1.5 miles from the center of Bocas Town and you are in Isla Colons’ hills and rainforest…this is where you’ll find Casa En La Colina. This 2 bed, 1.5 bath, 1100 sq ft Japanese inspired home is the highest house on Isla Colon. Situated on approximately 1/2 acre of TITLED land, the house features native hardwoods throughout. Nispero framing, Almendro floors, Cana Fistula siding and Tobaco windows, stairs and doors… exquisite and rare wood.
The house features 3 balconies overlooking a rainforest ravine spilling down to water views of Bahia Almirante and on the horizon, the mountains of the Cordilla Central with a prominent view of Volcan Baru, the highest mountain in Panama. The grounds are packed with wildlife, birds and monkeys. Casa En La Colina is situated in a small community of beautiful homes offering a quiet, remote jungle experience just outside of town. The breezes are cooler up here and the rain forest and wildlife are ever present…isn’t this what you came to Bocas for?
The front entry features a deck overlooking jungle plains leading to Bluff beach with the house opening to an inviting sitting area and kitchen. There is an upstairs bedroom as well as a downstairs bedroom, ensuite bath and W/D hookup, all have decks. There is also an outside storage area that could be converted to a care-taker’s room.

The house has two 1250 gallon tanks. A new septic tank and electric service was installed in 2017 as well as a fresh coat of stain. Casa En La Colina has been lovingly maintained and at this price, a true Bocas find.
