We traveled to Panama with our 2 children (ages 8 and 11) for 9 days the first part of March. The 5 days that we spent at Casa Cayuco were by far our favorite part of our trip. Sue and Lloyd are amazing hosts and go out of their way to make sure everyone feels at home and has a... More

All the accolades for Casa Cayuco are well deserved. The location is beautiful, our cabin (Pelicano) was large and comfortable, and Sue and Lloyd are amazing, friendly hosts. The communal meals were fun, and every meal made by Sue was delicious. It was a pleasure to not only stay there, but the feel so welcomed and comfortable. We didn't get... More

This review is long overdue! I can't believe that I haven't posted this sooner... I suppose this now means that the honeymoon's over... Where to even begin? We came to Casa Cayuco in December for our honeymoon and it was the best trip of our lives thus far! Despite (or perhaps due to) the fact that it rained for most... More

Despite having the bad luck to be there on March 5th, when a cold weather front hit panama grounding six ships waiting to traverse the canal at the Colon entrance, we had a great time. Our hosts were amazing. Lloyd delivered us back to the boat taxi at Bocas through the subsiding seas a day after the worst; Sue is... More

Both Sue and Lloyd were completely knowledgeable about the area and the local culture, and Lloyd took us on incredible boating and snorkeling trips where the reefs were unlike any we had seen in the world. If you are a person who likes to snorkel, the mangrove island reefs will really blow your mind. We snorkeled 4 of the 7... More

My daughter and I were with docrox and ditto to her remarks. Our plane was late arriving into Boco but Lloyd was there waiting for us with a big smile! Upon arrival at Casa, Sue and dinner were waiting for us as well as a big welcome from Bella and Angus. We loved the jungle walk and seeing a three... More

I had this lodge on my list of places for quite some time but when I found a flight out of the midwest for $420 I couldn't resist. Sue and Lloyd do a fantastic job from start to finish. Sue keeps track of the reservations and is very prompt at answering emails. I arrived by myself as my family came... More

Casa Cayuco resort is not only nestled away in one of the most beautiful corners of the world you can imagine, it is also the place where my husband and I got married. Truly a place to cherish for all time. After spending a handful of amazing days snorkeling, hiking, swimming, and kayaking, Sue and Lloyd made sure that the... More

After a long and tiring trip down to Boca from Boquete, we were waiting on a dock for our 4.00pm pick up to get to Casa Cayuco. I started to worry; are we on the right dock; I have no mobile phone; what happens if the boat does not arrive /However at 3.50pm a boat arrived and the skipper looked... More
