Amazing is the word that fits the bill for everything we experienced in Picasso's B&B and in the beautiful place called Cerro Azul. From the moment we arrived, there was an easygoing pace, welcoming atmosphere, and we felt right at home. We are moving to Panama and Picasso was so helpful in referring us to a wonderful realtor on short... More

Do not even hesitate about comig here: it's the most amazing place ever! And Picasso, she's the most loving and caring person you'll meet. And she's an incredible cook too! From hearty meals to a nice and relaxing atmosphere, there's nothing I didn't like about this little piece of heaven in Cerro Azul.

My husband and I wanted a get away from Panama City.....so we went to see Picasso 90 minutes away. GINGER HOUSE provides excellent lazy birding.....meaning no early rising, spectacular birds all day long....while eating terrific meals. Picasso's cooking is creative and delicious. If she had a restaurant there would be a line. This was our 2nd visit and we love... More

Twelve of us were booked into the Ginger House and the Tree House. I was fortunate to be placed with Picasso...what a joy she is! Her personality fills the room without being overbearing. The setting is idyllic, with hummingbirds, honeycreepers and a motmot who visits regularly. I felt as though I was visiting a dear friend. Thank you, Birding Panama... More

Had the opportunity to Revisit the Ginger house for the first time. Sorry but Picasso is so pleasant and welcoming, when you first meet Picasso it feels like you have known her your whole life. Picasso is very attentive without being overbearing, she knows the area and shopping choices among many other things. The food, the food, the food -excellent!... More

We spent the last day and night of our Panama vacation with Picasso, which happened to be my birthday. She is the PERFECT host. Her food was wonderful and her company was great. She fixed the best birthday cake! Picasso has seen alot and done alot in her life, and is very interesting. But, don't get me wrong, she does... More

Picasso's goal is to promote wellness for her guests and for the nature around them & she accomplishes it with the beauty of her spirit & her home. We spent 4 nights in Ginger House's heavenly surroundings - several types of monkey's, countless beautiful birds and the serenity of the beautiful landscape, mountains & great sunsets.

I spent two nights here with my parents and had the most wonderful time. Picasso is a great host with excellent cooking abilities. Her house and garden are a perfect getaway. We've seen so many different birds (tanagers, tucans, honeycreepers, woodpeckers etc), had gatos solos, monkeys and neques visiting and enjoyed the great views from the house's balcony. I definitely... More

We really enjoyed our 4 nite stay at Ginger House. We were there during the rainy season although being from Phoenix, we love to see the rain. It normally would brew up a storm in the afternoon and we would sit out on the huge covered patio on the second story and just watch it pass by. Otherwise we had... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ginger House is a quaint guest house and wellness retreat located in the mountain community of Los Altos de Cerro Azul. Located 45 minutes from Tocumen International Airport, it borders the Chagres National Forest, which is loaded with wildlife. Rates include all of your meals unless you choose a lite rate, which is continental breakfast only. This is a place for nature lovers but not so far from the city that you can't enjoy a day of touring Panama City and its history. ... more   less
