Enjoy the cool mountains of Panama at our hillside paradise. Our comfortable guest room has a private bath and direct access to the large terrace, pool and gardens. Go for a hike along the many trails here and return for a cool dip in the pool.
Room with a comfy queen size bed and private bath with shower. French doors open to the large terrace with sweeping views of the Altos del Maria valley and the Pacific ocean beyond. The property has a large garden with walking trails and vista points. Come for a night or two to enjoy the natural beauty of the mountains of Panama. The room has an ethernet outlet and wifi is available on the terrace. Altos del Maria is a gated community in the mountains west of Panama City. There are walking trails throughout the valley, one that follows the river for a few miles, another that offers views to the Pacific and the Caribbean. Enjoy a swim in the infinity pool after a day of hiking. Birds abound in this area. We are visited by toucans, oropendulas, split-tailed motmots, tanagers and orioles to name just a few. Pacific beaches and more restaurants are a 30-minute drive away. Yoga classes available Monday through Friday at the Activity Center. Private yoga classes are also available here on the terrace.
A continental breakfast is included. There is a nice restaurant as well as a few basic restaurants nearby in Sora. Or you may enjoy dinner with us for $15/person. Please book meals ahead of your arrival.
Altos del Maria is located in the mountains 90 kilometers west of Panama City. It's an easy hour drive on the Interamericana Highway, then another 30 minutes on a two-lane road to Altos del Maria. All the roads are paved and in good condition.
Guests have access to the guest room and terrace, pool and garden. There may be room in the refrigerator for some personal food items, but the kitchen is my kingdom and off limits.
Interaction with Guests
I like to chat with my guests at breakfast if I'm home, but weekday mornings I'm teaching a yoga class. If you book dinner, then you will be eating with us. We love to talk about Panama and all the great things to do and see.
Our neighborhood is very safe. Altos del Maria covers 6000 hectares, so there are lots of microclimates with many varieties of plants and animals. There are lots of hiking trails, swimming holes, fresh air and amazing views.
For the most freedom, it's best to rent a car and have your own wheels to get around. It's also possible to get here via public transportation. Only truck taxis that carry people from the nearby villages are allowed in Altos. Yellow cabs are not allowed. Within Altos, it's possible to hitch a ride, we are a friendly and helpful community.

Please let us know what time you plan to arrive and if you would like any meals other than the continental breakfast that is included.

I love hosting interesting people in my home in Altos del Maria, Panama. I'm a yoga teacher. My day revolves around yoga, cooking, knitting and crosswords. I love going to yoga retreats and workshops to improve my teaching skills. I enjoy traveling with my girlfriends. We like to rent a house somewhere and stay for a week to get to know the area.
