It was one of the most soulful places in Panama. The owner is a sincere and pleasant man who really cares about environment and does his best to make a good stay. It was amazing to go on hike and see a sunset over the ocean from a high hill. Thanx a lot!

Are you looking for a relaxing and quiet spot closed to one of the longest(and prettiest) beaches in Panama, this is the place. You will get great service, and an owner who really cares about you. Simple, eco friendly and perfekt for people who wants a breake from the parties. A place to get inspiration.

We arrived in the afternoon and were the only guests in the hostel. We were brought to our room by a guy, who seemed to be the only one present at Nahual. The hostel, like the whole beach area had an abandoned feeling about it. The rooms, common area, animals and garden looked like they hadn't been taken care of....

Las Lajas was one of the highlights of my time in Panama, and this hostel was apart of that. I liked it so much I went back before leaving the country. The hostel is a short walk from the beach - one of the longest in central america. It is beautiful and not many people go there. The hostel itself...

What an amazing place! I cannot say enough good things about Nahual and it's owner Elisa. Nahual is not on the beach, but it is very close. You can hear the surf pounding from the rooms. The whole place is like an amazing little forest filled with birds and flowers. This is a serious eco hostel. It's not a marketing...

From the moment you enter the front gate, you are enveloped in a lush canopy. The atmosphere is laid back, and, as advertised, eco-friendly. You're just as likely to be greeted by an inquisitive rescue pet as a courteous staff member. This hostel has a unique personality. There's several sleeping options. I chose a semi-private room with four beds, and...

I really like the Nahual because it is different to the majority of the hostels. It is like a big blooming garden and really deserves the name "Hospedaje Ecológico". They even use alternative cleaning methods and save energy wherever it is posssible. My doughters loved the dogs and enjoyed the beautiful beach "Playa Las Lajas".

Having around children so well behaved as yours is a blessing. Those Little girls are angels and, even better, nature loving angels. All the animal (and human) family miss them, bring them back soon to play with us.

This wonderfull, tropical little paradies, created by a unique and interesting woman, will fill your heart and mind with the flow of the wild panamenian beaches and mangroves, the stars around you, looking at night above the sky, seeing comets flying over the firmament or blue butterflies, which cross your morningway to the delicious vegan breakfast.
