We stayed three nights in the apartment. It is spacious and equipped for all your needs. The apartments proximity to the road is noisy. The rooms are further back and would be quieter. The market is a short walk away for fresh produce and there are many grocery stores nearby as well. The owners Ursula and Harry are onsite and... More

Spending time at Casa Mariposa is like having the best kind of therapy. Set in beautiful gardens, with birds chirping away, you could easily spend a day just sitting there. It is even more fantastic that you may get to meet some rescued sloths. Ursula and her husband couldn't have been more helpful. Breakfast is highly recommended.

My wife and I stayed at Casa Mariposa in August and September, 2015 as the first stage of retiring in El Valle.

Sloths make it totally worth it! Nothing better than a sloth hug before you go. Rooms are basic but comfortable. You get coffee in the room and garden time with sloths daily. Nice garden and upstairs hammock area. Located on the main road

We arrived in El Valle in the early evening without having made any prior bookings for accommodation as we are presently doing a driving holiday through Panama. In spite of calling Ursula around 8pm she was friendly and helpful and we enjoyed a very pleasant stay. Facilities are excellent and spotlessly clean. Recommend it to anyone without reservation.

The apartment was perfect for our family. Our young boys were delighted to help care for the sloths - such a good learning experience for them that they will never forget. The apartment was clean, roomy and quiet. Perfect.

“There are 2 rooms for $55 each that are very similar, spacious, hot water, private bathrooms, etc. Those are great! There is also a bike shed that can double as a room with two beds in it. We didn't stay there, but it looked clean all things considered, although no bathroom in that building. There is also an apartment, but we didn't see that”
