Islas Secas is a true real life Fantasy Island. We traveled to fish with Carter Andrews and some close friends to share in the experience. The accommodations were very comfortable and each morning we were awakened by a staff member bringing fresh coffee to the room. The island is pristine and each morning the staff is hard at work. The...

Everything about Islas Secas is impressive. It's like a 5-star Robinson Crusoe experience with top of the line fishing boats and tackle for the angler. Many fishing resorts "say" they have great tackle but few can deliver. Islas Secas delivers. We found their boats and tackle not only the very best money can buy, it was all maintained in "new"...

Incredible Vacation. I'm trying to just write the facts but i'm finding it difficult for it not to come off like an infomercial. Nothing would have prepared me for my first look at these private islands that my friends and I would be spending the next week on. After a 45 minute boat ride from the mainland we arrived at...

Our trip was based around diving and Coiba was top of the list. We did three days of three tank dives at Coiba and Montosa islands with Keirin the manager and Tommo the dive master. It was fantastic, expect all or nothing but when you get it, it's outstanding. One to two hour boat trip with packed breakfast and lunch...

After not a lot of sleep, my head is still spinning after an incredible week of adventure. I just wanted to say how grateful I am to have experienced such an incredible place. It's a world class creation. All the crews did everything humanly possible to make it happen out there...and it paid off in the end. And for that...

In a month of travelling Peru, Panama and Costa Rica, staying in 11 mostly 5 star hotels, Islas Secas was undoubtedly the most exclusive, although the most expensive. However, the cost is justified when you realize you are staying on one of 16 private islands, all uninhabited save for the resort. Situated 23 miles south of the Panama coastline, the...

My husband and I chose Islas Secas for a second honeymoon retreat and we're so glad we did! The island provides unparalleled views, warm, clear water, and exclellend fishing. The accomodations are simply elegant, clean and fully stocked with everything you need including a fridge, bar, toiletries and beach supplies. We could have packed half of what we did. Our...

We enjoyed world class hospitality provided by a great group of people in a picturesque, tropical setting. Kieron & Lilly's commitment to service is over the top. Their team not only meets the needs of their guests but anticipates & exceeds them. Our accomodations were spacious, well-appointed & wonderfuly secluded. We whale-watched from our bedroom on our own private island...

Our trip to Islas Secas was such a recreation and renewal...unencumbered by our daily concerns and in such a beautiful natural setting with warm people. Carter Andrews' breadth as an angler is amazing and his crew of Juan, Kid and Carlos were wonderful as well. Fighting that great fish and the entire fishing program now rank among my great life...
