Run by an ex-Peace Corp volunteer who returned to Panama to retire. This is a very off-the-beaten-trail place, great for relaxing. A few restaurants are within walking distance. For more excitement, you can get to nearby cities by an inexpensive taxi ride. Right on the "beach" where the tide washes in. But when the tide washes out, it's a 1/2... More

This is a very nice, clean, peaceful, colorful place. The attention from Bonnie was awesome. I spent several days with the wife and my sister, and looking forward to do it again, but next time would be my wife and I only. There was not complain at all. Great place to rest, and relax. highly recommend it.

The lodge is just like home away from home and there are a couple of nice restaurants walking distance... More

And of course we had the opportunity to sit on the veranda and watch... More

Bonnie, the owner of the B&B, is a gracious hostess. She knows the area incredibly well and has relationships with all the locals for crats and local traditions. The rooms are clean and well kept. The back veranda looks at the sea and is great for resting and reading. The breakfasts are always more than enough and coffee is always... More

This was absolutely our favorite place to stay in Panama. Sadly we were only able to stay 2 nights as Bonnie, the owner, already had bookings. The appartment we stayed in had a beautiful new large bathroom, a well equiped kitchenette, good size bedroom and a large living room overlooking the beach with refreshing sea breezes coming through the screens....

Bonnie is absolutely fantastic! She is so passionate about her work in the community. She is extremely knowledgable about the traditions of Panamanian culture. If you are looking to learn about the pollera, the music, and other trademarks of the Azuero Peninsula, you NEED to go to Casa del Puerto. Peace Corps Volunteers, former Peace Corps Volunteers, and those not... More

Bonnie's B&B is like being in a small town in the Midwest of the U.S., but on a beach. Friendly town to walk around. Drive to Pedasí and on to Venao, a top surfing spot.

I love this place. The people of the area are wonderful and the owner, Bonnie Birker is SO very helpful and knowledgeable. She is an ex Peace-Corps worker who loved the area so much she dedcided to stay - The little place is off the beaten path with a large expanse of deserted beach and a great local flavour bar...
