Location is fantastic. Quiet and back to nature. Staff are great and rooms do the job. Dinner and lunch are lovely and you generally dine with other guests. Breakky was pretty average however. Fishing was not our day with only one YFT but the boat was well equipped and well done.

This was our first time fishing in Panama and we loved it! The lodge and grounds are beautifully groomed. The cabins are spacious, clean and comfortable (not that you will spend a lot of time in the cabin, you'll be too busy fishing or hanging out in the main building). The cook provides wonderful meals, from the appetizers to the...

WILD PANAMA - A FISHING TRIP OF A LIFETIME Beginners need not apply. If you are a die hard fisherman and willing to fish from 7am till 6pm, then this is the adventure of a lifetime. I had contacted Mike Augut who is a professional fisherman to arrange the trip to Pesca Panama. Ted Merletti, one of the other owners...

Very nice people...and that means everyone from the owners to housekeeping. My wife and I have chartered fishing in several locations; Kona to Costa Rica. Our next visit will be longer. Boat Capt [Victor] and mate [Jacinto] , very professional and worked their butt off for us. Willing to discuss fishing methods. Meals were excellent and very reasonable. No surprises....

We reserved a casita for two nights, simply as a getaway. It was that, for sure. The pool wasn't open, but we were told that when we made our reservation. Fishing season hadn't started yet, but we don't fish, at least not in a big way. And this is a Fishing Lodge, after all. So we "vegged out". A drive...

Great fun. Great hosts. We didn't fish, just relaxed and enjoyed the hammocks, pool and food. Rooms are nice, air conditioned and large. Mike and Gay and Rex and Connie were attentive and made sure we were comfortable and well fed. Would highly recommend this hotel. Did I mention how quiet and private it is?

I found out this year about this place which is 15 minutes away from my hometown in Puerto Armuelles, Chiriqui, Republic of Panama right next to the Costa Rican border. The place is so beautiful with its lush green landscape and manicured lawns. Every New Year's I go where I've never been before to surprise myself and feel the excitement...

I almost hate to brag on this place because I would like it to be kept a secret! The people here were so nice, I just had to write a review for them! If you like fishing, this is probably one if the best places I've found for that. The restaurant on the property cooks up the catch of the...

Its way off the beaten path but once your there you have everything you need. Breakfasts were great at $6 and dinner was good too .....we did not do lunch there. Not much of a swimming beach though but you have a very big clean pool. The owners are all great and eager to help and answer questions. Tigressa (...
