El Otro Lado, Private Retreat

Portobelo Bay, Panama

El Otro Lado, Private Retreat

Watch local artists carve sculptures and furniture in an on-site workshop at El Otro Lado. This playful, private jungle retreat simply inspires creative adventure, from its inventive Caribbean-fusion fare to the range of activities around the protected bay. You can dive underwater wrecks, cruise the river in a dugout canoe, join a painting workshop, explore UNESCO-designated fortifications, or attend a traditional Congo dance. The four houses and three Casa Grande rooms are equally imaginative, adorned with fun folk art and molas. Enjoy a massage en suite or in the spa’s treatment room.

Hotel Tip

Besides the hotel’s gallery, the nearby Casa de La Cultura Congo supports a host of local artists and craftspeople. Pack an extra bag for all your finds.
