My family of 5 stayed 3 nights at Cabanas Potosi, and I totally could have stayed longer. LOVED the garden property, the hammocks, the wildlife, and of course the owners Dennis and Mireya.

Perhaps I should mention I used to live in Panama, and my expectations for service there are not always high but I had an absolutely amazing experience staying at Cabañas Potosí.

We had the pleasure of spending four days here. It's clean, comfortable, and well maintained. Dennis and Mireya were very knowledgeable of the area, people, and wildlife. It's close to the markets, restaurants, and all of the attractions El Valle has to offer. I highly recommend Cabanas Potosi!

Everything all the reviews say and more. It would have to be said to be minimalistic but look at the price. Just the place to relax and unwind. Gracious hosts and the sound of nature. It had all we needed and we left more at rest than when we got there!

I have to say that the location was spectacular, but the fact that the owners were not present put a slight twist on our stay here.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less

“I recommend that you avoid visiting during Carnival week- as the celebrations at neighboring properties goes long into the night and can be quite loud. This is not a problem when Carnival is over (or during the day during Carnival) when it is quiet and peaceful.”
