Why Dirk Albert de Veer chose Bugaba

Because of its pleasant and secure environment, not to warm and humid and above all with a beautiful nature and nice people we started living in Paso Ancho in 2001. The holiday homes have been created during a number of years.

                                                                  Dietmar W.

                                                                  The description of the holiday home on VRBO we lived in five weeks fits exactly to the experienced reality - quiet & romantic. Also our three girls with ages between 16 and 2 years felt well from the very beginning of our stay in Paso Ancho. Surrounded only by the jungle and the wild waters of the Rio Chiriqui Vejo and far away from any human noise we did find perfect conditions to relax in a spacious and nice furnished house. The owner and host is a very attentive man who offers quick support whenever it could be necessary.

                                                                  Beautiful retreat

                                                                  IngridWe2Winnipeg, Manitoba

                                                                  This is a quiet beautiful place with a wonderful host. The location is amazing and we spent hours sitting on the patio taking in the beauty of the area. Thank you Dirk for making our stay memorable.

                                                                  Quiet and Peaceful

                                                                  ginny b.

                                                                  We had a wonderful 3 month stay at Las Plumas. We stayed in Quetzal and everything was clean and in good condition. We were very comfortable there and our guests also enjoyed it! My favorite thing was sitting on the patio and enjoying the beautiful property: flower, trees, clouds and LOTS of birds! It is very private and secure. We did have a few issues with hot water and wi-fi but Dirk fixed everything in a timely manner. My only complaint would be the road leading up to the property. It is very rough (rocks, holes...) but that is out of his control. We eventually rented a small SUV that had more ground clearance and that worked fine. Dirk helped us with restaurant suggestions and sights in the area. We would definitely return!!!


                                                                  David and Hiam M.Carrollton, TX

                                                                  This was our first trip to Panama and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. We spent the month of February in the hawk house and absolutely loved it. The view is gorgeous! All you hear is the rushing water from the river below, the rustling of leaves and the birds chirping! It's a place to enjoy nature and be away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

                                                                  We did lots of hiking! The temperature during the day was in the mid to high 70's so being outside was very pleasant. It cools down at night so make sure you get some warm clothes with you. Layering works great. I missed my throw blanket!

                                                                  Dirk was a pleasure to meet and visit with. He was very responsive and more than happy to answer any questions we had.

                                                                  If you want to meet some expats, head to Deep Forest Taberna up the road. They gather there every Saturday afternoon for singing, eating and visiting. And breakfast every Friday at Manas restaurant.

                                                                  Also keep in mind, there are no street signs. It could be tricky finding the place, or any place for that matter. Thank God for google maps. We followed the voice prompts to get everywhere we needed to go.

                                                                  And just few days before we left, we sighted the white faced monkeys swinging in the trees in the mountain across. That was very exciting!!

                                                                  We highly recommend Las Plumas and we will for sure plan another trip there.


                                                                  Excelente lugar, nos quedamos 3 noches y 4 días, es acogedor como si estuvieras en tu propia casa. Si lo que buscas es tranquilidad es el lugar indicado. Lo que nos gustó fue el clima fresco muy fresco, el despertar con el canto de los pájaros y el sonido del río.

                                                                  Gracias Sr. Dirk por su amabilidad. Dios lo bendiga.

                                                                  Beautiful and peaceful setting, with everything you need to be comfortable

                                                                  Jane O.Bracebridge, ON Canada

                                                                  We were at Tanager for two weeks. Were planning to stay for 7 months, but had to leave for personal reasons. The birds in the trees were what greeted us first, wonderful. Then Yaneth who showed us everything. Then Dirk who arrived to make sure we were comfortable. It is an astounding place with everything needed to be comfortable. Good internet, hot water, laundry facilities, private but within a few minutes (walking) of a small supermarket, and 10 minutes drive to the town. Close to Finca Dracula - the orchid farm - beautiful. Many wonderful walking and driving areas. Brilliant for photographers, bird-watchers and walkers. Thank you for everything, Dirk!
