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... More

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... More

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 (... More

We took a family trip to Hooked on Panama in June, and had an exceptional trip. Our whole experience great. The owners and staff are very nice and helpful, both before and during the trip. The booking process and pre-trip info was very good, and we had fairly regular contact with staff before we left to answer a few questions... More

We spend some days here with family and our kids. It is a nice place with nice pool for the kids. Food was great too. The cabins are big and all with a terrace facing the beach. There is a lot of birds around and we saw some iguanas. Fishing was the best, we had to go far out finding... More

We spent 2 nights in the Hooked on Panama Lodge but definitely we will stay longer next time. My husband and brother in law went fishing and catched 2 huge Marlins! What a fantastic experience! The service is really good. The owner brings a lunch bag and drinks early in the morning when they left for fishing. We spend the... More

I took my 3 sons to the Lodge for 4 days of fishing. I had high expectations and those were exceeded. The end result was all three boys caught their first Marlin on the same day. The boys totaled out with 8 Marlin both Blacks and Blues released, 2 Sails released, and I caught a 62.5 inch Rooster fish. The... More

4 friends got more than we bargained for in the middle of no where. There are many undeveloped areas in Panama but the border area near Punta Burica is truly the end of the road. On a previous visit to the area we had taken a very quick 5 minute look at this property hoping to find a good fishing... More

The lodge is clean and the owners are very friendly. It's run kind of like a bed and breakfast, and the grounds are very well kept. The villas all have televisions and the wifi service was very good even in the villas. Beware of sand fleas if you walk the beach though, lol. The food was 5 star at night... More
