We are a European couple fell in love with this country ( especially in the Caribbean) more than 10 years ago. Life is here like in a hidden paradise, really close to the nature. No words can tell you how it feels like, you should try it! We wanted to share this unique experience also with others so we decided to settle down here in Cocles and built 2 apartments for rent. We gave the name after our 4 year old daughter: Lina. You can feel the nature really close to you, its an incredible feeling, but dont be afraid of the animals, normally they are afraid of human beings so they dont come close to you, you have to be patient and silent to be able to watch them . even the spiders or other insects :)
we have a sloth living with us on the tree next to our house, dozens of humming birds around, an iguana couple and a friendly agouti are visiting us frequently, not to mention all the birds flying around the house
We raise organic banana, pineapple and coconut in the garden, if you arrive in the right period we invite you taste them...
