Off of Volcancito road 5 minutes before reaching the town center is the humble getaway Hotel Refugio de Montana. This is the fancier sister to Hostel Refugio del Rio in town. This 10 room boutique hotel provides a great escape from the hustle and bustle of travel and the city life as well as rest from any of the numerous hikes in the area. We were welcomed by a well landscaped drive way and a decent hotel facade with rot iron metal doors which were really appealing. Camille really enjoyed the foyer as it was nicely decorated and had warm furnishings & antique lighting fixtures. The lobby area leads to the garden which is a very nice open space that has a rustic setting with wooden logs as seats and recycled wood as tables. While sitting outside, we were serenaded by the song of various birds including kiskadees and tanagers. Wifi and coffee are provided so pull up a chair, bring your Birds of Panama book and relax. We both imagined the garden as as a perfect venue for an outdoor wedding. They even had barbecue grills and an outdoor pizza oven set up, though we never got to use them.
