El Otro Lado: Private Retreat
El Otro Lado is a private retreat on Panama’s Caribbean Coast located within Portobelo National Park, just across the bay from the historic town of Portobelo, Panama.
LANDED books El Otro Lado for private groups and families on an exclusive basis–just for you, with no other guests. We know the staff, the owners, and the spirit of the place. We’ve made great memories here, and can help you create your own.
LANDED also arranges privately guided fishing excursions (artisanal or sport fishing), cultural performances (dance performances, meetings with artisans), wildlife viewing excursions (monkeys, sloths, toucans), SCUBA diving, snorkeling day trips, and private catamaran sailing charters (for an afternoon or multiple days).
On property, you can kayak or pedal boat, hike, swim, and enjoy the Caribbean sun. The resort has a world-class collection of rare Latin American music, which plays softly in the restaurant.
El Otro Lado is a collection of four villas and three suites. Each is unique, but all are furnished with air conditioning, security box, hair dryer, and Wi-Fi. Some higher category units add private patios, kitchens, and living rooms.
About 8,600 square feet, Casa Grande includes two floors with three suites.
The ground floor includes a living room, bar, and outdoor dining.
The three suites are located on the second floor, each with its own identity surrounded by terraces and views of the jungle and bay.
Among El Otro Lado amenities are an outdoor swimming pool, restaurant, bar, yoga deck, gardens, sea kayaks, and paddle boats for the freshwater reservoir.
El Otro Lado is an ideal starting point for activities ranging from forest adventures to cultural excursions.
Guests can enjoy rainforest hikes, river kayaking, diving, sea fishing, world-class birdwatching and visiting nearby Caribbean beaches.
Visitors can also enjoy the charming town of Portobelo, Panama — a UNESCO world heritage site. Visitors can sample local food, visit art galleries and observe the traditional Congo dance.
