Portobelo Tours is proud to work with our good friends at Tesoro Verde. Over the last 7 years, Heather and Jim have worked hard to tame their large plot of land in the Jungle, planting gardens, making walkways, and creating a beautiful and large space that is perfect for activities for groups of all sizes! Being completely on private land surrounded by old-growth rainforest guarantees that you will have a calm but incredibly close view of the jungle and its wildlife. Tesoro Verde also boasts one of the best views of the sea and islands on Costa Arriba- one of the advantages of living on coastal mountains!
Their property is the location for a number of our activities, including our half day jungle hike, our treasure hunt, and the jungle pizza parties. The dense jungle surrounding it give them amazing views of wildlife- probably the easiest place in the area to see sloths, four species of monkey, olingos, coati mundis, and everything else under the Panamanian sun. They have even planted Panama’s first hedge maze- over 10,000 hibiscus shrubs make up a huge labyrinth in the shape of Panama!
About once a month, Tesoro Verde is the site of the famous Full Moon Pizza Party! This affordable and fun event gives everyone a chance not only to make their own wood-fired pizza in the middle of the rainforest, but also to get a taste of the ambiance and views of this treasure of Panama.
Recently, they have opened up two “Bamboo Bothies“. They are situated above the main house with beautiful views of the green forest below and the blue Caribbean beyond. The first one is now complete and is equipped with it’s own solar power generation system which provides led lighting and also power for a 110v inverter so you can charge your smart phones, watch a movie on your tablet etc. The bothies are rustic, but very cool and comfortable, complete with mosquito nets and bamboo walls that can be stood up to allow the breeze to enter.
Their large maintained space also makes it the perfect destinations for families, parties, corporate events, or other large groups. They have many years experience organizing large events. Any event includes access to the full grounds, including the panamaze! Contact us with any questions!
