Isla Solarte is the ideal location for a resort community in Bocas, as it has the advantage of proximity to town, along with the luxury and security of being removed from the general population. There are white sand beaches along the west side of the development area, which can be enlarged and improved. Isla Solarte's famous Hospital Point, popular for snorkeling and diving, is conveniently located at the northern tip of Isla Solarte, approximately one short mile from Bocas Town. Lush rain-forests cover much of the island, providing a home for tropical birds, sloths, and iguanas. Beautiful coral reefs surround most of the waters of the development, making it ideal for swimming, fishing, snorkeling, and diving. The inland terrain of the island is elevated; the advantages being lovely breezes and beautiful vistas. The island's location, snuggled on the west side of Isla Bastimentos, offers protection from tempests. There are several ideal locations for marinas, hotels, and other commercial zones.
For individuals seeking to build a retirement or vacation home, there are a wide variety of lots available that would be perfect. Basic paths and infrastructure are in place, and currently being improved. We can recommend builders who will help you create your dream home, and at a reasonable cost. Homes can be built to be low maintenance, "green", and energy efficient.
There is electrical service available on the "Sunset Beach" (West) side of the island. We anticipate that service will expand to the rest of the island in the future. There are many lovely homes already constructed on the island, many of them "off the grid", that is, self-sustaining with the use of solar panels, back up generators, grey water systems, composting toilets, and catchment systems for water.
Let us help you arrange a vacation to beautiful Bocas del Toro, and take you on a tour of the properties so you can personally select the location for your dream home!
