I was a little bit anxious when I read some of the reviews, but since we love nature and don't need a luxury place to stay, we said "yes!" to this adventure. And I must say that we didn't regret any minute of it! If you need luxury, don't stay here but of course you will miss the experience of...

What nobody tells you about Burbayar Lodge is that you are essentially sleeping in an open air shed fit only for animals. In fact every animal that can creep, crawl, and fly will be found in your shed, as it is open to the outside environment all around the "so-called walls", and along the ceiling as well. We were never...

We stayed 2 nights and had guided tours of birds and wildlife along the many trails that lead from their property. Very remote and quite primitive, yet comfortable and safe. Food was average, yet tasty (bring wine/beer or request it before you get there). We drove in with a rental car. Beware of steep slippery drive (best to may be...

I am a serious birder (I was hoping for Xernoris and Sapayoa). I expected to be guided by an English speaking guide in a group of other serious birders. The only other people at the lodge were a family of 5 (parents and kids 12-17) The first day the only option provided was going out with them. The second day...

Being a lover of the outdoors, it was an awesome experience for me... We went on a nice hike where we saw Puma, Tapir, and Javeline tracks... I am not much of a bird watcher, but I was even able to catch a glimpse of a very rare bird called a Xonornis, which means nothing to me...but apparently is a...

Our trip to Panama was a multiple stop tour of many areas of the country, Burbayar Lodge is not our first eco resort, so we were expecting limited services and rustic conditions. Jose is the primary guide. Our intention of staying here was birding and adventure hikes. Jose is truly incredible. His knowledge of nature is staggering including the full...

I would recommend Bubayar if you’re seeking solitude, don’t mind basic accommodations and a unique nature experience. Upon arrival at the airport, we were greeted by a transporter arranged by the resort. Unfortunately, we speak very little Spanish and our driver didn’t speak any English so we weren’t able to communicate. After a 1 ½ hour car ride, we were...

I'd like to add to the good reviews of Burbayar. We loved it there. The food was simple but delicious & there was plenty of it. The cabins were comfortable and well appointed for a remote lodge with no hot water & electricity for only an hour or two each evening - note: take a flashlight. Our cabin had a...

“There are no good rooms. HOwever, if you want it quieter during the day, get a shed far from the kitchen where the workers talk and laugh and it can be noisy. However, you may end up by the generator which will deafen you for 3 hours at night while it is turned on.”
