The initial inspiration for booking at La Loma came from our 14 year old who was researching places of interest and natural beauty on the Caribbean side of Panama. Being a lover of horticulture, he was taken with the prospect of visiting a chocolate plantation (having previously visited tea / coffee plantations in Sri Lanka). The opportunity to stay in an open air lodge surrounded by the jungle canopy and the possibility of having sloths and monkeys as neighbours was the deciding factor. From initial contact and questions of availability to transport logistics when traveling from the Pacific coast, Zabrina was outstanding in her efficiency and warmth. Arriving at the jetty surrounded by mangrove trees and having Ariel accompany us to the main lodge whilst explaining what was

We stayed four nights at la loma - and every day was something special. The lodge was stunning and the range of things you can do are plenty - thus the days went by quite fast. Our personal highlight was the hot chocolate to start the day as well as the food - So many amazing and creative dishes with ingredients right from the garden served in this fantastic enviroment is something you do not easily forget! We will keep these days in very good memory!

La Loma exceeded all our expectations. The under stated excellence of every detail from amazing food, to genuinely friendly staff, and help with the day's plans made every day special. The coffee tray drop off at our bungalow at 7am was a daily highlight. Our 9 year old enjoyed the entire experience. Mr. Kelly your time, knowledge of various medicinal plants, & the process of making chocolate was so interesting and appreciated. It’s a must if you visit La Loma. We enjoyed several activities off site including the dolphins in the bay, zip lining a short boat ride away, and learning about the local chacara woven bags. We donated supplies (with Give & Surf) to the local school and they were much appreciated. Rain jackets, flashlights, insect repellent were all helpful. The

I had come across La Loma on a travel site several years ago but only recently had the opportunity to book a stay here. I can see why the ratings are so high. Zabrina was super accommodating and helpful as I had to adjust details of our trips several times. Ariel was gracious, funny and a wonderful host. The food was nutritious yet sooo delectable - I don't think I ever left even a crumb on my plate! Mr. Kelly and Roger were great tour guides. Regretfully, we had taken a tour from Bocas town prior to our arrival at La Loma. Had we gone with either Mr. Kelly or Roger, I'm sure we would have had a much better experience. They are extremely passionate about their community and the environment and it definitely makes time spent with them that much more enjoyable. The early

My wife found the place by chance and we went based off other's reviews here and on Google. The reviews have been spot-on. Thank you for the recommendations some made and wanted to follow up. We went in mid-February 2019 and I am writing this soon after we got back. The place is run by Ariel (I hope I am spelling his name right) and Zabrina who are great hosts. As good as the place is by itself, they make it better. They are doing what they are doing for all the right rights and are positively impacting those around them. They also have a dedicated staff, and many have been there for years such as Mr. Roger and Mr. Kelly. This will try and go over some of the apsects of La Loma. The place itself is well kept. In fact, the property is gorgeous. You stay in one of lodges
