Back to the Jungle

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.
