Giving Back


Bambuda & Pack For a Purpose

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination.

With this initiative, we are looking to help Floating Doctors by providing them with the supplies they need to better serve the communities in which our hotels are located.

If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and bring supplies to Floating Doctors, you’ll make a priceless impact on the lives of our local children and families.

Below you can select your destination to find more information about the project and a list of the supplies you can bring.

About Floating Doctors

Floating Doctors travels to remote communities with poor access to care to provide primary care and emergency care services, dental care, advanced patient care coordination and advocacy, education and training, and community development.

Since setting sail in 2010, Floating Doctors has traveled over 26,000 miles to bring care to more than 60,000 patients and counting!

What sets Floating Doctors apart from traditional medical missions is their commitment to providing ongoing care to the communities they serve.

They have a permanent presence in the region of Bocas del Toro and deploy nearly every week throughout the year and treat anywhere from 30 to 200 patients per day.

Floating Doctors is attempting to always maintain a well-stocked pharmacy with portable diagnostic supplies like ultrasound, ECG, and urinalysis.  Maternal and child health are major priorities for them.

Many of their patients now attend their clinics not only when they are ill, but even when they are well to get a health check-up for themselves and their children and to get deworming tablets, vitamins, soap, or new toothbrushes to help protect themselves and their families.

What do they need?
