Hollywood fond of Panama's natural splendor - new green travel destination top rated by travelers on

Hollywood fond of Panama's natural splendor - new green travel destination top rated by travelers on ( CLEVELAND, Ohio&BOQUETE, Panama) – The secret is out: Panama is the latest buzz among nature lovers and city dwellers in search of that ideal tropical vacation to get away from stress and cold weather.

And Hollywood takes note as green celebrity and healthy life style author Mariel Hemingway tweets fondness for Panamas green hills to the Twitter community, and major travel guides and magazines - including Lonely Planet and National Geographic Traveler - seem to second the motion.

No surprise, green travel is getting popular in Costa Rica's tiny neighbor, Panama – also thanks to some hotels implementing nature friendly policies, like the new Rancho de Caldera eco-resort - among the first in Central America to receive the coveted Green Globe Hospitality certification. ( )

Clean energy from hydro-, solar-, and wind powers this new, luxurious hospitality project off the grid year round.

Equine aficionados among Rancho's guests explore the region on horseback, swimmers love the pool with a view, and everyone loves the cozy terraced guest bungalows that even offer free WiFi connections.

Rancho owner Gina Cronin, from Cleveland, Ohio, finds that not only families with teenagers love the plethora of activities on site and in the Boquete area, which enjoys a spring-like climate year round. (Not surprisingly, besides attracting honeymooners and green travelers, the area is a new hot spot for expats from the US, Canada, and Europe.)

And gourmets appreciate the Ranchos onsite Madre Tierra restaurant. Thanks to Chef Craig’s culinary skills, both locals and visitors can now enjoy delicious meals in Panama – a country that was more noted for natural splendor until now - rather than for culinary excellence.

One man reports that he cycled 4,000 miles to get to Rancho de Caldera. To read his story click:

(To date, it remains unclear if it was a craving for Chef Craig’s famous French fries which prompted him to cycle here all the way from Georgia.)

Anyway, delicious food seems only one of several good reasons why Twitter, Facebook, and TripAdvisor are buzzing with rave reviews of green vacations at Rancho de Caldera.
