Visited this Super cool vibes, great concept for sustainable projects with a friend and our dogs. Everyone was super friendly (staff and other guests) They have a great river, great hike. Nice food. cool "town square" activities. Rock on!
I had an amazing time at Kalu Yala, this is a very beautiful place next to an incredibly preserves river in the jungle. Alejandrina, Jorge and all the staff are very caring people. Do not hesitate to go, this place is a gem!
Please be very careful. They canceled the program we paid for, promised a full refund but now will not reply to emails. They owe us $3750 and I have heard from many people in the same situation. They say that they are ethical, but it is a SCAM.
This place felt like a home away from home instantly. Everyone was so welcoming right away and we made friendships that will last forever. The food was great and so was the campfire at night. The chickens, dogs and cats make the experience even better. There is a lot to do all around there and tours you can take. I did the Jaguar Falls hike and it was beautiful!! They are so accommodating and want you to have the best experience. I can’t wait to come back and thank you for everything!!
We booked 1 week for 3 person and paid all inclusive $770. Upon arrival we were shocked. The place is completely neglected. None of the free activities like Yoga, painting, etc were available, everything else was super expensive and a scam. The food was actually the worst we had aver seen (see pictures) and super little. Gabage and neglected construction material all over the place. Buildings and sport areas are in complete disrepair. Mosquito nets had the big holes. Internet was super slow and is just available at the bar. No electricity at night. The manager started drinking beer at 9 am and that's how the entire place is managed. Outrageous. We left after 3 days and are still waiting for the promised refund.
You must visit this incredible peacefull and sustainable place ! Hike, nigth trip with a biologist to see animals, great people protecting our planet, it is a nice experience to live. Not far away from panama city it is really easy to go there. Just visit them you will enjoy so much
I feel the positive energy around Kalu Yala the first I get into it. I have enjoyed staying between nature listening to all-natural sounds. The personal staff, rooms and place itself are fabulous. I would back again!
The absolutely perfect get away! A chilling place to relax and enjoy the nature. The lovely staff makes you feel like home. Zoe and Jimmy are amazing and welcoming. The food is great and you can enjoy some good drinks at the bar 💜
KALU YALA - WHAT an awesome place! Ok first of all if you are looking to get out of the city away from the crowds this is the place to be! I personally was going through an emotional journey before knowing Kalu Yala and I Can just say that I am so happy I was able to find peace and relaxation after all this personal journey in Kalu yala. First of all If you are an spiritual I would 100% RECOMMEND spent at least 2-3 nights there, such a great vibe a lot of outdoors activities and amazing views of a very virgin/Jungle unique side of Panama!!! Best part is that it’s SO CLOSE to the city just 2 hours away and the whole experience is just amazing Kudos to the amazing and lovely staff , after my stay I couldn’t help but to tell everyone I knew to have the experience that I had there! Congrats Jimmy and Zoe you guys are amazing amazing and your work there it’s proof of that!!! I’ll sure be back!!! Btw if you do the waterfall trail In the morning you will just FALL IN LOVE with the dogs they will literally take care of you And also there’s an AWESOME interaction with the monkeys in the trail - ask the staff for details ❤️🤗…
Really awesome place to unwind from modern life. Try to stay disconnected from the Wi-Fi and talk to people, and you will meet some awesome friends. The staff and their pets are really cool. Great food. Plenty of wild life but nothing dangerous.
