I stayed here during a school trip and all I can say is wow! The location is absolutely stunning! The backyard overlooks a valley, and the views are beautiful. There are tons of beautiful flowers and fruit trees. The air is so clean and fresh! I loved sitting in the hammocks outside and reading. There are several hiking trails located...

We just had our 8th stay at this wonderful Lodge in Chama. This is where my husband and I go to get away from it all and spend time alone. La Chica de Joya is a hidden gem that you need to experience when in Panama. The Lodge has a beautiful pool and manicured gardens. The grounds are eye candy...

Our stay at La Joya de Chica was excellent! It was by far our favorite place to visit on our trip to Panama. Phil, the gracious owner, was very accommodating to our family of five (including 3 very active boys.) The property has a great mix of relaxation (i.e the pool and star gazing) as well as activity. You don't...

Spent a wonderful day at La Joya de Chica Mountain Resort relaxing with friends and just chilling with nature. This is the true "get away" place in Panama. Had a wonderful brunch and chatted with our friends in this beautiful place. Nothing like sitting outside surrounded by the rain forest

Chica is a wonderful small mountain town; not a built up touristy place, thank goodness. It is near the wonderful Campana National Forest which should be mentioned more often for Panama as it has may different hiking trails. This bed and breakfast is a quiet, calm, breezey soul-relaxing experience. Phil, the owner has done such a magnificent job of landscaping;...

“Both rooms are comfortable.”

“There are only two rooms available, and the only difference is the number of beds in each one: One room has a queen bed; the other one has two double beds. Both are equally nice and comfy, so the only criteria you need for choosing your room is how many people you're coming with.”

“"for the most part" much was still under construction. But guaranteed, no matter where you sleep you will hear toucans and no traffic. Sleep Quality does not apply. We spent a day trip there. Service was excellent, everything was clean, and with those mountains "who needs a Fitness Centre"”
