Rancho Juancho, Mechi
Great Eco-tourism escape
This is a great eco tourism escape. It's simple and mellow with great views of the Caribbean. The morning breakfasts were outstanding. If you need the Hilton amenities, this is not your place.

Great spot for a cabin based stay
We stayed 3 nights. The hotel is just outside Portobelo up a very very steep bank. The views and the farm behind are quite beautiful. Cabins are clean and equipped with air con, tv and hammocks outside. There was no hot water or wifi during our stay. The owners are very pleasant and helpful and obviously gradually upgrading their facilities; the kitchenette needed attention. We breakfasted at the little Panaderia on the way into Portobelo ate dinner at Captain Jack's (both very good) so we can't comment on the hotel breakfast, which is on request. Their is plenty to do in the area, particularly if you hire the local nature guide, Jason. Just remember this is not really a hotel with hotel facilities and you will enjoy the different experience.
