Piñas Bay, Panama truly lives up to this meaning .The abundance and variety of gamefish caught in the Pacific waters around the lodge includes Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Striped Marlin, and Sailfish. All species of billfish can be caught “right outside our front door,” making this a truly unique location. You have a good chance of catching large Dorado, Yellowfin Tuna (some over 200 pounds), above average size Roosterfish (many over 50 pounds), big Cubera Snapper, Amberjack, Rainbow Runner, Wahoo, Grouper and Mackerel. In recent years a few “Pacific” Tarpon have also been caught.
Accommodations at the Tropic Star Lodge
Tropic Star Lodge is a veritable paradise cut out of the side of a mountain at the edge of the Darien Jungle on the Pacific coast of Panama. The Lodge is situated 150 miles south of Panama City. It can only be reached by boat or plane, since there are no roads within a hundred miles. A charter plane lands on an airstrip in Piñas Bay. You then take a ten minute boat ride to Tropic Star Lodge. The original owner’s home is known as El Palacio, or the Palace. It is reached by cable car, or for those looking forexercise, there are 122 steps up the mountainside! The Palace has three bedrooms with private baths, and can sleep six. It has a sunken living room and outside terrace, both with a beautiful panoramic view of the Bay and surrounding mountains. Our spacious cabins and rooms are air-conditioned, with a beautiful view of Piñas Bay. Each room has twin beds and private bath/dressing room areas. A king-size bed can be requested. The cabins have surrounding porches with chairs.
Multi-course dinners, complete with wine, are served in the scenic bay-view dining room each evening. The chef prepares various specialties, such as Baked Alaska, Cherries Jubilee, black bean soup; fresh baked pies and bread, ceviche, and many more varied and delectable dishes. A fresh “catch of the day” is offered, as well as our regular main course selection.
