El Otro Lado

Bright colors, local art, and whimsical design in Portobelo.


A private retreat tucked in Portobelo Bay and inside the Portobelo National Park, El Otro Lado fuses design, culture, nature, and luxury to provide guests with the perfect place to disconnect and relax. The five exclusive houses feature exceptional views of both vegetation and ocean and integrate an eclectic tropical design of traditional woodwork with spiritual wellness reflected in the uses of color, light, and placement.
