This fishing lodge is incredible, the staff make this place one of a kind. The lodge itself is beautiful with everything and more you could need, the food is some of the best I've tasted. The only problem is the boats, they need replacing, which is a shame because the staff try there hardest and this is clearly an ownership...

Everything about this resort exceeded our expectations! What an amazing trip it was. Aura arranged everything for us and made it a completely stress free travel experience. We did a fishing trip on the Panama Canal for peacock bass and the tour guide, Abelardo, was amazing! We would definitely recommend this tour. Once we arrived in David, we were picked...

PBGFC is a special place. The fishing is spectacular even in what they consider the low season. In four days of fishing Marilyn and I released two 400# +Marlin and caught dozens of Yellow Fin Tuna, the biggest of which was 100#s plus. But, the experience surpasses the fishing. The staff from the Manager, to the Chef through the Captains...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Awarded a Certificate of Excellence 2012, 2013,2014 and 2015 by Tripadvisor, the first and only fishing resort ever to be honoured with this award. Our upscale waterfront jungle location is abundant with wildlife. These natural wonders help make this sport fishing lodge equalled by few places left on the planet. We are able to provide dream vacations where you can fish the big game fish, relax in a tropical setting and enjoy gourmet dining. The Club is located on the Island of Boca Brava and has proximity to the famous fishing grounds of Hannibal Bank, Isla Coiba, Montuosa and many other islands dotted throughout this area. Fishing is good year round with a lot of that due to the many sea mounds and banks that bring the bottom up from a Thousand Meters to less than Forty Meters. These areas hold a lot of baitfish. Inshore and offshore fish species include: black marlin, blue marlin, tuna, sailfish, wahoo, mahi mahi, cubera snapper, rock snapper, mullet snapper, yellow snapper, rooster fish, amberjack, crevalle jack, blue jack, horse-eye jack, sierra mackerel. Our sportfishing packages are all inclusive: accommodations, fine dining, open bar, Infinity pool with swim-up bar and Spa and local air and land transfers. The resort has undergone a multi-million dollar upgrade completed in May 2012. ... more   less
