It's really a magical place--to fall asleep to the sounds of the jungle all around you is bliss. Steve and Karen were the hosts the week we were there and they were so much fun and so accommodating. Definitely do the jungle hike to the beaches! The massages in your room are also heavenly. It's a perfect escape with fantastic...

This is one of my favorite places I've ever stayed, with an ideal combination of privacy, sensory experience and small group activities. Henry and Margaret have created treetop cabins that feel like you're living outdoors while also being in your own private space. We took a snorkeling trip and also visited the idyllic Zapatillas islands, and had three incredible meals...

We went on a walk at the chocolate farm and had lunch. The owners, Henry and Margaret, could not have been nicer. Jamie took us for a tour of the grounds, pointing out the various plants and trees. I learned a lot about plant life in jungles that I didn't know before. We then a a delicious, healthy, homemade lunch...

I will never forget this trip. Henry and his wife are the best hosts you can imagine: attentive, always available, very nice and welcoming and care deeply about their guests. I stayed with friends for a couple of nights and the cabins met high interior standards while allowing the experience of an open cabin which felt like you live in...

The chocolate farm tour was fabulous! We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Henry is extremely knowledgeable and him and his wife were very hospitable. The tour was about an hour and a half with a delicious lunch provided by Henry and his wife. We would highly recommend this attraction!

Lovely, upscale facility in a jungle setting. Gourmet food, very attentive staff. Unique travel experience. Although it is upscale, it is an ecolodge and the cabins are open air and provide mosquito nets and fans. The no-see-ums are able to sometimes get in through the nets. Please research before booking as this is a different experience than a traditional hotel...

The La Loma Jungle Lodge was an amazing experience. We felt like we got to know a part of Panama in an intimate, yet luxurious way. Henry and Margaret are friendly hosts, always asking about their guests needs and providing every necessary amenity. Other reviewers have done a great job reviewing the cabins. We found them beautiful and perfectly meeting...

We spent 3 days in La Loma Jungle Lodge and didn't want to leave! We stayed in cabin (No. 4) with a breathtaking view into the ocean, literally in the middle of the rain forest. The place was very comfortable, nice and clean, with all these small details (like coffee and muffins ready in the cabin before you wake up:))....

I stayed four nights in an open-air, tree-house in the rainforest, sloths oozing by our balcony. It was the most incredible stay of my life. Everything is considered, you are provided with all of the anti-bug stuff you'll need to make your open-air cabin experience 100% bug free. The best part was each morning, a fresh baked muffin and high-quality...
