What can I do at Los Establos?

Most on-site activities are relaxed and self-paced, meaning it is entirely dependent upon how you want to spend your time. We personally recommend sitting on the large terrace and taking in the breathtaking sights of Volcan Baru, Panama’s only volcano. Aside from the wonderful view, you can take a refreshing dip in our pool, explore our gardens, enjoy a nap on one of our lounge chairs, or challenge a friend to a game of billiards on our terrace. If you’re in the mood to stay in, you’ll be happy to know that all of our rooms are equipped with satellite flat-screen televisions so you don’t have to miss a single episode of your favorite show. You can also indulge in a relaxing spa treatment or workout in our fully-air conditioned fitness center. We also offer a selection of board games in our community lounge where you can catch the latest sports game or sing karaoke with friends. In the evenings, you’ll want to join us for our version of ‘Happy Hour’ in the main house, which includes full bar service offering mixed cocktails, wine, and spirits. After just one day at Los Establos, you will feel both relaxed and refreshed.
