What makes our lodge unique? The proximity to the excellent fishing grounds for starters. We are the closest fishing lodge in Panama to the offshore action at Hannibal Bank and Isla Montuosa. Also, the remoteness of our tropical island paradise makes the lodge a self-contained hideaway….no other lodge in the region can say that! We are completely “off the grid” and located inside Panama’s Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park. The Paridas Archipielago is a scattering of over 25 nationally protected tropical islands and our lodge is smack dab in the center! No roads, no stores…just a tropical jungle island paradise.

A thirty minute boat ride (12 miles) from Boca Chica, and a one hour ride from David’s port of Pedregal, brings you to the largest island in the chain…Isla Paridas. Beautiful white sand and palm tree lined beaches await your exploration. Our Panama sport fishing lodge overlooks the Pacific Ocean. You’ll see turtles, schools of bait fish, and migrating whales. Snorkeling, beach combing, bird watching, ocean kayaking, or just hanging out at the lodge will provide endless days of activities for those not fishing.
Even with the island’s location and complete isolation, our offshore sport fishing lodge offers all of the modern comforts. Included are: air conditioning, hot water showers, ice machines, solar and diesel generated power, purified water, and free high speed WiFi Internet service. The luxurious accommodations of our two and three bedroom guest houses also include: outdoor showers, tropical hard wood built furniture, sofas, flat screen TVs, stereo system, ceiling fans, and fully stocked beverage refrigerators. Daily laundry service is also available upon request.
