Los Quetzales Lodge, Chiriqui Highlands, Panama
Los Quetzales Lodge is a rustic yet cosy and welcoming mountain lodge in the tiny farming village of Guadalupe which is just next to Cerro Punta. It has a quirky appeal and character thanks to its slightly ramshackle appearance and layout.
The accommodation ranges from shared dormitories to small but cosy standard rooms to simple but spacious duplex's and suites which are located in four Swiss style mountain chalets set through the lodge's grounds. Hearty meals are served (usually as a buffet) in the spacious restaurant which is next to the games room, reading and lounge area which has comfortable sofas and roaring fireplaces.
Although a simple property there is a surprising range of facilities including a spa with four hot tubs, a jacuzzi and a sauna. Numerous hiking trails run throughout the surrounding 400 hectares of pristine cloud forest and rain coats, rubber boots and warm sweaters are all provided. Horse riding, mountain biking and bird watching can also be arranged.
