Islas Secas is devoted to its natural surroundings, and our passion is to be a blueprint for sustainable, nature-driven tourism.
750 species of fish, 80 bird species and 128 species of plants… and we’re a quick boat ride from Coiba National Park, a UNESCO-designated Protected Marine Area, home to the second-largest coral reef in the eastern tropical Pacific. Islas Secas offers unparalleled access to this extraordinary corner of the world, with immersive, responsible activities where guests can experience everything from endemic tropical birds and soaring frigates, to giant manta rays, humpback whales and kaleidoscopic schools of reef fish.
The protected waters around Islas Secas are teeming with marine life, the tropical reefs are home to hundreds of species of colorful fish. Further out, the Gulf of Chiriquí hosts blue and black marlin, yellowfin tuna, whale sharks, giant mantas, sea turtles and pods of bottlenose dolphins. And twice a year, the area bears witness to the spectacle of migratory humpback whales, who congregate here to reproduce.Discover More
Diving or snorkeling in the Gulf of Chiriquí is a chance to glide through one of the least explored and most abundant marine ecosystems in the world. With over 20 dive sites around Islas Secas, and the reefs of Coiba National Park nearby, guests can interact with a rich variety of reef life, from lobsters, octopuses and eels, to rays, reef sharks and an array of tropical fish. Preserving our reefs is a priority at Islas Secas, and all our marine activities respect the fragile ecosystem.
Panama is famous for its birding and Islas Secas provides a close-up view of fascinating resident and migratory species, from soaring frigate birds and migrating peregrine falcons, to a variety of hummingbirds and the cheerfully-singing bananaquit. As well as birding walks, guests can get involved in several ongoing research projects, including monitoring the second-largest colony of soaring frigates in Panama, or venture into the ocean to spot boobies, shearwaters and other pelagic species.Discover More
Our careful and considered construction has ensured that as little of the flora of Isla Cavada, the main island, has been disturbed as possible. The result is a feeling of immersion in the lush, tropical foliage, which includes rare species. We are also removing invasive, non-endemic plants across the archipelago while repopulating the islands with thousands of native plants, carefully restoring the area’s ecological balance.Discover More
