does the thick layer of jungle separating the building sites from the road behind.
A 600 meter drive way has been carved through the property’s jungle, and layered with caliche to prevent erosion. The driveway leads straight to the little wooden home, and there is a caliche enforced turn around.
The wooden home is build on top of one of the property’s 3 hills. Set back from the sea breeze, and nestled in a garden, the home has incredible views of the open ocean, and of course bird island. On a higher hill to the East, there is a covered yoga platform, the roof of which collects rain in 3 large tanks, which provide the wooden home with gravity fed water.
There is a canvas wall tent on stilts West of the wooden home, and beyond that a third hill top, offering a phenomenal opportunity to build the home of your dreams. Each of the hill tops absorb gorgeous Northern breezes and incredible ocean energy.
A hibiscus aligned path leads from the wooden home to the property’s oceanfront West boundary, where a concrete stair case offers easy access to a golden sand beach. The beach is inaccessible to any one, other than the one neighbor on the west side.
