Volcan Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
This property is located in a rural setting surrounded by spectacular mountain scenery, waterfalls, and beautiful tropical gardens. Cuesta de Piedra is a quiet pueblo where our electric bill is delivered on horseback and milk trucks pick up 10 gallon milk tanks left next to the local farmer's gates. International bird watching tours set up on the road to view the many birds found on and around our property. One of our recent guests spotted 87 species of birds just on our property (see complete list below). We are within easy walking distance of the hydro-electric dam and the drive to La Amistad and Volcan Baru National Parks is less than an hour.
Our guest suite is private, secure, and well appointed. Enter on the second level into a large living/dining/kitchen area. This level features a full self-catering kitchen, a full bath room, dining for four with a day bed that converts to a king or two twin beds.
The private balcony looks out onto a river valley headed by Volcan Baru, a beautiful 11,000+ foot tall volcano and the highest point in Panama. There is a custom built spiral stair that takes you down to a bedroom with queen bed, full bath room, and a private deck. There is a gated entry and covered parking for one vehicle.

About The Owner
We moved to this area in 2006 from the mountains of Western Colorado and now share it with our two dogs and two cats, as well as a myriad of resident birds. We spend time gardening, socializing with other gringos in the area, hiking, biking and beach combing and boogie boarding at nearby Playa la Barqueta (and, of course, feeding the birds).
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2006
Why The Owner chose Volcan
We purchased in this location because of it's proximity to outdoor activities here in Cuesta de Piedra as well as the nearby rainforests and beaches. It's a temperate climate that is warm during the day and cool enough to need a light blanket for sleeping at night.
What makes this apartment unique
We are fortunate to have mostly cows for neighbors and incredible bird watching every day. Our Panamanian neighbors are friendly and this area is clean and well maintained.
