My wife and I flew from Panama City to David a very pleasant and safe flight . It was an hour drive to get here from David on generally easy roads until the last few miles.

Stayed 3 nights in the suite end February. Very nice and comfortable accommodation which is very well managed. The views are amazing. It is true that there is not a large beach, but one can book very easy excursions and water taxis to the many islands. There are also 2 swimming pools, although water tends to be quite hot. All...
