About Your Hosts

Hello. My name is Ed Crupar. I and my lovely wife Nuriana are of like minds that come from different worlds. We met on January 24th, 2014 in Bocas del Toro, Panama and as time went on our romance grew into a wonderfully caring relationship for each other. We moved to Boquete, Panama in December of 2014 and shortly after opened Boquete Sandwich Shop, which is a restaurant that we still run today. On December 1st, 2016 we were married by the Notary in David, Panama in a small ceremony. We bring to you our unique experiences, our diverse upbringing, and a desire to make every effort to make your stay at Casa de Montaña a memorable experience!

Ed was born in The Bronx, New York. He grew up through his school years on Long Island in Baldwin, New York. In 1975, Ed moved to South Florida where he spent the next 38 years. While there Ed worked for 30 years as a career Firefighter/Paramedic for the City of Tamarac Fire Department. After his retirement Ed started his Southbound migration and made his final destination and new home in Panama where he met and married his wife Nuriana.

Nuriana was born and raised on Isla Cristobal located in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago island chain along with her three sisters. Nuriana has spent many years working in the Hospitality Services industry and while her passion for customer service is second to none her cooking talents are beyond description. Nuriana brings much wisdom and experience to Casa de Montana.

Nuriana is presently enrolled in a University in David, Panama and is a forth year Law student. Once she graduates Nuriana’s vision is to be able to help people in need.

“The goal here is to give you what you need while you are taking time away from work – whether that is relaxing or sightseeing. We want to be a part of the most precious time of your life. We know that vacations and holidays do not come frequent enough, so when you come and spend your vacations with us, we will make both your breakfast and your bed! We are confident that you will have the best time ever!”

Ed and Nuriana are looking forward to meeting and getting acquainted with you and serving you. “Just give us a call and we can help take the worry out of your planning!”
