We're a new hostel located in Santa Fe, Veraguas. We offer adventure tours and accommodations. The hostal is surrounded by mountains and is next to the Santa Fe National Parque. There are many walks to amazing waterfalls that can be done from the hostal on your own, or we can arrange a vehicle for you. The hostal is located on a beautiful property with excellent mountain views, fruit trees and a small river flowing through. There is a kitchen to do your cooking and an outdoor bbq as well. Come explore the authentic Panamanian mountain town of Santa Fe, with its colorful gardens and friendly locals.

Santa Fe is an authentic Panamanian mountain pueblo. The owners of the hostal are all Panamanians from the province of Veraguas. You will have a great chance to experience local culture and language. The local people are friendly when approached with a little Spanish and a smile. There are also rich natural environments surrounding the hostal including the national park. Many beautiful waterfalls can be reached within a few hours hike.....take a swim when you get there.
We need help in customer service, social networking , booking, assistance in light cleaning in the kitchen and common areas and basic maintenance. When on duty, the volunteer will greet incoming guests and show them around the hostal. Taking bookings and reservations is also part of the experience. If you have skills with social networking and marketing, this can be another project to promote this new hostal. We are looking for people who are outgoing and social who can help to create a good vibe in the hostal.
A bedroom shared with one other volunteer, and a staff toilet. Vegetarian ingredients for making typical local breakfast and lunch foods. We try to get as much local, organic produce as possible. The volunteer will provide their own dinner (cena).
A very comfortable house, outside of town, to relax at. Beautiful landscape at the property, natural pool, full kitchen, bbq. You can go on many hikes from the hostal in the mountains and to the various large waterfalls. Visit local organic farms. Explore the national park and even hike to the Caribbean coast for the more adventurous. Santa Fe is known as the land of the jaguar.
The hostal is easily reached by minibus from Santiago, an important Panamanian city on the Pan Americana highway. The ride takes about an hour. Ask to get out at the Hostal if you like, or continue into the center of town if you want to do shopping or visit a restaurant. The hostal is about a 10 minute walk downhill from the town center of Santa Fe.
