Finca Lerida is a prestigious coffee estate on the skirts of Panama's Baru volcano, with cosy guest rooms  and restaurant welcoming visitors. Birding and coffee tours available. 

Finca Lerida is a gorgeous coffee estate embedded in the rolling green Chiriqui hills of Panama’s fertile interior, carpeting the skirts of Barú volcano. Conceived and founded by a Norwegian family about 100 years ago, the plantation and its Scandanavian countryside-style house and guest accommodation welcome visitors to explore its private cloud forest, criss-crossed with bird-watching trails where the resplendent quetzal and other exotic species are frequently spotted.

Light and airy guest rooms are set in one-story blocks, each with its own terrace and hammock where you can peacefully watch birds and butterflies flitting around the many floral displays.  There’s a gastro-pub, with open log fire creating a cosy atmosphere on cool evenings, and a modern restaurant which also offers al fresco dining. The property offers various excursions such as coffee tours and bird-watching, while the cafeteria sells the plantation’s coffee to be savoured alongside homemade cakes.

What our clients say

  • Highlights: “Locks on the Panama canal and Panamax vessels up close.”

    MC, Fulham
  • Panama was far more interesting than what we thought it would be, particularly the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Bio Diversity Museum.

    CY, Heathfield
  • We enjoyed all locations which were very diverse and equally memorable. 

    IB, Chesterfield
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Too hard to choose one. Panama Canal Transit was a lifelong ambition.

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

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