Can’t beat the setting. Can’t beat the guide. Can’t beat the fishing! We were fishing at the worst time of the year and had to cut our trip short because of prior commitments, and STILL caught the biggest bass we’ve ever caught anywhere. Make sure...More

Had a wonderful day, perfect for kids and grande parents. Everyone caught lots, saw monkeys, caymen, and all kinds of wild life. Our second trip with these guys and we’d go again!

Rich, Jorge and Elio made our day magical. We asked for the moon and they delivered the universe. Feeding the monkeys for me, stellar peacock bass for my husband and finished with a passionate tour of the canal. This is the way to do Panama.
