Mount Totumas Cloud Forest is a 400 acre eco resort with private cabins and rooms located in a remote cloud forest wilderness bordering La Amistad National Park in western Panama. In 2014 we just completed the Bellbird Lodge perched on a ridge with views directly on to the canopy of the Cloud Forest. The lodge has a restaurant and 5 private rooms with bath and common area living area with large windows with stunning views into La Amistad National Park. Access to Mount Totumas Cloud Forest requires a 4WD vehicle and we provide transportation services from Volcan, David and Boquete for those guests that do not have their own 4WD vehicle. For guests with 2WD rental cars we provide a secure place to leave your vehicle in Volcan. There are 9 trails covering over 40km that provides access to 2nd growth and old growth forests, pastures, riparian and edge habitat. The Resplendent Quetzal, Three Wattled Bellbird and 200 other bird species have been recorded. Three species of monkeys and a great diversity of flora await you on the trails. We have accommodations that fit every budget from private rooms sharing kitchens where guests can prepare their own meals to exclusive cabins and full service restaurant. Great for families, birdwatchers, and those looking for a pristine natural environment. Climate is perfect for hiking, mornings are cool and mid day reaches warm but not hot temperatures. We are 1900m above sea level and border directly La Amistad National Park.

Highlight of our trip to Panama. Spent 5 days there walking all the trails, enjoying the incredible cloud forest vegetation including the bromeliads, orchids, ferns, tree ferns at higher elevation etc. & birds: quetzals, bell birds, hummingbirds, trogons, and many others identified with the help of others. this place is run by a wonderful friendly and knowledgeable family & staff. Was very happy we had 5 nights there & hope to return.

We had a magical experience! Superb scenery with well mantained hiking trails, and abundant bird life... We saw two quetzales in November! Delicious food with an Asian flavour. The host is very friendly and knowledgeable about nature.

It takes an effort to get tbere but once you are there, well, you are somewhere. The road to Totumas from the main road is quite a challenge but sure worth it. Totumas is set on top of a hill and the views are magnificent. All kind of birds flying around. The room in which we stayed had a very good and big bed. Spacious room (Bambito). Good and hot shower. All meals are very good, we enjoyed Alma s cooking. Jeffrey is very, very knowledgeable. Showed us some video s from jaguars and mountain lions that have been spotted in the Mount Totumas territory. We saw a belllbird. Approx 10 very well marked trails. All trails are beautiful. Unique place!

I am sure this place would be great at the right time of year. Except for the access road which is a one-hour nightmare. We make a big mistake by booking our tour of Costa Rica and Panama through a company called Reef & Rainforest (non Abta, non Aito). They sent us for a wildlife photography tour in May which is a very wet month. It rained morning and afternoon most days. They couldn’t care less. We were the only guests. But Reef & Rainforest still sent us there. Disgraceful. The owners had gone now that the season was over but we were very well looked after by their daughter, also a good cook and friendly hostess. The guide did his very best for us and we did get see the male quetzal in the dark forest. Apart from action at the well-designed hummingbird feeders there was litlte to photograph and it is impossible to get decent shots when it's raining or overcast. A real lost opportunity.

Before you get there, you have to take the access road, there is only one, and very difficult and 4x4 is essential. After more than 1 hour for a distance of 10 km you get there. The whole ambience is amazing. It begins with the hummingbird feeders near the Bellbird entrance, where about ten species are present. The accommodation is very comfortable and the meals excellent, thanks to Alma and staff We were accompanied by the young guide Reinaldo, who was very friendly, and showed us excellent views of many birds, including the Resplendent Quetzal and the Three-wattled Bellbird”and in the afternoon the hot water springs in Los Posos. A very special stay there end of may 2019.
