We did not make reservations, but we managed to get a room from Cerrito Tropical for two nights. There is a bit of a walk from the pier, and a very steep climb to the hotel, and quite hot to be dragging your suitcases.. Our room did not have a view, but it had all the essentials,a bed, a shower...

For example, in response to guest comments, we have recently renovated and upgraded 2 rooms and put in windows with a view of the tropical trees, hillside and pueblo. The best views are always outside from our shaded balconies. As I write this I...

The suite has an overwhelming ocean view. You can also see clear skies at night, shining stars, plus I had the beneffit of an espectacular full moon that weekend. The food is excellent at Cerrito and the personnel is alway eager to make your stay the best possible.

Back in Panamá, after a 2-year hiatus, I made another visit to Cerrito Tropical over at Taboga. Another great experience, the facilites & services are even better & the island life is still tranquil. A highlight was a circum-navigation of the island in one of the locals’s “barco’s” arranged by Cynhtia, including snorkelling of the shipwreck to see the fish...

After hearing about this wonderful little B&B from a friend, we contacted Cynthia the owner through her website. She was amazing and fast and very helpful with all the info we needed since we were new Taboga and its fun activities. She went out of her way to organize a great snorkeling trip, prepared incredible meals, and simply wonderful relaxing...

Don't believe the info easily retrievable that there are no restaurants on this island. There are a few, but fortunately we had most of our meals from the chef/manager of the Cerrito Tropical Hotel/B & B, Aristide. He is an excellent cook and much better than we found elsewhere on the island. The rooms are better than expected with tile...

I highly recommend this gorgeous Bed & Breakfast on Isla Taboga. Everything was perfect from the accommodations to the 5-star cuisine carefully prepared by resident Chef and Manager - Aristedes (and wife Valentina). Cynthia (owner) has created the perfect retreat away from the hustle of Panama City and I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxation during my week stay at Cerrito Tropical....

Visiting Cerrito Tropical at Taboga Island was a very unique experience. First the boat trip makes you feel like if you are slowly stripping form all your stress and helps you set a relax mood to arrive at Taboga Island, a folkloric place where everyone seems to live happily. Our arrival at Cerrito Tropical was not without despair - but...
