Los Quetzales Lodge & Spa

Guadalupe, , Panama

You'll find accommodations at this eco-lodge ranging from backpacker dorms and tents to two-bedroom suites and private cabins in the cloud forest. Rooms in wooden buildings have polished hardwood, photos of local birds, and original art. Standard rooms are slightly dark and cramped, but junior suites are spacious and bright, with wood stoves and kitchenettes; larger master suites also have balconies. Suites #16 and 17 have the most character and the best views. At night guests gather in the lounge with wood stoves, couches, and computers. The restaurant ($–$$) serves good pizza, pastas, soups, fresh trout, and organic salads. Breakfasts are as fresh as they come, with homemade butter, cheese, granola, and breads. A gym, spa, bicycles, and horseback riding are available; jeeps transport guests to the reserve each morning for guided hikes. Cabins #8 and 9 in the reserve lack electricity but have gas stoves and lanterns. They recently added cabins near the hot springs.
