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!
