Welcome to our hostel
Live and feel Panama at the Centro el Tucan in the rural community of Achiote, one of the best places in the world for birdwatching. Here you can enjoy nature, peace and quiet and get involved with local community activities.
The Centro el Tucan has gardens designed to attract birds and butterflies, with a trail and deck with a view over the valley. It is an ideal base to explore the Trogon Trail and the San Lorenzo Protected Area, and Achiote also has coffee farms, trails and decks and an intriguing community museum where you can learn about our local culture.
Nearby are the Gatun Locks at the Atlantic end of the Panama Canal and the Observation deck for the Canal expansion, Fort San Lorenzo World Heritage Site, and the beautifully untouched Caribbean beaches at Piña.
