Beautiful lodge and the host was amazing. Brought me around the country to several amazing Panamanian adventures. Enjoyed the mountain view and swimming in the pool at the edge of a jungle with a bar right by the water :)

I stayed here during a school trip and all I can say is wow! The location is absolutely stunning! The backyard overlooks a valley, and the views are beautiful. There are tons of beautiful flowers and fruit trees. The air is so clean and fresh! I loved sitting in the hammocks outside and reading. There are several hiking trails located on the property as well. Phil was a great host! He is so knowledgeable about Panama and the local community. If you are looking for a beautiful, quiet location to stay, I would definitely recommend La Joya de Chica!

We just had our 8th stay at this wonderful Lodge in Chama. This is where my husband and I go to get away from it all and spend time alone. La Chica de Joya is a hidden gem that you need to experience when in Panama. The Lodge has a beautiful pool and manicured gardens. The grounds are eye candy with lots of nature and beautiful fruit trees everywhere. If you enjoy beautiful tropical breezes and being surrounded by exotic flowers and plants you will feel right at home. We love sitting on the back patio every night sipping wine and listening to the sounds of the jungle. The owner Phil prepares (upon request) the most delicious dinners. The ingredients are local and many come from his own property. Breakfast is always included and served with the tastiest fruit that is ripened perfectly! The Lodge is pristine clean and lots of attention paid to details--if you forget something you can be sure Phil has a spare. We'll keep coming back because Phil makes us feel so welcome. Thanks for a great Valentine's Day Phil.

Our stay at La Joya de Chica was excellent! It was by far our favorite place to visit on our trip to Panama. Phil, the gracious owner, was very accommodating to our family of five (including 3 very active boys.) The property has a great mix of relaxation (i.e the pool and star gazing) as well as activity. You don't have to go far to enter the wild with on-site hiking. Phil was great cook and wonderful host. I would highly recommend staying here!

We have visited this lodge on several occasion for the enjoyable and delicious Sunday brunch to relax on a Sunday afternoon surrounded by Campana National Park and the small rural community of Chicå. Finally had the opportunity spend a night. Breathe and release yourself to the quiet and peaceful environment surrounded by nature. The two suite accommodations are comfortable and you are graciously attend by the host owner. Treated to a glorious sunset and sunrise reaching out over the hills. i get relaxed just reliving the visit. Enjoy a glass of wine to kiss the sunset good night and fresh brewed coffee to greet the sunrise. This is a special place surrounded by nature. Even though we live in Panama we would return to this tranquil lodge.
