“Peaceful, healthy and smile-inducing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Reading reviews of other places in the area we had expected to stay at a neighboring hotel but seeing the dismal room sent us running and starting to fret since it was after dark. After finding no other accommodations we were sent to Journey B&B on a recommendation and were immediately calmed by the warmth and love of the gracious hosts. The food was custom, healthy and fresh. The room was clean and exceeding our expectations. The owners gave us a wonderful experience, thank you Carmen & Lee!

Even if the lights are off outside ring the door bell!

Room Tip: If the lights are off outside but you're there during awake hours ring the bell, you don't w...

We spent three nights at the Journey and we had a wonderful time. Lee&Carmen are amazing and so friendly. They know alot about the area and the panamanian culture. Their food is so good that you don't want to go to a restaurant. We can absolutely recommend this place and we would stop by at any time!

The four of us completely enjoyed our stay at Journeys. We had an amazing time. The house is clean and modern with ac's in every room. Thanks to the owners, Carmen and Levah, it felt like a home from home everytime we walked through the front door. The owners are absolutely wonderful and made our stay comfortable, pleasant and memorable. Carmen and Levah are so nice and willing to share everything they know about the area. The food was lovely, they even cooked us our Panamanian favourites!
As we are from Germany it was also extremely helpful that both speak English! We highly recommend the experience!
