I t’s a luxury family resort – but not as you know it… Whether you’re escaping for Christmas and the New Year with the whole family or planning a multigenerational get-together over Spring Break, this Condé Nast Traveler winner will create winter sun memories to last you a lifetime.

1. We’re the top resort in Central America

We’re thrilled to have just been voted as the #1 resort in Central America in the 2022 Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards. Now in their 35th year, these prestigious awards celebrate the very best in global travel, and we couldn’t be more proud to have reached the number one spot.

An archipelago of exquisite islands in the Gulf of Chiriqui on the Pacific coast of Panama.

2. Islas Secas is easy to get to

Want to escape the chilly Christmas or Spring Break weather but don’t want to travel too far? A luxury family vacation at Islas Secas is your answer. There are direct flights from a number of locations, including New York, Miami, and international hubs across South America and Europe. And arrival at Panama City is seamless. You’ll be met and whisked through immigration and customs, straight to our very own Twin Otter aircraft for a short 1 hour 10-minute hop to the resort.

Islas Secas’ private plane is the quickest and easiest way to reach the resort.

3. We offer adventures in nature like nowhere else

Yes, we’re a luxury private island resort, but we also offer an authentic Central American safari experience that the whole family will revel in. That means getting up close and personal to our extraordinary flora and fauna, from watching humpback whales breach in the sparkling sea, to scuba diving with swarms of tropical fish in Coiba National Park. Days can be spent kayaking around our protected archipelago, hitting the waves with an E-Foil, spotting countless endemic birds, and getting your hands dirty with our in-depth conservation experiences.

Explore our storied waters and reward yourself with treasures every day.

4. A showcase of Central American gastronomy

We’re proud to be home to the finest restaurant in all of Panama, led by celebrated chef Saul Umaña. His cuisine is fusion at its best, using locally-sourced, seasonal products and just-caught seafood that surprise at every meal. Children are well catered for too, and our stylishly laid-back Terraza offers the most relaxing place to gather for a Spring Break family vacation or a balmy winter sun holiday on the beach.

5. The best island for a family vacation…

We’re not just one private island – we’re a whole private archipelago, a pristine collection of islands that are yours to explore and discover. Make the most of your luxury family vacation and take over Casita Grande, where you can all spread out, kick back and reconnect.

The perfect playground for family or friends: four casitas overlooking the emerald waves.
