We stayed at Ivans Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights on our fortnight trip to Panama. Even though Ivan had given good driving directions we still got lost coming out of Panama City and finally paid a taxi driver to lead us in the right direction.
When we arrived Ivan drove around with us to show us some of the best bird watching areas and give us a general orientation.
We had a double room with private facilities for $90US a night and we also arranged for dinner at $15 per person each night as choices are limited in this area. Breakfast was also included in the room cost.
Room was clean and enough space to put our bags out. There was an air con in the bedroom.
Ivan was a good and knowledgeable host and introduced us to his other guests. He also had a lovely small dog named Lilly.
Would recommend this small accommodation in comparison to the busier and costly resort down the road.
