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.

Everything is done exceptionally well. Excellent for birding and all nature studies and hiking. The food is some of the best I have had in nine years of living in Panama. The guides are reasonable and very knowledgeable.

We loved our stay in the cabin at Mount Totumas. The food at the lodge is exceptionally good, the coffee is the best we've ever tasted, and the hiking trails were beautiful. Our whole family cherishes the memories of our time there.

We spent four glorious nights in the new treehouse. At 7,000' Totumas was a welcome respite from the heat. The breath-taking scenery, hikes, birding, helpful staff and superb food made the rigorous journey getting here well worth it. Thank you Jeffrey, Alma, Karin and the rest

My family of five stayed in the cabin for five nights in March. Our goal was to spend our days hiking the trails and exploring the flora and fauna of the cloud forest. We could not have picked a better place! Jeffrey and Alma have created a little corner of paradise. Our cabin

Hola Diana Transporte desde Volcan es $60. Esta gasto es por viaje, no por persona y puede ser compartido con otros huespedes. Si tienes un carro 2x2 tenemos un lugar seguro donde los puedes dejar en Volcan. Si me das las fechas cuando piensas de visitarnos puedo confirmar si hay otros huespedes con que puedes compartir los gastos de transporte. Estamos ubicado 20km de Volcan, los ultimos 10km es un camino de 4x4. Gracias Jeffrey

"Families should consider renting the cabin and cooking some meals in"
"The treehouse is a bit of a hike to get to from the main building, so we ended up leaving our suitcase below."
"Hiring a local guide is a great way to spot more wildlife, but the guides speak limited English, so some Spanish is quite helpful."
"They have a variety of rooms, suites, and a cabin with complete kitchen."
"upstairs in the lodge has a fantastic view of the forest, downstairs has nice greenhouse-style bathrooms with natural light."
$120 - $176 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
