We had a lovely stay at Rancho Juancho thanks to the kindness and hospitality of Eddie and Veronica. It rained most of the time so we didn't do much around but the place is beautiful and quiet, perfect for relaxing a few days. As pointed out by most guests the view is spectacular indeed and the surrounding nature is beautiful ; Portobelo is 8 km away and easily reachable using public transport (there is a chiva passing by every 20-30 minutes).
If you're travelling by bus, the drivers coming from Sabanitas know the place and will drop you right at the gates of the property. The access path from the main road is very steep but we called the owner at arrival and he immediately went to pick us up with his car.
The cabins themselves are comfortables but rather plain (no Wi-Fi, no hot shower, ageing bathroom). Kitchen equipment is minimal but we appreciated the possibility of cooking, and the hammocks are great. Panama lacks affordable accommodation and can be challenging for budget-minded travelers so we found Rancho Juancho to be a very good value for money. We would definitely come back !More
