Your health, safety, and comfort are of vital importance to us. 

Here at Morrillo Beach Eco Resort, where our entire team is 100% vaccinated, we understand how important it is to you, our guests, to have a clear understanding of how we are adapting our operations to protect your health, safety, and comfort, while traveling here in Panama. Our goal is to minimize direct contact as much as possible with strangers without taking away from experiencing the culture of the Panamanian people.  With this clearly provided information, and working together with you, we can ensure all our guests have a memorable experience while preventing the spread of COVID-19.

We have spent time preparing our resort and made the required adjustments to every process of our guests traveling experiences from the moment they have landed in Panama City to the moment of departure.  This includes the creation of a specially trained Health and Hygiene Safety committee at our resort, overseeing the necessary protocols are being followed by all our business partners like ground transportation, partner accommodations, guided services, and all food and beverage services.  

Tourism, adventure, exploration, and culture are fundamentals of life and economy and every tourism business is facing great economic hardships right now. If we all work together and take the necessary precautions, we can safely rebuild these vital industries, restore confidence and a sense of security to our guests for a sustainable future.
