Villa Paula was the perfect place to spend the night after we crossed into Panama in the afternoon. Kathy and Norm are great hosts and even offered to make us breakfast in the morning. There is plenty of room to camp for any type of rig, and there is a clean bathroom with a toilet and shower. We contacted Kathy on WhatsApp at +507 6448-5620 and Norm at +507 6688-5901.

Staying at Katty and Nelson's Villa Paula is amazing experience. They are both very kind and helpful with anything you might need. Katty brought us to her friend in David to change our motor oil. Villa Paula has equipped kitchen, dining tables, hammocks and also a pool. You can cook with the abundance of avocadoes all around, which is pretty amazing. Katty also showed us how to make tortillas the right way.

If you are heading to or from border, this is definitely the place to stay.

The owner lives on the property too and is very helpful in case you have any issues or have questions. Nice pool and decent WiFi. Monkey stops by every morning to say hi!
Just watch out for the huge avocados... :-)

a further comment, the best entrance is from the cruce de boqueron on the Panamericana to the village of tijeras and take the road next to the minisuper which will bring you to the entrance. There is another entrance which has a bridge with height restrictions.

Quiet & near to small village with shop & bars/ restaurant. Price negotiable around $10 for vehicle with power & water.
