Answers...

Where is Isla Solarte?
Isla Solarte is an island in the Bocas del Toro archipelago and it is approximately 3 miles long and less than a half mile across at its widest point. The waters surrounding it are always calm due to its position next to Bastimentos (its much larger neighboring island) which fully protects it from the open Caribbean. It sits about 9 miles off the coast of Panama and is part of an archipelago of over 100 islands that begin at the border with Costa Rica and hug the Panamanian caribbean coast for miles. While the surrounding area as a whole is virtually undeveloped, Bocas del Toro, the capital city of the province, sits a mile away on the neighboring island of Colon (named for Christopher Columbus, who visited there in 1502).

What is the weather like on Isla Solarte? Do I have to worry about tropical storms or hurricanes
The climate of Isla Solarte is very similar to the Hawaiian Islands. The average air temperature is in the low 80s, water temperature is in the low 80s, light breezes flow from the northeast and northwest from 5 to 15 knots and there is no history of tropical storms or hurricanes during the last 140 years. The climate is consistent throughout the year with many sunny days. Rainfall is approximately 100 inches per year and often occurs at night with short showers during the day, similar to Hawaii. The vegetation on Isla Solarte is lush and green all year long. 

What kind of tropical property is available on Isla Solarte?
Isla Solarte rises over one hundred feet out of the ocean with a variety of hilltops, ridges, and gentle slopes that provide views of a half dozen neighboring islands as well as the Panamanian coastline. The following types of property are available: homes built on stilts out over the water, waterfront lots with immediate access to the water and available docks, view lots back from the water with beautiful view of the water, ridge lots with panoramic views of the Caribbean (ranging from 75 to 100 feet above sea level), and lovely green privacy lots with beautiful views of the rain forest. None of the lots are more than a few minutes walk from the water.

The island has a beautiful rain forest where every shade of green is represented. The hundreds of varieties of trees create a forty foot canopy that spreads filtered sunlight over the ferns and countless species of plants that cover its forest floor. As you walk the island, the only sounds you hear come from the many birds that inhabit it. It is believed that over 300 species of birds live on these islands, and no dangerous critters of any kind.

What kind of transport is available to/from Isla Solarte? What are the nearest airports/seaports?
The nearest airport is on the neighboring island of Isla Colon, in Bocas del Toro, the capitol city. Water taxis make regular trips back and forth between Solarte and Bocas Del Toro, a 5-10 minute boat ride.

Do I have to speak Spanish to buy property on Isla Solarte?
No! One of the benefits of buying property on Isla Solarte is that you will have the ease of dealing with English-speaking management with a presence both in Panama and in the United States.

What kind of community is planned for Isla Solarte? 
Isla Solarte is a master planned community; this means the layout of the entire community has been well thought-out. We are developing the island with environmental sensitivity on a community-wide scale, including a unique set of cart paths designed to make all parts of the island accessible with little negative impact to its beauty (no other vehicles will be run on Isla Solarte). You will be surrounded by like-minded people who value their time on this beautiful island as much as you do.

What other islands and/or major cities are close by?
Bocas del Toro, the capital city of the province is about ten minutes away, on the neighboring island of Colon. Panama City is a short 50 minute airplane flight away. There are many beautiful islands in the area, withing short boat rides away for fantastic snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing.
