Just completed a fabulous fishing trip to Isla Coiba. As a veteran well travelled fisherman, this was by far the best saltwater fishing i,ve experienced.

The Captain Tom Yust and his staff did their utmost to make our (4 fishermen) trip terrific. Incredible variety, numbers and size. In shore/off shore whatever you want. Trolling, bottom fishing, live bait fishing for huge snapper all great! Fishing gear top notch as was the effort put forth.

The food mostly fish dishes was fabulously prepared.
.

The accomodations (these are cabins owned by the Panamanian government) are for sure spartan but the beds comfortable, the AC works and the rest adequate ---5 star its not, but if fishing is your goal--Tops! Can't wait to go back different time for different species. We caught nearly 20 different species!

Time to work in snorkeling, wild life viewing at the Coiba visitors center. The accomodations basic. But clean and safe. You will also meet folks from all over the world who came to visit, fish , dive, hike, see wildlife, kayak etc.

Do yourself a favor and go fishing!

Check before you go to Coiba Island!!! We went in January 2013 expecting alot more than we paid (18000). The generator for cabins was broke and been for some time. The large cabin cruiser was also down so we fished in a open center console 30 foot boat with no shade. Fishing was very slow and the Captan and First Mate were constantly arguing. I will say the island is very beautiful just to bad the rest of the trip was not as promised.

We spent a week on Coiba with Coiba Adventures. It was amazing. We have fished many remote islands but Coiba is the best. We caught 6 marlin in 6 days all in the 300-500 class. The marlin were great but the island and the experience were even better. Tom improved the cottages at the park, making a remote location very comfortable. The food was delicious. The staff was welcoming. Coiba is so remote and pristine. The island's beauty is breathtaking. The water is crystal clear and warm. Every cove is different and remarkable. The history of the island and the prison are fasinating. I highly recommend. I can't wait to return.
