It’s been five years now that our great friends Steve and Karen have managed the lodge whilst Henry, Lucho and I head off for our ‘summer’ sojourn in the UK. We’re always thrilled to get back to the jungle and happier still to find that La Loma has always flourished in Steve and Karen’s hands. A huge thank you to Estif who never drops the ice and Karen la bailarina.
We detoured a bit on our way back to Bocas this year and took a little mountain air before descending into the Caribbean lowlands. Two glorious nights at the inimitable Coffee Estate Inn in Boquete, a fabulous lunch at Mango, Craig and Maureen Miller’s new Boquete restaurant and a stop at the awesome Refugio La Brisa del Diablo B&B perched on the spine of the continental divide, sent us rolling down the mountains, revived and ready for an exciting season here at La Loma. For those of you planning on spending some time on the ‘otro lado’ whilst in Panama, don’t miss these places, they’re the best.
