Park Eden is a rustic guesthouse in the mountain town El Valle, a good base for exploring the forest paths and waterfalls of the picturesque region.

Situated in any easy to find location on the main road just outside the town of Chitre, this is a low-rise hotel set in a couple of pretty gardens one of which features a lovely outdoor pool.

The building is modelled on the traditional tawny coloured rustic houses of this rural region, with red-tiled and thatched roofs. There's even a chapel in the grounds. Staff are enthusiastic, helpful and very proud of the region and their historic traditions.

The property has the facilities of a resort but is small enough to feel welcoming and homely. The guest rooms, where the décor is a little dated perhaps, have excellent amenities.

There's free parking for guests, a gym with good equipment and the odd exercise class, a bar serving the usual array of cocktails, a restaurant with an excellent menu and a tours desk where you can book excursions and activities. It’s worth popping into town too: there’s a compact colonial centre and a very interesting little museum featuring the indigenous heritage on the region, including decorated masks.

What our clients say

  • Each part of my trip had a special moment. I loved both the new and old parts of Panama city, but my highlight there was seeing sloths while walking up Cerro Ancon. In Bocas del Toro it was being the only person there on a stunning beach. The best moment though has to be staying at the Canopy Tower and experiencing the wildlife. I'll never forget the sound of the Howler monkeys.

  • Because of my interest in shipping, the Panama Canal partial transit was fascinating. 

    JB
  • We didn't realise the partial canal transit would be in such a big boat with loads of other tourists - not a problem, but would have been good for this to be pointed out in advance.

    NF, Tunbridge Wells
  • Most memorable experience: “Tranquillo bay was a cut above everything else.   Staying on Waidup (near Isla Tigre) was also special.”

    MH, Chiswick
  • "Most memorable was watching mother and baby two-toed sloths from bedroom window at Canopy Tower. Early morning on the roof of Canopy Tower listening to howler monkeys as the sun rises over the forest.”

    NW, Kidlington
  • Top experiences in Panama - going through the canal and exploring Panama City and surrounding area. I was surprised to find that Panama is not just the Canal Zone!
