After stop at David, we discovered a nice B&B at Las Lajas near to the Pan American Highway. The experience was fabulous, the cabaña was perfect and so beautiful. The construction of that Wall with bottle of glass is something unique that you cannot see everywhere. The inside was modern, design mix with solid wood and glass...all the space are... More

The breakfast especially is interesting with the cashew marmalade & fruit from their garden . You are a few miles from the... More

Friendly people here and comfortable room with a unique set up. The owners have built a separate guest house made from concrete, bottles and rocks. The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is lovely and interestingly designed. There are friendly dogs on the property and a great restaurant nearby. The biggest issue for us is that we were travelling by... More

We traveled from Pennsylvania at Christmas time just to stay in the incredibly beautiful "bottle house'! My husband choose Panama and I choose La Pepita de Maranon! He agreed of course as he creates stain glass windows and sun catchers that use recycled glass and bottles. We both wanted to experience living inside such a changing light filled space. We... More

I had a wonderful several night stay in the glass cottage. Welcoming and helpful couple. Delicious breakfast. I enjoyed the bird song right outside the cottage. A very nice place to call home away from home. Be sure to catch both sunrise and sunset at the beach !

We stayed here for one night in the bottle house. It is an amazing little accommodation built from glass and plastic bottles. From inside it is even more impressive then from the outside. It is also located very close to the panamericana and on beautiful grounds, with an amazing view of the highlands at the back. The Italian couple that... More

We stayed for one night in the beautiful and special bottle cottage. The owners Erika & Fabio are really kind and they explained us a lot about Panama while we enjoyed the fresh and delicious breakfast. They were also helping us to plan our stay in Las Lajas and so we had a very good time there. We highly recommend... More
