Sierra Llorona Panama Lodge? or any place near Soberania?

My boyfriend and I were looking for places to stay for two nights outside of panama city. Somewhere near Soberania national park. We will not have a car drive but are willing to pay for taxi rides. We want hike around, see wildlife and be near nature. We are not birders so we are ruled out Canopy Towers. Gamboa doesnt appeal to us because of its large resortish/disneyish quality. I would appreciate if anyone can give us feedback about their stay at Sierra Llorona Panama Lodge or any other recommended place. Thanks in advance for any feedback or input.

I reccommend El Valle. It's closer and has everything you described. We stayed at Los Capitanes. Nothing Disney about that place! Great place for mountain jungle hiking and the Nispero zoo is very interesting. It was $2.

Have fun.

We stayed at Los Capitanes in El Valle in 2005. Please click on my profile for the review. If you don't have a car, stay at the Hotel Residencial right in town - you can walk to good eateries, the market is next door, etc. While Los Capitanes was a lovely (though very damp) setting, you will have to get a taxi everytime you go to town and the taxi service is very slow and Los Capitanes is on a very broken up road, so it will be a cheap, but a bouncy ride every time, quite a drag, we thought. It is okay if you have a car, but otherwise, stay in the village.

Read my review on Hotel Residencial also, it was spot on, and is now my place to stay in El Valle - get a room at the back, however, because the front will be noisy with road traffic. It is soooooo cheap also.

Thanks again for your recommendations. Although we did consider changing our travel plans to El Valle, we ultimately decided to stick to Sierra Llorona Panama Lodge. I would love to hear from anyone that stayed at this lodge or visited the surrounding area. Thanks again tripadvisor members!
