Last year, 2020, was an incredibly challenging year for so many people and so many local businesses. But we are happy to share now that the Sport Fish Panama Island Lodge is fully open for business and welcoming guests on our fishing expeditions and in our unique island accommodations.

So, if you’ve been waiting to plan your next vacation, now is a great time to start doing so! Here’s what you have to look forward to with us in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

Our Borders Are Open

For health and safety precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Panama, like many countries, closed its borders to protect local residents. However, our borders opened up again in October 2020, so we have been welcoming guests again for several months now. As COVID-19 case numbers have declined, commercial aviation has resumed, businesses have reopened, and people from all over the world have started traveling here again.

Improved Protocols and Practices

As a tourism industry business, your health and safety are our top priorities. While adhering to local pandemic closure guidelines, we put extra thought and attention into our current protocols and made improvements to keep you safe and protected. Sport fishing in Panama is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that’s unlike anything else, so we are doing everything in our power to be mindful of our guests’ needs and wellbeing.

Safe and Comfortable Accommodations

One of the best parts about booking a fishing trip in the Gulf of Chiriquí is staying at our unique sport fishing lodge that is the closest lodge to the offshore action at Hannibal Bank and Isla Montuosa. We offer a remote tropical island experience that feels like paradise from the moment you arrive.

When you stay with us, you’ll be totally off the grid in a self-contained hideaway that is surrounded by nature rather than other tourists and crowded scenes. Our lodge has two- and three-bedroom guest houses and all the modern comforts of home, including high-speed Wi-Fi, purified water, solar and diesel-generated power, hot water showers, air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and fully stocked beverage refrigerators. We’ll take care of all your meals and drinks so you can simply relax and enjoy your fishing vacation.

Get the Island Escape You’ve Been Dreaming of

So many people had to postpone travel due to the pandemic, but we want to make you feel safe, comfortable, and confident with your choice to book a trip with us. We’re so excited to be able to take guests out on the water and accommodate them in our lodge again, and we’d like to personally welcome you to join us for an experience you’ll never forget.
