My husband & I booked this thru the Red Frog Beach Resort. Boat picked us up for the quick trip to La Loma. We were greeted by the friendly caretakers and went on a guided tour of the cacao farm. Beautiful, tropical & thoroughly interesting tour/hike thru farm & jungle. We learned so many interesting things about the history of... More

We were picked up from Bocas airport and walked (5minutes) to the boat. La Loma on Bastimentos is a 15-20 minute ride in between the islands. We arrived via a little pier hidden in the mangrove and walked on a wooden passageway into the jungle to the main lodge were delicious communal meals are served and where you can replenish... More

While we stayed on a neighboring island, my husband and I took a trip to La Loma for a tour of the chocolate farm and for lunch during our honeymoon, and we were not disappointed! From the time we arrived to the time we left, all the staff and everyone at the lodge was incredibly welcoming and very friendly. The... More

This tour was recommended by a friend and what a favor it was. We enjoyed the hike through the farm and afterward were served a wonderful lunch. Learned so much. Our host Steve and Karen were pleasant as could be. Saw a sloth and its baby just hanging out.

Steve and Karen and everyone at La Loma made this a very special day. We got there early so one gentleman spent time hgelping us are a sloth and her baby in the trees rather than have us wait needlessly. It is this attention to every detail that ensures you will be having fun! Fun and informative tour (not too... More

The experience as a whole was wonderful, from start to end. I went with my boyfriend for a vacation. The pictures on the website do not do the room justice. The cabins were so beautiful, the perfect place to relax in luxury and still be surrounded by untouched wilderness. We was able to watch a sloth with it's baby everyday... More

We have done a fair bit of travelling in our time and have had the odd splurge on nice places to stay and la Loma is by far one of the best (if not the best). The food was incredible and the owners and the staff are really lovely especially Chappie who took us for a long night walk and... More

My husband and I booked La Loma for the first half of our honeymoon. We wanted a remote, quiet jungle lodge- we got that and much, much more. The owners Henri & Margaret arranged transport for us from Bocas Airport, greeted us upon arrival and were very hands on during the whole stay. There are only 4 cabins so this... More

We wish we had been able to stay here, but were only able to visit for a dinner. This was an all around great experience. La Loma provided a water taxi to get to and from the property, so logistics were easy. Henry and his family cooked a world-class meal for me and my girl friend and the other guests,... More

My wife, daughter (age 11) and I, along with two other families had the immense pleasure of staying at La Loma in March 2016. The proprietors, Henry and Margaret Escudero (and their son Lucho), have created a truly unique and breathtaking travel experience that is unlike anything we have experienced. Beautifully nestled within the western hillside jungle of Bastimentos Island... More
