A Big thank you.It is a sad day for Simon and I at the Inn. This is our last day today after almost two years. We have had a fantastic time here and have met so many brilliant people and have made a lot of new friends. We would like to thank everyone for choosing The Balboa Inn and thank you for all the stories shared and all the new invites around the world. Thank you to LLaris & Yilli for their continued hard work and wonderful friendship. Also Samuel who has been a great driver for us and the guests and wonderful man. We would like to wish our future guests a great time in this beautiful country of Panama. All the very best to the new administrators Hiram & Sujaila (lovely couple) and hope they enjoy their time here as much as we have. Adios amigos, Love Rosie & Simon (we might be back)

The Balboa Inn is a small Bed & Breakfast at the foot of Panama’s main landmark, Ancon Hill (Cerro Ancón) in Balboa and around the corner of the Panama Canal Administration building.

Conveniently located between the downtown area “Casco Viejo”, Amador Causeway and just minutes away from the domestic airport (PAC) and the Panama Canal you are away from the city noise yet have access to all its services.

The Balboa Inn is the ideal base from which to explore Panama the place to stay during stopovers in Panama City from Bocas del Toro or San Blas (Kuna Yala).

We welcome families who will find our inn, its gardens and the surrounding neighborhood especially child-friendly and safe.  Birdwatchers will be thrilled with the amount of birds they’ll spot in our neighborhood.

Our Bed & Breakfast has nine rooms with private bathrooms. All rooms have free WiFi Internet access, scable TV, air conditioning, ceiling fans and room safes.

A gorgeous garden, a real breakfast that keeps you going for the day, good value and dedicated customer service set this managed inn apart.
