Guadalupe, Panama, is a small village in the Highlands of western Panama. It's located in Chiriqui Province between Cerro Punta and the Continental Divide. It's where the asphalt ends near the slopes of Volcan Baru, Panama’s highest peak.
Near the border of Costa Rica is the city of David. From there, drive west to the town of Concepcion. Drive north up a winding asphalt road to the city of Volcan. Beyond Volcan is the scenic Bambito Hotel and Resort. It’s a wonderful place to stop and walk around or spend a night or two.
A few kilometers up the road is the village of Cerro Punta. This is the main breadbasket for all of Panama. We stayed at Hotel Cerro Punta, and there is an onsite restaurant with a most gracious host. Nearby there is a hostel named Elvita. Although we did not stay there, from what I could see, it was popular with hikers.
Continue on and you will reach the end of the paved road and Guadalupe. It's a popular place for bird watchers, especially those who are searching for the elusive Resplendent Quetzal.
