Investing in The Panama Eco Lodge Vacation You Will Love

A lot of people see a vacation as an expense. But we believe it is an investment. When you schedule a beautiful, sustainable, and memorable experience, it does more than make you feel good. It connects you with each member in your party. It lets you unplug and let go of your everyday. You try new things and relax. The investment you make today should be paid back in treasured memories that last a lifetime.

Experience Cost Per Minute Graph

We pursue and believe in treating your vacation as a precious investment. In trying to compare different breaks from your everyday, we looked at four experiences – one day trip to a Disney theme park, a day at Tranquilo Bay, a quick pop into a coffee shop, and a special occasion meal at Canlis. While all of them allow you to unplug, they each come with their own set of benefits and compromises as well as their own cost.

Disney Park Experience Cost Per Minute Per Person Wheel

Disney theme parks are the best value for your money at $0.14 per minute per person. This calculation is based upon the park entrance fee for the number of minutes the park is open. It does not include any meals, beverages, or special perks.

Tranquilo Bay Experience Cost Per Minute Per Person Wheel

Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge is an exceptional value at $0.24 per minute per adult. Children would be $.12 per minute each. This calculation is based upon the high season rate including taxes for 18 hours a day, assuming people sleep about eight hours. The price includes meals, beverages, guided activities onsite, use of the private conservation reserve and equipment among all of the other things included in the daily stay rate.

Coffee Shop Experience Cost Per Minute Per Person Wheel

Coffee shop coffee is a good value at somewhere around $.33 a minute per person assuming one purchases a $5.00 beverage and spends about 15 minutes inside the coffee shop.

Canlis Dinner Experience Cost Per Minute Per Person Wheel

A special occasion meal at Canlis is a great value at $1.10 per minute per person. This calculation is based upon the price fixe menu at $165 per person with dinner service covering about 2 1/2 hours. This does not include any beverages. I can’t wait until I am able to make it to Canlis to celebrate something!

As you can see, there are a number of investments we can all make in ourselves or our families. These vary from something we can stop and pick up every day (coffee shop coffee) to a vacation or meal we must plan on and reserve in advance.
