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 !

A very nice welcome from Erika and Fabio and an excellent night to remember we had together for our last day 2014. Our stay was very enjoyable ! The fresh breakfast is excellent and we keep in our memory the really good taste of the marmalade of cashews and the italian dinner. We also appreciated the really very beautiful beach... More

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

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
