Los Establos Boutique Hotel

, Panama

This small, Spanish-style inn with a stirring view of Volcán Barú started out as a horse stable, hence its name, and each room is named after a horse. Standard rooms are nicely decorated in Spanish villa style with terra-cotta tile flooring and gold satin bedding. They have high, canopy-draped ceilings, wrought-iron lamps, rattan and wooden furniture, and small terraces overlooking the coffee bushes. Double-size suites on the second floor have great views but are much more expensive. The working coffee farm includes five charming cottages, built in the style of old area coffee houses. Rates include beer and wine in the evening. A large gym and spa is open to the public, and there's an all-inclusive adventure package for those who want to experience local activities.
