Exchange Vows in a Unique Island Paradise

BOCAS DEL TORO, Panama, Aug. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Say "I do," in an unspoiled island paradise, where miles of lush rainforest merge into stunning seascape. Located on beautiful Isla Bastimentos off the scenic northern coast of Panama, newly completed Red Frog Beach Island Resort offers simply beautiful, personalized weddings in a secluded seaside setting that couples and their guests will never forget.

Red Frog Beach Island Resort is situated adjacent to a national marine park and overlooks protected rainforest and its namesake beach—designated as "One of the World's Best Secret Beaches" by The Travel Channel and "One of the Hottest Beaches in Central America" by MSNBC. The ceremony can be held right on the silky-sand beach itself; on the resort's peninsula boardwalk, with waves splashing all around; on the balcony of one of the resort's villas, with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea and tropical surroundings; or at Punta Lava, the resort's private restaurant located directly on Red Frog Beach with candlelight dining upstairs and a bar with live music downstairs.

"Weddings at Red Frog are a very relaxing experience from start to finish," resort director Steven Rieley said. "We have an onsite wedding coordinator to help with all the arrangements, including travel plans for the wedding party through Panama City."

A host of onsite amenities add to the relaxed, yet festive, atmosphere. The bride and groom receive a complimentary couples massage at the resort's full-service spa, opening in fall 2013. In addition to the spectacular beach, your guests will enjoy the resort's great activities such as a thrilling, two-hour Zipline Rainforest Canopy Tour offered at Red Frog. Or, explore abundant nature trails that lead to impossibly white-sandy beaches and encounter playful Capuchin monkeys, lazy tree sloths, squawking parrots, giant morpho butterflies and other native wildlife. The resort also has a beachside activity center with a full line of watersports equipment rentals available, including kayaks, Stand Up Paddleboards, surfboards and boogie boards. For those wishing to explore the surrounding area, Red Frog also offers than a dozen tours to the island's points of interest and neighboring keys. Set out by boat to see the dolphins, enjoy snorkeling amid colorful fish and reefs, immerse yourself in an indigenous Indian village, visit a working chocolate farm, or explore underground caves. Guided fishing charters, horseback riding tours and surf lessons for beginners also are available.

Red Frog Beach Island Resort's spacious and luxurious accommodations provide the bride, groom and wedding party plenty of room to spread out and make themselves at home before and after the nuptials. The resort features well-appointed one- to six-bedroom villas and suites, spaced widely apart amid picturesque gardens and ranging in price from just $149 to $1,071 per night (with All Inclusive packages that include food and tours available). Each villa features stunning Caribbean Sea and rainforest views paired with natural amenities such as private plunge pools, thatched poolside bahio huts, and private patios and decks.

"The villas are very private, surrounded by tropical gardens and spaced widely apart. Looking out toward the sea, you feel like you are on your own private island," Rieley said, adding that in May, June, September and October, guests actually can rent the entire island resort for their event. Private chefs also are available for wedding parties.
