Cabanas Potosi is located in the second largest shield volcanic crater in the world. The cabins are family owned and offers bird guided tours with one of Panama's best bird guides, Mario Bernal. The valley sits at 3,000 (1,000 Meters) above sea level and is the home of over 300 species of birds plus migratory birds during October and March. Many family owned restaurants are located with walking distance of the cabins. You can get to El Valle by traveling by bus on the Pan-American Highway from Panama City, Panama. The trip takes about two hours of which the last 18 miles (30 Kilometers) offers beautiful view of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Come and visit us soon and wake up to a symphony of birds every morning.

We stayed here in June 2019 and were recently looking at photos from our trip and remembered we had forgotten to write a review of this lovely place. It is set within the most beautiful gardens where we spotted all sorts of birds and other animals. Each cabana is cosy and comfortable we all slept really well waking to the sounds of the birds each morning was very pleasant. The owners were friendly and helpful, it was funny bumping into them twice at restaurants in town. We really hope to one day return to Panama and stay here again!

Cabanas Potosi misses you. Unfortunately we have been closed since March 1st and do not plan to open until the virus is under control so as not to endanger our two employees who are still working for us. Also, Mireya is dealing with some health problems and needs to get better. Take care and stay safe.

Dennis and Mireya are lovely hosts who jmake you feel welcome and at home. The cabanas are situated in a beautiful and large garden, full of nice places to sit and enjoy the birds and flowers. De rooms are nice and clean and if you want you can kook in a kitchenet. We had a beautiful walk with Mario to watch the birds and several other very nice hikes. Also there are good restaurants in El Valle. We recommend this place as one of the most beautiful of Panama.

We were greeted by friendly host e at the entrance to the big garden which looks like a botanical garden! Lots of trees, shrubs, flowers and singing birds - a real green paradise! Bungalows are set among the greenery. Our room was spacious, with 2 comfortable beds and bathroom attached. I loved paintings on the walls (birds, flowers...) which can be seen in the other rooms too. Staying with Dennis and Mireya is like visiting friends! They are so attentive, talkative, and they know a lot about nature, El Valle and have lots of suggestions what to do for a few days. Mireyas brother is a bird specialist, so if you are here for birdwatching he is the one to hire for a tour! Breakfast is simple but tasteful - we tried local coffe from the families plants. The bungalows are in a walkable distance from the town and close to some waterfalls. If you dont have your own transportation Dennis is always prepared to give you a lift.

I worried a little, before arriving at Cabanas Potosi, because it is a little out of town (about 1 km), and I was travelling by public transportation, but Dennis' free shuttle service happily overcame that problem. I also was concerned, being a solo traveller, about loneliness, but I was warmly received by thoughtful, gregarious hosts who created impromptu events, like a yoga class and a wine & snacks get-together for all guests. As they say: 'You arrive a stranger, and you leave as a friend'. Thank you, Dennis and Mireya. You were one of the highlights of my trip to Panama.
