The family that owns Casa Mariposa is amazing. They are friendly and welcoming. We loved being able to sit in the courtyard and enjoying the relaxing beauty or if we were lucky enough, we could observe the sloths playing. We were so very lucky to be able to feed the sloths and enjoys some time with these gentle beauties.

Although I've been to El Valle many times before (and love it) this was the first time we stayed at Casa Mariposa -- and we're so glad we did! It's conveniently located on the main road in town and within walking distance to everything -- but just inside the hotel's tall gate, you'll find another world, complete with a beautiful... More

This B&B is owned by a Swiss/Columbian couple who have dedicated their lifes to the rescue of sloths. They have 3 sloths that permanently live on the really beautiful property. The rooms are really good value for money and very clean. The rooftop terrace is really beautiful with nice couches and a great view in all directions of the volcano... More

Very nice. You really feel you are in Panamá. The owner is so accommodating, treated us so well. Walking distance to restaurants and stores. Made a found memory. Would stay there again. Plus: owner raises rescued sloths - fascinating!

There are two rooms available in the garden of a private home. It is located on the main road, which is very convenient to buses, stores, restaurants, etc. yet very quiet because the rooms are set back in the garden and El Valle isn’t exactly a bustling metropolis anyway. The bus from PC dropped us off near the house, and... More

We drove our rent-a-car into the front gate and we had a convenient and safe place to park. Then we began a unique experience.

We stayed at Casa Mariposa for 3 nights after coming by local bus from Panama City. What a welcome respite after the steamy heat of the city. The temperatures were much cooler and there is a non-stop breeze. Our room was lovely with a little terrace outside and comfortable chairs to sit in. The property is beautiful with birds flitting...

A short drive from the steamy coastline of Playa Coronado brings you to the fresh climate of El Valle and the ancient volcanic crater that’s become the home of many wealthy Panamanians who like to escape from the heat of the city to the tranquility of the mountains. El Valle is a small town with a local vibe that means... More

“There are 2 rooms for $55 each that are very similar, spacious, hot water, private bathrooms, etc. Those are great! There is also a bike shed that can double as a room with two beds in it. We didn't stay there, but it looked clean all things considered, although no bathroom in that building. There is also an apartment, but we didn't see that”
