Family activities at Islas Secas


Nature’s playground, just made for adventurous families

From exploring the lush rainforest or having that first try at scuba diving, snorkeling, or fishing, to playing wildlife bingo and learning how to make the freshest ceviche on a private beach, Islas Secas offers the perfect vacation for adventurous families.

Onthe Water

Our protected waters offer an unparalleled chance to discover the joys of the ocean.

From family-friendly whale-watching trips or snorkeling over pristine coral reefs, to taking the plunge with a taster scuba diving session, learning about mangroves on a kayaking trip, or heading out on the waves with a range of thrilling watersports, our team knows just how to get kids going. Spark a passion for wildlife and the environment and together explore one of nature’s great wildernesses.


Who’s for wildlife bingo? Our friendly team is well-versed in getting children of all ages up close and personal to the remarkable wildlife of Islas Secas.

We can arrange exciting hikes through the rainforest and get the kids addicted to bird watching, or whisk you all away for a private island experience, where beach games and watersports end with a hands-on BBQ and bespoke ceviche-making session. Priding ourselves on our strong relationship with the local Chiriquí community, children can learn Spanish and get to know vibrant Panamanian culture.
