We booked a cabin at Rio Encantado for five hundred dollars for eight nights, this place is a jungle reserve next to a river. From the dental office it was a half hour drive by cab and cost twenty two dollars each way. The owner of this place Frank is a Pre Colombian Art dealer from seattle. August is the rainy season in Panama and so the prices are lower then. I cant say enough good things about Rio Encantado it is heaven on earth so peaceful and there were no other guests staying there for most of the time we were there which meant we had the awesome swimming pool to ourselves. One more thing I need to mention is that you are in the middle of the jungle next to a crashing river yet there are no mosquitos. Yep, thats right in a rain forest and no mosquitos.
Here is a photo of the giant swimming pool it is built around a huge boulder with a turtle carved into it. and it is so clean that frogs sometimes swim in it.
Heres one of the local frogs chillin' out at the pool.
Front patio of our cabin, these cabins are completely self contained with a kitchen and plenty of hot water so you can stop and buy groceries in David and then live it up like kings in your own jungle hideaway. Here's a link to the website of rio encantado.
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
