This time we wanted to visit Isla Taboga on our trip to Panama. In search for a good hotel on this island, I came on the website of Cerrito Tropical. Pictures and information looked good to me so I booked for 1 night.
Finally we got there : and indead, it was great.
1 big mistake : I only booked for 1 night. Great rooms, great meals, great view (ships waiting to enter the Canal + Panama City), helpfull Aristides, ....
We wanted to see the poison frogs (Dendrobates auratus) on this island and in fact we didn't have to search very far. They were jumping already behind the hotel.
The only negative thing I can say is : I was hoping to see the owner there (who speaks English and who I had contact with on e-mail) but the hotel was run by Aristides and his wife (who don't speak English). But : in case of (language)problems, Aristides just phones to the owner to solve the problem.
