To say this place is special is such an understatement!! I decided to visit for my 40th birthday in an effort to have one of the most epic weeks on the water of my life. The crazy thing about this place is that even if I hadn't of had an absolutely amazing fishing adventure the resort itself was worth the trip 10 fold. The service was top notch & endearing. The food was 5 star quality all made from scratch. The villas and resort was beautiful and spread out to make you feel as if you were the only ones there. David and Ana were there to ensure we the the vacation of our lives and I've been to dozens of high end resorts over the years but this place takes takes the top spot in my book. I was also fortunate to have 3 days fishing throughout the week, I highly recommend fishing, resting, fishing, resting, and fishing bc my body was worn after being put on so many fish that were so large. Everyday said it was going to rain bc it was the rainy season but we only ran across rain one time in the 3 days out. Carlos is an amazing captain and his mate Christian teamed up to be a world class crew. I filled my coolers with yellowfin tuna, caught monster rooster fish, and also caught 2 black marlin and had 4 bites that day in what is supposed to be the "off season". My wife caught the biggest fish of her life as well so overall I highly recommend this destination to EVERYONE!

Had the pleasure of fishing with three deserving veterans at PNC. Been fishing for 30 years and this was one of the best trips. Two of the vets had never been off shore fishing, so this was a dream come true.PNC (David) made sure everything was first class, great crews, food, lodging, staff. 20 Yellowfin, 18 dorado, 1 rooster, 1 snapper - it was a workout. If looking for a great fishing lodge in Panama, head to PNC. David, thanks again for taking care of the US veterans. John D

We had a fantastic time on our fishing trip to Panama at PNC and Cala Mia. The grounds and the Cabanas were beautiful. Lots of monkeys running around the island. Although we were there for the fishing, there were a lot of activities offered. The fishing boats, tackle and of course captain and crew were top notch. Lots of fish to be caught. The food was always great and we were always given options for dinner, and most of the time we went with fish caught that day!! We were lucky enough to catch some nice fish and share our stories with the other guests. The bar was stocked with top shelf liquor and the staff did a great job keeping our glasses filled. It was great to come back from a long day of fishing, and lounge in the pool with a few cocktails. David has done a superb job with his property and his truly first class. His staff was always super friendly and without a doubt went out of their way to make us feel special. Without a doubt we will be back to see David, his staff, his awesome dogs and of course go to get “the one that got away”.

This autumn we visited Cala Mia for the second time. Last year we were stunned by the incredible beauty and excellent service. This vacation the focus was on fishing. David and his crew exceeded our expectations. Besides the beauty of this resort David treated us with a royal service and unforgettable experiences during our fishing trips. Inshore as well as offshore we were treated with beautiful fish like Roosters, Jacks and almost a marlin. Although we experienced that other hotels dipped in quality in Panama, Cala Mia showed improvement. The food was excellent as it is the standard they have. After 2 visits we are still not bored and plan to visit again. A real paradise for the adventurous traveller. Thnx David and crew!

Wow, was this the perfect get-away-from-it-all vacation! The staff is awesome, the food amazing, and the fishing was great! Aura and her team made sure we (4 guys on a bday get away) were taken care of no matter where we were or what we were doing. Went to sleep and woke up every morning listening to ocean waves crashing on the beach. Can't wait to go back!
