          The main problem is Air Panama's website which seems to be impossible to reach from abroad. But the lodge can make the arrangements if you ask them. Expect to pay around $150 rt

          Hi there, there are 2 fans in the room that were sufficient for us. The cabin being on the water gets a nice breeze.
