Floating Homes In Panama

When I first considered retiring to Panama I thought I’d like to build a houseboat/shantyboat and spend my so-called “Golden Years” in the Bocas del Toro archipelago on the Caribbean side of the country. It’s an island-studded, enchanted place. For a lot of reasons I’m not going to get into here I ended up living nearly 3,000 feet above sea level on the Pacific side, instead. If you’d like to see what that’s like check out my other blog: One More Good Adventure. Start at the June 2010 entries and work your way forwards.

While my original plan hasn’t been completely abandoned it is definitely on hold, but every month I look forward to the newest edition of the Bocas Breeze for all kinds of great articles about what’s going on over on the other side of the continental divide.

In the latest edition I saw this ad:

Naturally I couldn’t resist finding out more. These are a LONG way from being shantyboats but they’re certainly cool.

This is their top-of-the-line model. It’s 20′ wide X 40′ long, 3 levels, 2 bed/2bath:

The smallest is 16X20,-1 studio style bedroom, Living room, Kitchen

They’re building a floating restaurant and other facilities only minutes away from Bocas Town by boat.

If you’re interested in a cool concept in a little piece of paradise you really need to check it out.

Oh, yeah, Bocas del Toro is BELOW the hurricane belt to that’s something you don’t have to worry about.
