El Otro Lado Private Retreat - Bahia Portobelo, Panama

“Con Sentimiento” in Spanish means “with feeling” and when we put the word together it means “pampering”. Either way you want to interpret it, the word will reflect without a doubt, the way you will feel during one of our massages in the deck next to the waterfall of our private water reserve or in your private suite.

Get your workout mode on and be ready to sweat with our local fitness coaches. Enjoy a nice cardio session around the property, followed by functional training out in nature.

Discover the rainforest in a wide variety of different habitats around Portobelo and witness the incredible biodiversity that makes this such a unique location!.

While hiking in the areas around the village can allow us the chance to see monkeys, sloths and toucans, exploring a bit farther into the mountains gives us the chance to encounter more exotic species like the beautiful poison-dart frogs, and excellent places for birdwatching.
