An Austin, TX couple falls in love at first sight with Shepherd Island in Bocas del Toro, Panama and builds small resort to share it with others. We never thought we would end up in paradise as multi tasking fruit farmers mainly of cacao (chocolate). We take pride in helping others to see and enjoy the beauty surrounding us. This place has allowed us to live our dream. Together, we swim with the fish, reap fruit harvests, welcome guests, take jungle hikes, socialize with friends, and pursue our hobbies. I have been allowed to renew my interest in art and painting while Jack has new farming interests. We both have become knowledgeable about the health benefits of living here specifically, the food we eat. Cacao is the #1 anti oxidant known to man while coconut water has been used to replace human plasma. We learn something new everyday and have a wonderful, simple, and beautiful life.
