Everybody dreams of owning a private island. It's time to make that dream a reality. What would you do with your own tropical island? An exclusive eco-retreat? Set up a bar on the water? Or just use it whenever you need to escape from the world?
Private islands big enough for an eco-retreat are hard to come by. Jinja Island is in a perfect location in a stable and economically successful region of the world.
Panama uses US dollars, it’s relatively easy to set up a company and most visitors enjoy six months visa-free entry on arrival.
Boasting a stable economy, a currency pegged to the US dollar, the highest GDP per capita of any country in Latin America, jungles, volcanos, exotic wildlife and hundreds of miles of unspoiled beaches on two different oceans, tourism in Panama is taking off in a big way.
Lonely Planet lists Bocas Del Toro as Panama’s number one attraction for backpackers and eco-tourists.. An archipelago of hundreds of lush green islands, clear tropical waters and white-sand beaches make Bocas Del Toro the hidden gem of the Caribbean.
On a more practical note, Bocas has an international airport with several flights a day to Panama City and Costa Rica, as well as supermarkets and hardware stores, timber yards and solar panel distributors – everything needed to set up Jinja Island as Central America’s premier eco-retreat.
Capital required: EUR 100,000
Given its location, size and natural wonders, Jinja Island is brimming with investment opportunities. With enough cabañas, solar panels and rainwater collection tanks, an eco-resort would easily cope with up to 20 guests at a time, all of whom could enjoy high-quality broadband and 24-hour access to Bocas Town.
