About This Listing
Mariposa Suites is a unique B&B nestled in the mountains of Santa Fe, Veraguas, Panama. We are very private, very comfortable, with beautiful views and manicured gardens. Totally furnished, with a full kitchen, this is your home away from home.
Only minutes from the mountain town of Santa Fe, we are an extremely tranquil property. The only sounds you may here at Mariposa Suites are the birds singing. The climate is a perfect temperature all the time with soft breezes to caress you as you swing in your hammock. Hiking, great birding, river tubing, horseback riding, and more are all available at your doorstep.
Guests have access to the entire 5 acre property.
Interaction with Guests
I can interect with guests as little or as much as guests desire. It is totally their decision.
The Santa Fe area is incredibly safe and secure. Local Panamanians are very respectful, helpful, honest, and welcoming to guests. The views in the Santa Fe area are spectacular, with many rivers and waterfalls to enjoy.
There is ample public transit in this area from commercial taxis to local "chivas", which makes getting around very affordable and fun. Of course, one of the best ways is to walk....Santa Fe is only a short walk from Mariposa Suites. Secure parking is included for guests. Getting to us from the airport in Panama City is easy.....just ask.
Other Things to Note
A 4x4 vehicle is recommended for the Santa Fe area so that you can fully explore all the out-of the-way places and hidden waterfalls easily.
Smoking is allowed on the terraces of the suites and on the grounds. We do not normally allow pets, however, exceptions can be made.....just ask. We do not allow loud music and excessive loud partying, ever.
The location, the views, the room, the hospitality: AMAZING. This is very much off the beaten path, but the drive is beyond worth it. Eat oranges off the trees, bird watch from your porch, make your own nature walk within the grounds, or go beyond the grounds to explore the rolling, wild wilderness.
Kevin was beyond helpful with maps and advice and tips on things to do--and his breakfast fixings really made the whole thing complete. He was always ready to lend a hand and share bits of wisdom about the area.
While the town in quaint and cute, this truly is a place that you can check into and just stay and feel you are having a truly unique, once in a lifetime experience. I can't say enough good things about this place. GO GO GO GO VISIT. NOW.
I stayed at the Casa Mariposa for 3 nights. The Casa Mariposa was peaceful and tranquil. The views were breathtaking and the cabin was clean and equally as beautiful. The pictures do not do this place justice it is a place you need to see for yourself. It is easy to get to town or get groceries if needed. Kevin made me feel at home and was always available with helpful suggestions of things to do, people to meet and places to eat.
I would not hesitate to recommend Casa Mariposa to anyone and I would stay there again. I only regret I couldn't stay longer.
Thank you Kevin for an amazing time.
Mariposa Suites was a delightful place to stay, and well worth the 5 1/2 hour drive from Panama City. Kevin has created a gorgeous setting among the mountains near the picturesque little town of Santa Fe. Our cabina was beautifully and completely furnished with all the amenities, even a daily cleaning service and fresh breakfast each morning. Kevin was a wonderful host! His hand drawn map of the area was very helpful to our explorations! We wanted to find a place that was "off the beaten path" in Panama, and representative of the Panama culture, and we found what we were seeking in Santa Fe.
We had an amazing experience at the Mariposa Suites. The suite itself was beautiful..quiet, clean and spacious, with a view of the hillsides. The location (a few miles from town) was perfect for anyone looking to get away from it all and take in nature. Kevin, the owner, was super helpful with arranging transportation, activities, and even dinner reservations when needed. This lodging gets everything right.. Just the right balance of privacy and personalized attention from the host, lovely breakfasts each morning, and a suite which has all the amenities you need and allows you to feel close to nature.
