All the rave reviews on this place still don't do it justice - I'm not sure I even have the words to offer anything that someone else hasn't conveyed. La Loma has been featured in Conde Nast so the praise is well deserved. It's a jungle paradise, a foodies paradise, a nature lovers paradise, a getaway of getaways...... you can... More

I was worried it wouldn't live up to all of the good reviews, but I'm happy to say it exceeded them. Steve and Karen, who were filing in for Henry and his wife were excellent hosts. We were so well taken care of. We had cabin 2 which has the most amazing view of the water, and you can watch... More

We just spent 4 nights there and i confirm the eco lodge is as great as described by the other travellers. We enjoyed all the activities as the staff made it very special. A special thanks to Roger, Chapi, Steve and Karen! The close relationship with the local community and the home made everything (from the amazing food to the... More

This place is magical and amazing, and the perfect place to truly unplug. The lack of cell service and TVs was a great thing, as all I wanted to do here was dig into nature. The on property hiking trails, wonderful meals, terrific company and super kind hosts (Steve and Karen were working while I stayed) make it the kind... More

We stayed at 3 different places in Bocas and this by far was the best. I could write so many wonderful things but I feel they would be simply re-stating everything that is great about this place again. So the only things I can add to the wonderful reviews are the following: Cabina 2 is amazing with amazing views, keep... More

As an American citizen living in Panama, I don't go into any place with high expectations. Not even in the city. I live in the country so I know bugs, animals etc.. are just a normal part of being in Central America. We weren't sure about spending so much money to stay at La Loma but the photos looked so...

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
