Los Quetzales EcoLodge & Spa

a destination apart…

Los Quetzales Ecolodge & Spa

Tucked away in the highland cloud forest, Los Quetzales EcoLodge & Spa is ideal for those longing to retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern living. At 7260 feet above sea level (2,200 meters), the reserve has the highest lodging facilities in the country. We are located near the 407,000 acre Parque Internacional La Amistad, straddling Costa Rica and Panama. Our 400 hectare reserve has been protected by the private efforts of its founders since 1970. 

Celebrating our 30th year welcoming guests! 


It is our privilege to be one of the only eco-vacation resorts in Panama or Costa Rica that offers overnight accommodations inside a national park. Our climate varies from 75 degrees F (23 degrees C) during a sunny day to 45 degrees F (7 degrees C) on our chilliest winter night. And, our visitors really love exploring our unique micro climate, which boasts NO biting insects – no mosquitoes, no chiggers, not even a stray no-see-um! Fortunately, our area also lacks venomous snake species so it’s ideal for adventurers and families looking for a tranquil spot to get back to nature and enjoy our recognized, warm hospitality. We welcome you to visit your home away from home!

Pamper yourself Next to the river

Enjoy our exclusive 2-hour scrub, cacao wrap and massage, or rejuvenate your feet after a full day of walking with a 30-minute reflexology foot massage. Perhaps you’ll want a facial to rehydrate your skin after three days in the sun in Bocas del Toro. Complement your spa experience with an hour in our aromatherapy sauna (rosemary or eucalyptus) or relaxing in our outdoor jacuzzi. We use all natural ingredients like oatmeal, pineapple, honey, almond oil, sugar, chocolate, mud from Volcán Baru, roses, eucalyptus and other herbs from our garden.
