Casa Calatéas is a spacious, attractive ecolodge in the lush hills above Cahuita National Park. Their observation platform has a stunning view of the Talamanca mountain range that extends into Panamá.

Casa Calatéas is in the village of Carbón Dos, a pristine rural community that cares about conservation. Hike in their 60-hectare rainforest reserve, or visit Don Ramón's cacao farm. Local ladies prepare delicious meals for guests, and will teach you how to make the sublime blend of coconut milk and seafood known as rondón.

It's easy to enjoy the beaches and wildlife of Cahuita National Park or Puerto Viejo de Talamanca when you are based at Casa Calatéas, if you have your own transportation. It's also just a few kilometers south of the Sloth Sanctuary.

Getting there

To get to Casa Calatéas, drive 7 kilometers past Cahuita to the Comadre bus stop. Turn right and drive 4 kilometers uphill. Four wheel drive is necessary. Rooms have private baths with heated water.

What our travelers are saying

Casa Calateas was special. They really made us feel welcome and they were especially wonderful with our son. We really enjoyed our outings and our guide. We felt like we got a bit of an adventure but were always well taken care of.
