$3 to walk it, $6 to fish with your own gear. I've fished there a few times during different parts of the year and February wasn't good for me. It was windy and cold and none of the locals were out fishing which should have...More

We love walking on the pier and watching the sun go down. We have tried fishing a few times but no luck. Next time we are in Panama we are going to fish all night.

The waves crash over the end of the pier and the kiddos love it! On sunny days, grab a drink at the bar and enjoy the day!

Paid 3 dollars to walk out on the pier...and I'd do it again. It's fun to go watch the people fish and to watch what they bring up. We saw 2 sharks, a hole heap of fish, a barracuda, and several stingrays. Wouldn't have seen...More

They obviously charge you for fishing but they charge each person $3 just for taking a walk! Honestly it’s not worth paying$3 for! Take a walk on the beach instead.

This was our 2nd visit to the pier. My husband and 2 sons rented fishing poles and had a blast fishing off the pier. While there we got to see a sea turtle and dolphin which was exciting! We will definitely be back to fish...More

They had a place for you to clean your own fish but did not see a price for them to clean it.
