Immerse yourself in the widely lush landscapes of our protected archipelago.

Nature works at its own pace at Islas Secas, and on our expert-guided nature trails, you get to experience it first-hand. From the groomed trails of the main island, Isla Cavada, perfect for families, to an insight into the extraordinary, protected ecosystem of the wider archipelago, a hike on Islas Secas gets you even closer to the raw beauty of Panama.


With over 3 miles of groomed, family-friendly trails on the main island, you might pass our giant 300-year-old Cedro Grande tree, gaze at La Bufadora, a giant local blowhole which sprays 60 feet into the air, or emerge on Playa Canales for a stroll amongst the giant driftwood that naturally collects there. Hikes finish at Punta Buena Vista, with its cool breezes and views out over to Isla Pargo.

The islands’ extraordinary biodiversity is what drives us. Islas Secas is an environmentally protected area under Panamanian law, and our dedicated conservation programs – from vital research projects into keystone species, to the removal of invasive plants and replanting with native vegetation – ensure that our impact is always positive.
