After participating in the ocean-to-ocean cayuco race we needed a cool, friendly place in the mountains to relax and chill before moving on to Pedasí and Chiriquí. Cabañas Potosí is amazing and wonderfully managed by the owners. The cabañas have been in business for more than 40 years and the property has been in the family for generations and it...

The owners, Dennis and Mireya, are such kind, caring people. They helped me to see a doctor in Coronado when I had an unknown and very painful medical issue. Their oasis aided me further in healing. Our two night stay turned into a week and we stayed another three nights a few days later- we are calling this our home...

Our hosts Dennis and Mireya were superb both friendly and helpful. If you yearner the beauty of nature and a peaceful relaxing environment. A hammock outside one of their cabins is the place to be hummingbirds hovering over bottlebrush flowers and countless birds moving through and over the garden. All in an exquisitely lush part of Panama. A place nurtured...

Recommended by fellow travelers, who also happen to be birders. Potosi has 4 cabañas. Basic, clean, comfortable rooms. Equipped with a coffee maker and a little fridge which is great as there isn't a close by fonda (eatery) or tienda (store) for the quick late night beverage or snack. Though the town with restaurants, markets, open air farmer's market, and...

It's a great place to stay, the cabins are surrounded by wonderful garden full of trees and flowers. Bird feeding takes place twice a day and you can spot many colorful birds feasting few feet away - great for pictures. The main town center is about 10 minutes away on foot. Dennis and Mireya are wonderful and kind hosts.

This place is incredibly beautiful and our hosts are just incredible. We enjoyed three days at this lovely eco friendly cabana in El Valle. One of the things that is great about Cabanas Potasi is it is very convenient to town and the fine restaurants. It is also an easy drive to the beaches. This is a wonderful property.

Great location - walkable to center but much quieter, and parklike grounds Owners extremely helpful and friendly. Provide a free map with all local sites and trails located. Offer $1 "taxi" ride to local area. Free pickup at bus stop in town center. Good wifi on patio near office.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cabanas Potosi is located in the second largest shield volcanic crater in the world. The cabins are family owned and offers bird guided tours with one of Panama's best bird guides, Mario Bernal. The valley sits at 3,000 (1,000 Meters) above sea level and is the home of over 300 species of birds plus migratory birds during October and March. Many family owned restaurants are located with walking distance of the cabins. You can get to El Valle by traveling by bus on the Pan-American Highway from Panama City, Panama. The trip takes about two hours of which the last 18 miles (30 Kilometers) offers beautiful view of the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Come and visit us soon and wake up to a symphony of birds every morning. ... more   less
