Value for money:

Located just south of David in the province of Chiriqui, this lodge offers the traditional all-inclusive Panama fishing lodge experience – VIP service on arrival, seamless transfers, excellent accommodations and sportfishing (both inshore and offshore) in the fish-filled waters of Panama’s Pacific coastline.





The fishing

As with all destinations along Panama’s pacific coast, the options fall into two main categories here – inshore and offshore fishing. Offshore, this is Panama marlin fishing at its best, with year-round sport for blue and black marlin, monster yellowfin tuna, sailfish and dorado. In terms of inshore fishing, it’s all about roosterfish and cubera snapper, using a combination of live baits and surface poppers. The folks at Paradise Lodge recommend the avid top water angler should arrive with no fewer than 10 surface plugs, with break-offs commonplace.

For the avid fly-fisherman, offshore bait-and-switch for sailfish, along with sight casting to dorado, provides phenomenal seasonal fly-rodding. Typically, the dorado action is at its peak in December, with sailfish peaking in January. Added year-round excitement can be found fly-casting the often flat-calm waters on the backside of Coiba Island for big snappers, jacks and snook.

All fishing is from center console boats, guided by skippers with over 25 years’ experience fishing these waters.

The facilities

Paradise Lodge works hard to live up to its name – in addition to the comfortable and roomy air-conditioned cabins, there’s an excellent swimming pool with a swim-up bar, internet access and beautiful grounds overlooking the Pacific. All food and beverages are included in packages at Paradise Fishing Lodge, and as the folks here say, what you see is what you get: “There are no bar tabs, transfer fees or other hidden costs.”
