Why David M Fishlow chose Volcán
Located in the most beautiful province of Panamá, we have spent more than 25 years developing our gardens, mature wooded area, green pastures and our small avocado orchard is developing quickly.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are only 3 km from the center of Volcán, on a well-paved road, but surrounded by hills that makes our little retreat feel a thousand miles from nowhere. The only noise: our rooster wakes up early, and the dogs do chase squirrels.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Just what the doctor ordered. My self doctoring prescribed time at a place where I could reflex on my priorities in life. Very enjoyable. David was engaging when asked to be and unobtrusive when that was needed. The fact that he is a kind and caring person become very apparent and evident as the stay progressed. A wonderful change from the ordinary lodging being offered. Need I saw more!
Experience true Panama tranquility
This is a ranch style home, a duplex with your apartment on one side and the owner on the other. Your host, David, built this home as a working farm starting about 27 years ago. It has been beautifully landscaped and provides a great place to unwind. The town of Volcan is only a few minutes away but you are surrounded by pastures and hills. This is a great place for those with a few small children. Lots of room to explore. David himself is a wealth of information about the area, is multi-lingual and is very helpful to suggest points of interest. He’s also attentive to any needs that may arise. This is not a resort type property but a true Panamanian experience. If you want to experience the real Panama in a relaxing and peaceful setting, I’d recommend it highly.
We thoroughly enjoyed your stay and hope you will return. Alas, it will be 4 years-plus before we have another Quinceañera in the family. The one you missed was pretty nice!
Fabulous stay at Altozano Farm
The highlight of our trip to Panama was staying at David's beautiful farm (finca) in Volcan! We loved staying here because we were made to feel at home by the friendly host and his lovely extended family! His home is comfortable with amenities ie, TV and Wifi. David who is bilingual, gave us great recommendations on restaurants, Janson's coffee farm, and buying fresh fruit, and interesting sites in the area, and directions to the Costa Rican border. His farm is a great place to bird watch, star gaze, and to sit on the outdoor porch and just chill. We can't thank him enough -His dogs were wonderful also! We highly recommend this place for an authentic Panama experience in a magnificent setting with a great host!
Glad you enjoyed your stay, here at El Altozano and in the surrounding area. Showing you around was a great pleasuew.
