This is one of the most spectacular places I have ever been. We were only able to get a one night stay - wish we could have extended for sure. It completely exceeded all expectations - I had no idea it was going to be as cool as it was. The lodging is definitely similar to a treehouse - you... More

Very nice place. La Loma means steep and it is indeed. 4 small houses, for 4 couples. 4 nights. Almost no electricy. Almost no nothing. But it is very good thing. So close to the nature. So close to the animals, plants and sky, because small houses are elevated 3,4 meters above the ground. Owners very, very nice. Good, organic... More

La Loma was the highlight of my Panama trip! I expected I to be amazing but after arriving I found it to be 10 times better! The food is amazing, the owners and volunteers are all extremely friendly, and the bat cave tour was so exciting! I will definitely come back again one day. My only regret was that I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at La Loma. It is a very special place and experience. You get to live in the jungle, enjoy a wide variety of activities, experience Henry and Margaret's special, genuine, personalized style of innkeeping and on top of it all, you can feel good that the lodge employs locals and gives back to the community....

I don't know what I can say that hasn't already been said in other reviews! They are all dead on. Traveled with 4 kids (5 - 10), and 6 adults (aged 39 - very active 66) and had an amazing time. This is a great place for families. The kids absolutely adored it and are still talking about it weeks... More

La Loma is truly unique. At the heart of it are the owners Henry and Margaret who are amazing people. Their absolute dedication to La Loma shows in every aspect of the lodge from the lovely rooms, to the delicious fresh meals that contain many ingredients grown on the property, to the excursions that are great fun. This is a... More

This was a bit of a wildcard for me, as i wasn't sure if my non-traveller husband would be up for it (I have a propensity to sleep walk too so he was nervous) so i booked it without telling him! And we LOVED it. The food is to die for, the drinks are perfect, the hosts Margaret and Henry... More

Henry and Margaret have created an experience at their jungle lodge that is beyond special. Their care of your every need is skillfully nuanced and non invasive to your privacy . My wife and I wish we could live like this every day from the 7AM coffee and muffin delivery to the detailed planning of daytime excursions to the truly... More
