Sacred Earth Travel - Sustainable Nature and Adventure Travel

Eco-Lodges in Panama

Eco-Lodges in Panama and Cost Rica are a little different than in Peru or Ecuador. They usually don't have set programs, but are simplymore or less rustic lodges in remote areas that give access to nature trails, which can be explored independently or with a guide. Some offer birdwatching or general nature observation hikes, other have canoes or horses for rent. Those located near the beach usually offer snorkeling trips.

Burbayar is on the summit of the San Blas Cordillera, 22 km from the Atlantic and 14.5 km from the Interamerican Highway to the south. Though just two and a half hours away from Panama City, we are submerged in a pristine tropical rainforest area, which is part of a biological corridor linked to the Nargana Natural Reserve, itself connected to the Chagres National Park to the west and to the east with the Darien National Park. In Burbayar we are part of the Mesoamerican Biological Corridor (MBC**). The MBC goes from the south of Mexico to Panama, traversing Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua and Costa Rica. The general objective of the MBC is to keep the biological connection of the entire zone in order to avoid forest fragmentation and loss of habitats, flora, fauna and cultures, as well as to assure its sustainable use.

Wekso Lodge, Panama

Wekso Eco-Lodge

La Amistad Biosphere Reserve has been threatened in recent years due to encroaching development, deforestation and destructive land use. The Wekso Eco-lodge generates income for approximately 20 Naso community families, providing them with ecologically friendly employment, and helps them maintain their cultural values. Wekso also generates resources for the protection of the natural resources of La Amistad, and has generated a higher level of awareness among the Naso community members, in respect to protecting the ecosystems as well as the plants and animals within them. The Naso Indians have retained their own language, and due to expressed concerns of the loss of tribal traditions from older members, the community has taken steps to revitalize their fading traditions. An example of this is the Shaman's Apprentice Program, which encourages indigenous people to preserve the knowledge of traditional medicine and transfer it to younger generations. Handicrafts are also made by local community members. The lodge has bungalow style cabins with capacity for up to 4 people per cabin, outside bathrooms, meals and optional tours.
