What an experience. We stayed in Cabana number 1 which is the only one with electricity and is the shortest walk from the dining area and dock. I can’t say enough about the hosts and the food – absolutely delicious! Everything was organic and the meals were gourmet. The best part was taking a hike from La Loma over to... More

I surprised my husband and two kids with a vacation at La Loma for five nights in March. It is almost four weeks later and we still talk about it EVERY DAY! What an incredible experience. Margaret and Henry are so kind and very interesting to talk to. They are incredibly upbeat and cheerful and are quick to attend to... More

La Loma Lodge is an incredible place. Henry and Margaret have created a thoughtful, beautiful and unique destination in the middle of the jungle. The attention to detail is pervasive and impressive. This is a rustic experience that has so many elegant touches. The simple cabins have fresh tropical flowers, the wooden pathways are lined with lush tropical plants and... More

There’s really nothing new we can add to the already glowing reviews of La Loma – everything is true. We stayed for four nights in the second cabin which has gorgeous views. The cabin is simple but tastefully out fitted. There’s no electricity (you won’t miss it) but plenty of lanterns and a flashlight for the path down to dinner.... More

This is the most amazing place. Henry and Margaret, the owners, are fantastic. The food was brilliant. The location is perfect. The ambience cannot be beat. I wish I could stay there every year. And, it's a thousand times nicer than staying at one of those bungalows over the water (I did that as well). If you can get a... More

I don't "do" writing reviews. It's just not my thing, haven't got the time etc. However, how could i not write a review about this amazing place? Our cabin had views which were out of this world, we were treated like family by Henry and Margaret, and the food was beyond compare. What really makes La Loma is the intimacy... More

What a place - we cruised around Cape Horn then flew to Panama to visit a friend and he took us to La Loma. This is a late review and Margaret's baby is due today. Good luck Margaret and Henry. Fabulous, simplistic life in the jungle.. Basic but adequate accommodation given the location. The food is beyond belief, fresh, delicious... More

My husband and I spent 5 days at La Loma as part of our honeymoon. We stayed in the second cabin which has an unbelievable view over the jungle and sea. Everything during our stay was exceptional.

I had booked the Jungle Lodge with much eagerness after reading all the amazing reviews. Although in the back of my mind I thought surely this place cannot be real? Can such paradise be found on the internet? The great food, the views, the people, the unique private exclusive experience, the personal touches? YES! It's all true, everything you read,... More
