My husband and I traveled to Panama for my 50th birthday. We spent 4 nights at Popa Paradise and we wish we would have spent all 10 nights there. What a beautiful place! Before our trip I emailed the hotel because I had a lot of questions. Every email was answered promptly and they provided all the information I needed....

Everything at Popa was fabulous. Our casita was beautiful, Cindy prepared delicious meals for us, and Bernard and Nico took great care of us. There were several options for things to do, truly an all-inclusive. Highly recommend Popa.

My friend and I went to Popa Paradise for a week to enjoy some time off and relax in a Caribbean atmosphere. When we arrived, we found out that - due to very low season - we were actually the only people at the resort! This turned out to be a very lucky coincidence, as this way we could enjoy...

This was the best vacation, the property was beautiful, the service was top notch and the food was amazing. We enjoyed the lazy days by the pool and the feeling of being disconnected from the real world. You can do as much or as little as you like. Staff anticipated any needs we had and were there to serve us.
