We really wanted to stay there and the hosts were very helpful, very warm and shared a lot of stories and experiences. They are passionate about the place and the environment. It felt like staying with a Panamian aunt. The cabanas are nice with outdoor hammock and table and chairs and a lush garden. The inside is clean and functional,...

I see our room got rated a 2 - It is because we are eco-logical cabins and do NOT have a swimming pool, TV's or A/C but we do have a frig., hot water showers, very comfortable beds and Wifi. Since we are located away from the city center the TV cable line is 1/2 a mile away. I noticed...

A quaint little area tucked away from town, but walking distance to a littl waterfall. The surroundings of this place is not a parking lot, rather a bird sanctuary. We really appreciated the help of Bob, the caretaker, in advising us of the best use of our time during our stay. The "Must See" vs. "the if you have the...

What more can I say about this beautiful place that hasn't already been said? The grounds are absolutely beautiful with all sorts of birds and humming birds around. The price is right. Three of us stayed in one of the cabins and it came to about $20 each. Bob and Debbie were filling in for the owners, and they were...

Hi All, After reading some reviews and searching places we decided to stay at Cabanas Potosi with the lovely hosts Denis & Mireya. When we arrived we received a tasty mango drink and a warm welcome. Their rooms are clean and tidy and the garden is amazing. This place is located just 10 minutes walk from the city center in...

My wife and I planned to stay in El Valle for a couple nights in August, first found Cabanas Potosi because it was in our price range, however we were so pleasantly surprised when we arrived, pics don't do it justice, it is very clean and has a perfect location, close to downtown but far enough away that u don't...

She also spoke very good English. The property was very clean. The house was nice with...

We've stayed in a cabana with our 1,5 years old boy and we've really enjoyed our stay. The location is beautiful, the garden is really nicely maintained and a safe place for our boy to wander around. The cabana is simpel, but with everything you need including a little fridge. Outside you have your own hammock and two comfortable seats....

Cabanas Potosi is a collection of four cabins located a few minutes by car from the main street of El Valle De Anton. The cabins are very simple, though by no means rustic--a bit like a Holiday Inn from the 1950s. (The rooms have neither TVs nor phones.) But the prices can't be beat, and the owners (a retired American...

My daughter and I stayed four nights recently, while bird watching in panama ( our wonderful guide is the brother of the cabanas owner). I would recommend the cabanas as a quiet and friendly place to stay.

We were greeted when we arrived and given a nice refreshment while the manager explained the layout of the property and gave us a very helpful hand-drawn map of town and the activities. The cabana was clean and comfortable with a small fan (no air con but it isn't needed), a small fridge, an open closet with a shelf, and...

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
