“Special fishing experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Propiedad de Paradise is unlike any other fishing experience. Movie producers would droll over this setting - tropical paradise as one dreams about. The experience is totally personal and exclusive - feel like a jillionaire on your private island get-away. Everything is customized. Nature shows itself in it's original non-commercialized way. Capt Shane knows his waters and his fish and how to Catch them......even when noone else is!

Wow! Great photos Jackie. It is so hard to represent via photos on the web the beauty of Isla Paridas and the lodge we have here without experiencing it for yourself. But you seem to have a special talent with the camera that truly portrays how gorgeous it is here. Thank you for the photos and coming back to stay/fish with us again!!

Can't thank Capt Shane and the crew enough for the week we spent on Isla Parida. Really a great experience. From the time we stepped off of the plane in Panama City to the time we left Panama, we were taken care of by friendly and professional people.

The fishing was great with Capt Shane really knowing the territory. He was able to hook me up with a 200+ lb Blue Marlin that was a real treat to catch. TOP Cat was a great boat with excellent equipment and a nice stable platform to fish from. The lodge was clean, well kept and a great place to relax after a day of fishing. And the food, what can I say? Lise is an amazing cook and really listened to what we were interested in eating and set us up.

Can't say enough about this trip and would recommend booking a trip to this island paradise to anyone that asks.

Thanks a lot Shane!

Got to catch my first yellowfin with Captain Shane. Accomodations were perfect and the food was outstanding (thank you Elize). The scenery was amazing - tons of whales and dolphins along with some turtles and a couple of sea snakes too. Hoping to go back again next year.

This is very, very well-pulled together experience, from making a reservation to getting dropped off at the dock in Boca Chica, Shane and his crew orchestrate all the activities masterfully. They have excellent equipment, comfortable accommodations, and they have the knowhow necessary to serve their customers whether they’re experienced or novice. The fishing is simply incomparable. Propiedad de Paradise has located itself on a spectacular island close to what could be the most productive sport fishing grounds on the planet. More, however, these folks have the expertise to make the trip fun, safe, and exciting. They’re real pros! I’d join Shane and the rest of the crew again in a heartbeat.

Can't say enough nice things about this trip. Great Lodge, clean, well equipped, secluded. Fishing was great and Capt and mate were fantastic. Fishing there was like fishing in Jurassic Park. Definitely going back next year. I highly recommend it.

We had a great time staying at Propiedad de Paradise Lodge. The fishing lodge is located off the southern coast of Panama, inside the isolated tropical sanctuary of Chiriqui National Marine Park, on Isla Paridas. From the time we landed on the beach I knew I was going to enjoy this topical paradise. Shan and his staff were a blast to be around and have a few beers with. I was initially impressed with the cleanness of the living quarters. I am in the hotel and lodging business so I am trained to look for problems. But I found none. This place is a well maintain, off the grid and a clean establishment. Steve is a great cook. So after a long day of fishing having a gourmet meal prepare for you is an extra bonus. It is nice to sit back and enjoy the sunset and have him take over the cooking responsibilities.
Although the weather was not the best, Shan did an excellent job in finding fish. We caught more than we needed and then some. He is an expert in finding fish and bringing them in. We also had time to do some whale watch. Exceptional!
I highly recommend it and money well spent.

If you are looking for a place with truly world class big game fishing, this is the place, and Captain Shane is the one to book. Not only was the fishing absolutely fantastic, but the hospitality was exceptional. The lodge is breathtaking! If your wife does not fish (mine does not), it is a wonderful place to relax, read, and take in gorgeous scenery in the tropics, with all the comforts of a five star resort. I've been there three times and cannot wait to do it again.
