  • Description

    Description

    We are an ecolodge based in the Chiriqui Highlands of Panama, the highest province in Panama that bears resemblance to the Alps or the Himalayan mountains in Bhutan.
    In 1960, we bought land that was being deforested, planted trees and built a few cabins to create an ecotourist attraction. That land is now part of two parks- Volcan Baru National Park and La Amistad International Park.
    We have 10 hotel rooms, 7 suites, 3 dorms and 5 cabins. We offer hiking tours, mountain biking, horseback riding, birding and also have a spa.
