We rented the apartment for one night and upon arrival. We got lucky and the sloths were awake so we got to catch a glimpse of them! It was a once and a lifetime experience to be up close and see the little guys. They have a really sweet lab that is very welcoming and likes attention too. :) The...

We stopped in El Valle and spent the first days of our 10 day trip in Panama at Casa Mariposa. The rooms are quite simple but convenient and comfy. We’re not sure which are our preferred hosts between Ursula or Samie and Dahabie, but they all made us welcomed in their little retreat. What a peaceful treat to spend time...

We spent the first two days( February 13-15th) of our first trip to Panama in El Valle at Casa Mariposa and we couldn't believe the magic of this place! Watching the sloths brought me to tears and our hosts were the loveliest people. Thank you for creating such a beautiful space and for all that you do for the Sloths.

We didn't stay here, but still must rave about thier hospitality. After a tip off from our Hostel (Windmill) we were lucky enough to be invited to see their orphaned sloth family. Not just anyone can visit the sloths- they are shy and have had a rough life, but we were granted the opportunity to feed and touch them. We...

The owner is very sweet and the appartment was spotless. Nice little guarden, her husband made us sample a few herbs, but the highlight by far were the rescued sloths! So cute, soft and cuddly! They have a three week old baby sloth which is adorable. We were lucky enough to see them awake three times and I even held...

The gardens are spectacular! There are multiple places to sit (or lay in a hammock) and enjoy the outdoors. Ursula was very helpful in making recommendations for restaurants and hiking. The sloths including the baby made it a highlight of the trip!

We had planned to spend only one night in the guest room but changed our minds as soon as we arrived to stay an extra night. The hosts made us feel right at home. The room met our needs and was very clean. The bed and pillows were not the most comfortable, however. Take earplugs if hearing the chickens and...

The owners, Ursula and Harry, are the friendliest people you'll find, They make you feel super welcome. We've stayed here various times and it always exceeds our expectations. The rooms are spacious, clean, with comfortable beds. You are even provided with earplugs in case the noise of the neighbour's rooster causes you trouble. There is a fridge available, you are...

From the sloths they rescue, to the cleanliness and spaciousness of the guesthouse, to the rooftop hammocks and patio...Casa Mariposa was more than we could have expected. The owners are so kind, accommodating, and such wonderful people. Their B&B is centrally located and the rooftop has an amazing view. Not to mention the fact that you get to interact with...
