Islas Secas Resort sits upon sixteen pristine, jungle-clad volcanic islands located in the Pacific Ocean, twenty-five miles west of mainland Panama.

The Fishing

Year round, the romance of Latin America invites travelers from all over the world. Panama has emerged as a destination for anglers to not only enjoy the spectacular fishing, but the stunning beauty and other recreational possibilities.

These islands are home of incredible fishing for billfish, dorado, tuna, sailfish, marlin and wahoo. Inshore fishing also includes cubera snapper, amberjack, grouper, dogtooth snapper and a number of others. Anglers equipped with a fly rod find equal success hooking and landing many of these beautiful finned creatures. When you don't have a rod in your hand, snorkeling, whale watching and surfing will keep you out in these gorgeous waters.

As the secret retreats of Latin America have slowly been found out, these islands of Panama remain more than a little known gem, but a full-blown treasure that's now yours to discover.

To ensure privacy and minimize impact to Las Secas' pristine environment, accommodations are limited to 7 casitas. Typically, there are no more than 14 guests on the islands with an equal number of staff members. The casitas are designed to be comfortable yet low impact on the environment. Islas Secas has chosen "yurts" as the ideal compromise. Each casita is on an oceanfront cove with views of the crystal clear waters and the surrounding bays and islands. All casitas have a queen-size bed, a mini-bar with ice cold drinks and a full bathroom. The largest casita has a fully equipped kitchen.

By design, none of the casitas have phones, television or radio. Meals are served in the cocina (kitchen in Spanish), which overlooks a large cove. Meals are delicious, but simple in keeping with the traditional Panamanian style, which favors chicken, fish, fruits, vegetables and other fresh locally sourced seasonal delights. Meals can also be delivered to your casita with one-hour advance notice. To make this island retreat all the more luxurious, enjoy a relaxing massage and pamper yourself with a professional spa service.

Getting There

Guests will fly into Panama City and overnight in the city. If a flight can be booked that arrives in Panama City before 1:30 pm, it is possible to reach the lodge on your arrival day. Guests will be met at the airport, escorted to the hotel, and are taken early the next day to Albrook Domestic Airport, where you will take a 1 hour flight up to David, Panama's second largest city. Upon arriving in David, guests will then be met by a representative of the lodge where you will then be transferred to the Port of Pedregal, which is about a 15 minute taxi ride. From the port, it is a 1 hour ride in the lodge water taxi (beer, soda, diet soda and bottled water on board) down a scenic inland waterway to Isla Secas. If the flight is early enough, a partial day of fishing can begin around 2 pm that day.
