Why not escape in the mountains around 1.5 hrs out of Panama city? It is a 150 hectare finca and where we have our Mamallena eco lodge. We will be focusing on organic permaculture agricultural techniques to run the finca as well. It has 4 hectares of lemons, and a huge array of other fruit tree orchards as well as vegetable and herb fields, two streams with natural swimming pools.

Such a great time here for three nights. Brandon, Eileen and Vlad make you feel right at home and help you with any questions. The hostel is a great place to relax in the middle of the mountains and forest. Dinners were great and definitely try the home made wine!

I would recommend Mamallena Eco Lodge in La Laguna to anyone! The site of the hostel was beautiful, the rooms were clean, and the nature is stunning. Vlad the manager was extremely easy going and helpful. He had great recommendations for hikes and siteseeing, cooked a great (free) breakfast in the morning, and made some great cocktails at night. Dinner is optional, but recommended. The cabana next to the river has a private patio and deck to enjoy. There are also laid back pups to hang out with after a nice hike. Thank you Vlad and Mamallena! Annie and Jordan

I absolutely loved the lodge. I arrived after a couple of wks in Bocas Del toro, and it was the perfect place to chill in the mountains. Beautiful scenery all around, and the lodge itself is lovely. Delicious fresh vegetarian food, or fresh fish if you request it for dinner. Vlad is fantastic. Full of information on things to do, and he couldn’t be more friendly and helpful. I loved it so much I stayed for 10 nights. I would go back in a heartbeat to relax and go on peaceful walks. Thank you so much for having me!

We had a great time at the mamallena eco lodge! The lodge is an old beautiful house in the middle of the mountains, with comfy beds, nice details, relaxing hammocks, good wifi and hummingbirds around you. It’s the perfect place to relax, enjoy nature and the family-like atmosphere of the hostel (really, one evening we started playing didgeridoo around the fireplace). Will is a fabulous Chef, all of the food he made looked and smelled deliciously (you should check it out!). Vlad and Will even drove us to the bus station and to el Valle to do some shopping. You can go hiking and afterwards relax at the natural pool in the hostel. We spent our last nights there before to go back home and it was definitely a beautiful end to our trip. Thank you!
