It's secluded, in the middle of nature, yet not far from a small town to get some groceries and only about an hour from Panama City.
The climate is cool but not cold, wildlife all around and a 10 minute hike to a really cool waterfall and pond. All around the property there are fruit trees, flowers from the flower farm.
I've stayed there a few times and it's an awesome place to get away from it all and feel like you have hectares of land just to yourself to roam about.
The owners are very easy going and friendly. They don't get into your hair yet will be there if you need anything.
I'e enjoyed staying more than one night to really make the most of getting away from the city and recharge.
The pictures are accurate and it's even more impressive in person.
Within 1 hour of Panama City and even closer to the beach. The hosts are great, the pictures are accurate, and the facilities are well maintained. Bring your groceries, unplug for a few days, and enjoy nature without sacrificing the essentials such as a functional kitchen, comfortable beds, running water, and air-conditioned rooms. The 2 bedroom cottage is part of a family farm complex, co-located next to a larger house and expansive (but walk-able) acreage. A 15-minute hike in one direction takes you to a secluded waterfall and a 15-minute hike in a different direction takes you to beautiful flower fields and fruit trees; the possibilities are endless. It’s a peaceful, safe, and very private place where you can explore all day, play flower-farmer for a day, or just read a book in a hammock.
Tranquility, fresh air, flora & fauna, pool, waterfall, comfortable accomodation, privacy - this is one if the best places to stay. Only regret is that we did not spend a week there..
Most relaxing week I spent at any getaway here in Panama since I relocated two years ago. Very low key, relaxed by the pool one day, hiked down to the waterfall another.
No internet or tv to distract. I was truly able to get away from work and just relax. Just sitting on the balcony watching the birds, animals and Mother Nature. Even saw a troop of mini monkeys early one morning.
The people picking the flowers let me hang out with them and watch while they rinsed the flowers and prepared bouquets for market.
