We have a small guesthouse surrounded by tropical rainforest, we live surrounded by nature animals like toucans, ñeques, deers, sloths, monkeys tons of diferent birds insects and other fun animals! our place is peacefull and quiet but very near the city so you can still enjoy the city life.
We are travelers too, so we created this guesthouse as an option for young backpackers who travel on a budget so that they could have a simple but confortable place to stay at a budget price. Our place is not luxurious but everyone likes the vibe and peace of our house and the surroundings. Panama is a very expensive city and the tourism has become very luxurious and expensive, we want to promote more ecotourism and cultural exchange rather than luxury, because Panama has an AMAZING biodiversity and rich culture that is unique in the world.
We have cats who protects us from the bugs, they are great hunters so we are safe from dangerous bugs and snakes because theyre very good at getting rid of them. We also have a small herb garden and a big tropical plant garden wich needs to be taking care of, also the house need a lot of mainteinance and painting, not more than 3 or 4 hours daily. There will be days that theres not much to do so you can make your plans if you wanna go explore other parts of Panamá.
