Days 2-6

Islas Secas

Spend six days exploring the islands and all of the activities on offer. For those who love the water, consider a morning paddleboard or kayak or an incredible dive into the coral reefs just below the surface. You can organize a boat tour of the islands or try your hand at wake boarding. Other excursions include fishing in the archipelago or half/full day deep sea fishing (at an extra cost).

On land, you can choose to relax on the resort’s private beach or schedule a picnic lunch at Playa Canales. Nature walks are available around the property, including a hike to Bufadora, which is a blow hole that sprays water 60 feet into the air. For those wanting to venture further afield, you can hop on a boat to Coiba National Park for a day of exploring its incredibly diverse forest ecosystem (at an extra cost).

The opportunity to immerse yourself in nature, be it aquatic or on land, is limitless. And it can all be done in absolute privacy and with the utmost exclusivity, giving you intimate access to one of Panama’s most unique landscapes.

Following a full day of fun, there is also the opportunity for pampering at the resort’s incredible spa. Yoga classes are available throughout the day and one 60 minute spa treatment per guest is also included in your stay. Partaking in one or both are the  perfect way to rejuvenate oneself after all of the activity.

End each day taking in the islands’ spectacular sunset, from a boat or the comfort of your villa. All meals will be served at the resort.
