Stewardship at Secas

From the very beginning, our vision has been one of conservation, community and culture.

As soon as you step onto the Islas Secas, you’ll feel it. Our commitment to being a blueprint for sustainable tourism can be seen everywhere, whether that’s protecting our natural resources or supporting the cultural integrity of Panama. With 13 of our 14 islands left undeveloped and wild, we pride ourselves on being small-scale, low-impact, governed by environmentally-sound management practices and working in partnership with the local Chiriquí community.


We are proud to run on 100% natural energy, to recycle 100% of our food waste and wastewater, and that 75% of the archipelago remains undeveloped. Our decisions on design, infrastructure and operations have created a model of environmental stewardship.

Our responsibilities towards our extraordinary natural assets are clear. Islas Secas is protected under Panamanian law, and our dedicated conservation and research programs reflect our commitment to preserve the archipelago and wider area’s exceptional biodiversity.

We are part of the wider Chiriquí community, and as such support both local businesses, community education and development projects. Islas Secas is also supporting the development of a whale education program for local children.
