The Balboa Heights: your jungle escape in Panama City
Your jungle escape in Panama City
The B&B is located in Balboa, a beautiful quiet neighbourhood of the Canal Zone. The house is a typical wooden house built by the Americans when they still governed the Canal. The atmosphere of the house immediately gives you a tropical holiday feeling. The impressive garden, at the foot of a hill, is home to many birds and animals. It is very likely that agoutis, deers, monkeys, tucans, hummingbirds wake you up with all of their different sounds. At night you will fall asleep with the cricket choir.
Two spacious air-conditioned bedrooms with a shared large colonial style bathroom are located at the ground floor, where breakfast is being served in the porch. You can zip your morning coffee or enjoy your glass of wine in the evening on the terrace in the garden. Your hosts live upstairs, therefore the ground floor is yours.
The location is great
A 15 minute walk takes you up to the Canal and Amador Causeway. A 10 minute drive will bring you to the Miraflores Locks where you can learn all about the history of the incredible Panama Canal its locks. The amazing old romantic city, Casco Viejo, is also very close by. The Puente de las Americas (the bridge connecting the two Americas), the Albrook airport and the national bus terminal are only minutes away, so the Balboa Heights B&B is a great place to start or end your holiday in Panama.
The hosts are kind
Your hosts are Marijke van Hoogdalem and her husband who live upstairs, while you enjoy your private space downstairs. They are a young couple from The Netherlands that decided to move to Panama early 2011, to seek adventure, to work and to absorb new cultures. In the mean time they have gotten two little girls here in Panama.
Marijke, her husband and their daughters will grant you a warm stay and are more than happy to share their home with you while you are getting to know Panama City and around.
