“Beautiful Natural Hideaway”
Reviewed 28 November 2012

I truly loved this place! It was absolutely beautiful! Tucked away in the beautiful rainforest of Panama, this place is a gem! My son and I stayed in the large house and it was a great fit for us. The surroundings are absolutely breath-taking and perfect for hiking, horseback riding, or just hanging out. Jeff, Alma, and Karen (sorry for the misspell) and friends were also staying in the house and we could not have planned for a better time. We had a blast with these fun loving folks! Mount Totumas is the perfect place for people who love to be steeped in nature and yet have the amenities of home.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room off the hallway from the kitchen. Perfect place to hear the rain on the roof...

My family and I highly enjoyed the amazing natural environment and relaxed friendly atmosphere we experienced at Mount Totumas.

The quiet solitude coupled with active weather patterns, many beautiful birds and the calls of nearby howler monkeys made for an awesome, unworldly and spectacularly invigorating vacation.

The Karrelitz family will never be the same after our Mount Totumas experience.

We plan on returning with friends in the future and my sister Cheryl is thinking of getting married in the cloud forest.

My group consisted of 5 entomologists in search of new discoveries -- we made several. The accomodations were very cozy and our hosts, Jeff and Alma, were delightful and knowledgeable about the ecosystem and Panama in general. The location is dramatic and ecologically exciting. Strongly recommended for anyone who wants to hike the trails and enjoy the monkeys, birds, and general ambience of a tropical cloud forest adventure.

You absolutely need 4WD to reach it, however--or arrange with Jeff to pick you up in Volcan.

Room Tip: All rooms are basic but comfortable -- the new guest cabin is a delight, and includes a full kitchen...

Jeffrey and his staff have been great and friendly. The house where we stayed at is even nicer than in the picture. amazing relax, you are right in the forest, you can hear many different birds singing just for you, and also some monkeys a little more far away.
Reinaldo took us on a 2 hours hike and it was delicious. I wish we had more time to spend there!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Mount Totumas Cloud Forest is a 400 acre eco resort with private cabins and rooms located in a remote cloud forest wilderness bordering La Amistad National Park in western Panama. In 2014 we just completed the Bellbird Lodge perched on a ridge with views directly on to the canopy of the Cloud Forest. The lodge has a restaurant and 5 private rooms with bath and common area living area with large windows with stunning views into La Amistad National Park. Access to Mount Totumas Cloud Forest requires a 4WD vehicle and we provide transportation services from Volcan, David and Boquete for those guests that do not have their own 4WD vehicle. For guests with 2WD rental cars we provide a secure place to leave your vehicle in Volcan. There are 9 trails covering over 40km that provides access to 2nd growth and old growth forests, pastures, riparian and edge habitat. The Resplendent Quetzal, Three Wattled Bellbird and 200 other bird species have been recorded. Three species of monkeys and a great diversity of flora await you on the trails. We have accommodations that fit every budget from private rooms sharing kitchens where guests can prepare their own meals to exclusive cabins and full service restaurant. Great for families, birdwatchers, and those looking for a pristine natural environment. Climate is perfect for hiking, mornings are cool and mid day reaches warm but not hot temperatures. We are 1900m above sea level and border directly La Amistad National Park. ... more   less
