The Genesis of our Mission

Take an Adventure Trip with a Purpose. Given the shared history of Panama and the United States, it is not surprising that Panama remains one of the most popular destinations for North American travelers to Central America. Historically, Panama City, its historical areas and the Canal Zone have been the primary attractions for travelers. However, with the turnover of the Canal and the withdrawal of the United States military on December 31, 1999, a truly independent Panama has become a premier destination for vacationers. Panama's history, rich cultural heritage, modern infrastructure, excellent health conditions, favorable climate and unsurpassed natural beauty make Panama a favorite destination for even the most experienced traveler.

Against this background, developers seeking to establish facilities for travelers near Red Frog Beach on Isla Bastimentos, came to realize that they had an obligation to the people throughout the province of Bocas del Toro to ensure that this history, heritage, natural environment and stunning beauty of Panama is maintained and preserved. To this end, the Red Frog Foundation was established on September 21, 2006.

The Board of Trustees of the Red Frog Foundation are committed to help make Bocas del Toro a better place for those that live and visit there.
