We did a 4 day, 3 night camp out on Coiba with another couple, under the amazing care/guidance of Liz M. Sea kayaking to snorkel, hike and simply "rest" in the tropical forest (aka jungle). Came back pretty much convinced we had spent 4 days on the Survivor TV show, except we had a wonderful cook, guide and expert with... More

We enjoyed a three day kayak trip to coiba with camping on the island. Initially we had a different trip booked but due to very strong winds and swell they recommended to change this. This was a very good decision as the first day the wind was quite strong which made sea kayaking, even in the cover of the islands,... More

Thanks for the review Daan. Yes, due to the high winds that week and swell that came in we decided to change from the exposed shore of the coast to the protected, calmer area of Coiba..prudence pays and am happy you enjoyed the area! Cheers, Michael More

It was, in one word: amazing! Just me and my boyfriend with our guide Adam on a deserteurs tropical beach at Coiba! At first we had booked the kayak to lodge tour, but due to the wind and swells Michael luckily advised us to do the Coiba camping tour instead. We had 3 days of snorkeling, kayaking, star gazing and... More

We have just returned from a two week trip to Panama during which we visited Isla de Coiba with Fluid Adventures on a three day kayaking and snorkeling trip. While this is not an inexpensive excursion, it is unforgettable. You are taken by boat to an island off the Pacific coast of Panama which is close to being untouched, having... More

Time restricted us to just 2 nights camping on Isla Coiba's Playa Machete in January 2017 with FluidAdventures. Gorgeous deserted beach - made more so by just the two of us, plus only one other person and Liz, our guide totalling our group to just four. Well-organized trip, with the enthusiastic and very capable Liz (would highly recommend) making sure... More

We had a wonderful time my daughter (20 yrs) and myself sharing a virgin beach with only 4 more persons and our guide. Daily sea kayak and 2 snorkeling trips. Well organized, completely cutoff from cell phones, and immersed in the natural beauty of Coiba above and below water... well done!

Our family of 4 spent 5 nights, 6 days sea kayaking with two guides and four other guests on Isla Coiba in December 2016 through to new year's. It was a glorious holiday. We camped in tents on a white sand beach and had everything provided for us by two very knowledgeable guides (Liz and Lucas) who took us to... More

We did the 5 night/6 day Isla Coiba trip - start to finish, it was just great! Guides were excellent - we really enjoyed Liz and Lucas - both were very competent. Scenery was extraordinary - we saw howler monkeys, white-faced capuchins - snorkeling we saw tons of turtles, sharks (!), rays, and billions of colorful fish. This really is... More

Went on a 3 day, two night kayak trip to Coiba in December, 2016. We were the first trip of the season, which was still wet mid-December. Attentive guides; great food. Snorkeling was suburb on Coiba. Bring your own snorkel gear; I had to borrow theirs, and the snorkels were all broken. Camping was fun, but they used tents which... More

Thanks for your review and happy you had a great trip. Agreed, it's tough to manage the balance the elements while camping (especially in transition season) but in doing so our groups get the benefit of a more intimate experience with Coiba than while in dorm rooms and sharing space with other groups. Cheers. More
