Hooked On Panama Fishing Lodge
Reviewed February 9, 2010

First of all I would like to say that the "Hooked on Panama" resort is in a beautiful setting & it was built with care! We all know that alone does not qualify it as a great place to visit. It is the people. My wife & I were on an adventure looking for a place to hang out. I had searched Google Earth & the Punta Burica looked like a nice slice of paradise. We had a rental car & were driving west on the pennisula with no plan but needed to find a place to stay that night. We discovered there is very little out there & even less signage, advertising, etc. to direct people. We passed "Hooked on Panama" on our way west but it was early in the day & we wanted to see the area so we drove by. It looked like a very nice place from the road. After driving around for most of the day we headed back to "Hooked on Panama". When we arrived at the driveway there was a sign on the driveway that said closed for the day. We were tired & not looking forward to driving back to David to stay. I walked down the driveway to ask some questions. As it turned out the crew had been working very long hours for weeks & decided to take a day off to chill since they were between bookings. Dan Peavy, one of the owners was the 1st person I met. He chuckled when I told him our story, smiled & said I would never turn a guy down who ended up at his place. Get your stuff & join us he said. It was like hitting the jackpot, beautiful place, awesome food, & very cool people! We ended up staying for 4 days. We went fishing of course & had a great 1/2 day trip. Saw 4 sails, landed 2 & we caught a pile of Dorada. Dan gave us directions to some nice beaches to check out on day trips.
Some of the other people who made the place speacial were:
Chris - mate on our fishing trip, cook, bartender, handyman, gardener, 1st class dude!
Kelly - cook, booking manager, bartender, very sweet gal!
Whether you are into fishing or not go to this place! There is something to do for everyone.
If you don't you will have missed something special!
