Reel Panama

Playa Las Mellizas
Limones, Panamá

Reel Panama lodge and fishing center offers something different: “fishing for the rest of us”. Situated in Punta Burica, one of the most beautiful and untouched parts of Panama, this English speaking lodge will give you a glimpse of what this special country has to offer anglers and non-anglers alike.

If you want to stay in beautiful surroundings and catch fish, you have come to the right place. While Reel Panama offers fishing for fun, that is not to say that you won’t catch something big. Extremely high catch rates and the promise of having your catch cooked fresh for you on your return will give you a flavor of the local way of life. All this, with the bonus of air-conditioned accommodation and a pool for relaxing after your fishing adventure.

And what an adventure it will be. Reel Panama is located just a half mile from a thousand fathom drop: for the uninitiated, that means a fisherman’s haven is right there on the doorstep. You don’t have to fish long to get some amazing catches, with Roosterfish, Tuna, Barracuda, Mackerel, and Mahi Mahi all there, waiting to be hooked. Go out in the evening, and you will be able to bottom fish for delicious Red Snapper as well.

Don’t miss out: Reel Panama is offering an unbelievable deal of three days of fishing and four nights of accommodation at the lodge for just $695 per person. And don’t worry about accessing this remote area: the staff would be happy to pick you up in David or Paso Canoas (the border town) and deliver you back again after your stay.
