We decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at a warm place not too far from New York (up to 5 hours by air) but didn't want to do the standard Caribbean places ...so after some research we chose Panama, and with the high reviews at TripAdvisor we chose to stay at the Coconut Lodge.(stayed here for 4 nights).
This is a small bed and breakfast with a personal touch and someone to look after you. Breakfast and dinner were made to order, and even took our dietary restrictions into account. (Mike used to be a chef in Canada).
We were provided with rides and trip planning information with great details on what to see.
Mike and Nancy did not miss an opportunity to make our stay with them pleasant and enjoyable. The home is in a quiet beautiful neighborhood of private homes, gated and safe. The room was great, clean, spacious and modern looking, with a local touch.
As for cost, our room was $75 a night and included a full breakfast. (A comparable stay at Panama City at a good hotel was $200+). Dinner is also a bargain at $15 per person.
Nancy and Mike's recommendation to the one day tour of the Rain Forest and Monkey Island with Captain Carl was perfect and we really enjoyed it.
Overall, we strongly recommend staying at the Coconut Lodge. We had a good time. Thank you Mike and Nancy.
