Erika and Fabio built this incredible cabaña themselves, which is amazing! They used recycled bottles for the walls and it looks soooo nice! Very comfortable and truly something special. Also they made us a fresh breakfast with freah pineapples out of their garden and they also cookes a very nice dinner for us.

After a very long day of traveling, we finally arrived at La Pepita de Maranon. We felt bad about arriving at almost 11pm, but it was no problem. We were greeted by Fabio and his two adorable dogs. The first thing I noticed about the glass cabin was how clean it was. There were plenty of places to place toiletries,... More

We had a great time starting our Panama trip off at the Pepita de Maranon. Erika and Fabio were very inviting and made us feel at home. They had a book with activities to do. We took the day trip ($30 each) to Isla Selva de Fuera. Highly recommended. The place is really nice, 10 min from the beach and... More

The glass cottage was a fantastic experience and would definitely stay there again! Erika and Fabio are wonderful hosts and very friendly. The glass cottage is clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our stay. The location is beautiful and overlooks the mountains. The sun shining through the glass walls in the morning is breathtaking. Our breakfast the following morning... More

We stayed here for one night and had a great time with the owner/operators, Erika and Fabio. Perfect for a quiet place to hang out and enjoy sunsets and sunrises over the hills and valleys, as well as relatively close and easy access to the beautiful Pacific beach. A light breakfast including fresh fruit, toast and coffee was accompanied by... More

We stayed at La Pepita for three nights. It was a great escape from all the noise of places like David and Bocas, we welcomed the quiet. Las Lajas is a very tiny town, so if you are looking for relaxation and the chance to disconnect this would be the right place. There is a resort about 12km away from... More

A small B&B run by a very friendly young Italian couple. Offers a very quiet stay in a well decorated room with a loft. The room was clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated. Delicious breakfast. Supper menu available and tours arranged. Well worth a visit for the price.

A very welcoming place! Road to Bocas del Toro we decided to spend the night in Las Laja, Chiriquí. We found that La Pepita Marañon was the perfect place to stay because of the location and price, belive me we were not wrong in our choice. The room, made with recycled bottles charm us! and more aware that a project... More
