Hotel Santa Catalina is a 13 room boutique beachfront hotel located directly in front of the world class surf break in Santa Catalina, Veraguas Province of Panama. The hotels location is ideal for anyone coming to Santa Catalina to surf, dive, fish or just hang out at the beach or islands.

The hotel offers rooms with comfy high quality beds, 100% cotton bed linens, air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms with hot water, mini-refrigerator, cable TV, safe, and kitchenettes in the suite rooms.
