Important Things to Know about Bambuda Lodge before booking!
–We accept credit card for a 3% fee and we also accept cash in USD. There is an ATM in Bocas Town at the Banco Nacional, if you need to get cash before coming to the island.

We have a 72 Hour cancellation policy here any booking cancelled after this time period will be charged for their full reservation

-We have a full on-site restaurant and bar, with a variety of options for every budget. We do not have an open kitchen for guest use.

-Bambuda Lodge has a mix of private rooms and dorms and our guests like getting to know each other and hang out in the many common areas. However it is also easy to find your own corner to read a book or surf the internet in peace. A highlight for many guests is the communal dinner where everyone eats at the banquet table together at 7:00p.

–We do not accept children under the age of 16.

-During the day and evening we like to play music depending on atmosphere. The rooms are located away from the music which allows people who want to have a few drinks and listen to music to be able to do this without disturbing the guests who would like to sleep.

-Going to and from Bocas Town is a 5 minute water taxi which can be called for you day or night. Prices are $3-$5 pp in the day and $5 at night. From town ask any boat driver to go to Bambuda Lodge on Solarte and they will take you directly to us. Many beaches are less than $5 away, you can even walk to one!

-Bambuda Lodge is off-grid, meaning our electricity comes from the sun and our water is caught and filtered rain-water. With this state-of-the-art technology we are all able to live in comfort; every bed has its own fan and showers are hot. Try to be mindful of water usage and power consumption, toilet paper goes in the garbage bin not down the toilet.

-We have a full tour office and we can arrange countless activities for you around the islands that will keep you busy for weeks. Onward travel to somewhere in Panama or Costa Rica can be arranged for you easily. Within Bambuda’s 14-acre property there are hiking trails through the jungle, coral reef snorkeling directly in front, and countless plants, fruits and animals living all around us.

The activities around the archipelago will keep you entertained for as much time as you have available!
