Adventure With Kids in Morrillo, Panama.
Being located in the remote jungles of Panama it takes a special type of traveler who finds out about us and is willing to go the extra mile to get here but it takes exceptional parents that understand how impactful an experience in a place like this is for their children. When we were dreaming about what our Eco Resort was to become we knew we could, and had to, create a unique place for adventure, culture, and nature lovers of all kinds but especially for families with kids. For Ryan and I, who always knew we didn't want to have children of our own, you might think that ironic. But we all know that to conserve and protect beautiful places in nature, we have to share it with each other and especially the next generation.
"Teach them well and let them lead the way." Houston, Masser, Creed
Every time we left our snowy, cold home up in the mountains of Colorado at 10,000 ft (3,000 m) and arrived at our land in Panama, we would sit on the beach looking up at the trees, the monkeys, iguanas, and the dreams that lingered there. We had so much fun talking about what this magical space would become and now, 15 years later, we've been here more than 5 years.
We built it, they've been coming and man, it is a lot of fun hanging out with kids that thrive in nature and love adventure. We have made a lot of great friends because of this magical place and many of them have returned for more so now, we get to watch these kids grow up too. Surfing, snorkeling, waterfall jumping, hiking, and treasure hunting are just some of the fun adventures we do together. Just when you thought we had it all, we now have our adventure book too.
Remember Carsyn - our niece who was here just a few months ago? She wrote our kids adventure book and it's awesome. We are very proud of her creation and really excited to share this with the kids that come to adventure with us and thought you would love to see it too. It's only available online for you to view for a week so after that, you'll have to check it out in person.
You don't have to be a kid or even have kids to love it here but if you do, or know a family that would love this place, please let them know about us. We would love to host them and you here for great adventures with us in the jungles of Panama!!
