Lately we've been seeing more and more animals on or around the Coconut Lodge property. Here is a picture of a sloth that was spotted near the tennis court of our B&B on December 11th 2013. This is not the first time that sloths visit our lodge but it definitely is a rare and precious occurence! We are so happy that we were able to capture the moment with a picture.
Another animal that can be seen quite frequently at the lodge is the Geoffroy's Tamarin monkey. A large family of tamarin monkeys actually lives on the lot next to our Panama Bed and Breakfast. Look for them near the bamboo trees! This one was spotted on December 12th.
However, the "frequent flyers" (pun intended) are definitely the birds. Hummingbirds are pretty much a constant presence at Coconut Lodge Panama. Toucans can be heard very frequently and seen almost as often. (Listen for the frog-like croak). This toucan was spotted from the garden view room of our Panama Bed & Breakfast (Coral Sereno).
The great thing about Panama is that, even though Coconut Lodge is located in Las Cumbres (the northern limit of Panama City), we are still able to see tropical animals and birds quite often.
If you are an animal lover (and have a little bit of luck on your side), you just might see your first sloth, monkey or toucan at our Panama City Bed and Breakfast!
Our pool has always been one of the best features of our Panama Bed & Breakfast. However, after the years started to take their toll on our mosaic tiles, we decided to give it a complete makeover. We thought you might enjoy seeing a few pictures of the renovation process as well as a few pictures of the finished pool. Enjoy!

A few days ago, we woke up to the news that, for the second year in a row, we won the 2013 Certificate of Excellence! This marks our third Trip Advisor award and we are continually humbled by all the displays of support that we have received.
We are a small family business (Mike cooks, Nancy handles reservations and Melissa handles the marketing) that only opened shop in November 2011... After only 18 months of inauguration, our family has grown to include all the guests who have honored us by choosing to stay with us! As always, this award is for you!

Last week, we received excellent news from TripAdvisor. Only 14 months after opening, we found out that not only were we awarded the prestigious "Travelers' Choice Award 2013" by the Trip Advisor community... We have also ranked as the No. 1 B&B in all of Panama (out of 260 B&Bs) and the No. 6 B&B in all of Central America (Out of 1900)!
Words cannot begin to describe how happy we feel right now. As always, we owe it to our guests who honor us by choosing Coconut Lodge Panama during their stay in Panama. If someone had predicted these awards sometime last year, we would have laughed ourselves silly!
A Bed & Breakfast is nothing without its guests... Past, present & future guests: we consider you family. This award is for you.
