Accommodations at the Lodge

panama1.jpg panama2.jpg

The lodge is a veritable paradise cut out of the side of a mountain at the edge of the Darien Jungle on the Pacific coast of Panama, a superstar among the world’s big-game fishing destinations. It is situated 150 miles south of Panama City, and can only be reached by boat or plane, since there are no roads within a hundred miles. A charter plane lands on an airstrip in Piñas Bay. You then take a ten-minute boat ride to the lodge.

The original owner's home is known as El Palacio, or the Palace. It is reached by cable car, or for those looking for exercise, there are 122 steps up the mountainside! The Palace has three bedrooms with private baths, and can sleep six. It has a sunken living room and outside terrace, both with a beautiful panoramic view of the Bay and surrounding mountains.

Main Lodging: Our spacious cabins and rooms are air-conditioned, with a beautiful view of Piñas Bay. Each room has twin beds and private bath/dressing room areas. A king-size bed can be requested. The cabins have surrounding porches with chairs.

panama3.jpgThe Lodge has a fresh water swimming pool and bar. A jungle trail has been cut across to La Playa Blanca, where you may enjoy swimming, sunning, and shelling on the beautiful white sand beach. This trail is over a small mountain and takes thirty to forty minutes to hike there. In order to really enjoy this walk you should be in very good physical shape! Kayaks are also available to enjoy the bay and Piñas river on your own. A jungle river trip to bargain with the "indigenous" Indian tribes.

Each afternoon when the boats return to the Lodge, "fish stories" are swapped while guests relax in the fresh water swimming pool, or drink pina coladas and eat fish fingers or sushimi on the veranda overlooking the bay, or in the air-conditioned bar.

Multi-course dinners, complete with wine, are served in the scenic bay-view dining room each evening. The chef prepares various specialties, such as Baked Alaska, Cherries Jubilee, black bean soup; fresh baked pies and bread, ceviche, and many more varied and delectable dishes. A fresh "catch of the day" is offered, as well as our regular main course selection.

Guests are catered to by over 100 employees, whose "personal touch" makes your stay a memorable one! Since the Lodge can only accommodate a total of 36 guests at a time, early reservations are a must; otherwise, you might have to be wait-listed for a possible cancellation.

Lodge enjoys a very large repeat client business. It is known the world over as an exclusive fishing lodge where quality and a quantity of fish come together in Pinas Bay! While we strive to maintain our get away from it all Tropic Star Experience, we do offer limited Internet and phone service. We have a television and DVDs in the bar, used solely for the purpose of viewing fishing videos. Please bring any cords or adapters needed for your video equipment.

We offer 6-day/7-night, 4-day/5-night and 3-day/4-night packages. Special arrangements can be made for large groups.

Lodge Fishing Guideline
panama_seasons.png

Over the years the fleet of 31 Bertram’s have been updated to include an incredible live- bait well system which holds 6-live bonito, as well as small baits like Goggle-Eyes.  The live-bait-well system has made inshore fishing for large Roosterfish & Cubera Snapper very popular, with numerous Roosterfish in the 50-70-pound range. The bait well, designed by Mike Andrews, was instrumental in making the fishing better than ever, by putting live-bait on the menu.

Offshore, Blue Marlin, Black Marlin, Pacific Sailfish, Dorado and Yellowfin Tuna roam the Piñas Bay waters. It’s not uncommon to catch Yellowfin in the 150-250 pound range. The Blue Marlin fishing, which was undiscovered until a few years ago can be extremely productive fishing live-baits and artificials. In September 2008 the lodge enjoyed an incredible Blue Marlin bite, with 6-boats fishing 6-days releasing 69-Blue Marlin. The week of January 24-31, 2009 produced 95-Marlin being released, a new TSL record. Most were Black Marlin caught on the reef 20-minutes from the lodge, many in the 500-700 pound range.

panama6.jpgBoats & Crews: Our rainbow fleet of 15 customized, fully rigged, Bertram 31’s are powered by twin diesel engines, efficient enough for the Pacific Ocean.  Rest assured you won’t be left at the dock as we fish a maximum of 12 boats daily. All boats are outfitted with GPS, VHF radios, custom tuna tubes and baitwell. Our captains are all local and have been fishing Piñas waters for many years. Several have learned their extraordinary fishing skills from past generations of captains and are considered legends in the gamefishing realm. Over the years our crews have guided anglers to hundreds of IGFA world records.

Sometimes credit card companies will decline a charge when it is over a set dollar limit and being run by a foreign bank, this has the effect of rejecting the charge, regardless of the amount of available credit on the card. In the event that this happens, you may be charged an administration fee.

DEPOSITS:
Deposits are due (14) days after booking in our Orlando reservation office. Deposits are 50% of the weekly rate times the number of guests.

TRAVEL INSURANCE:
Is recommended in the event of a family emergency, an act of God, or any other unforeseen situation that would require you to cancel your trip.

Each guest is allowed:

Excess pieces of luggage and excess weight will be charged at $1.50 U.S.D. per pound, and will travel stand-by. Note: Coolers are not permitted, and cannot be substituted as luggage (no exceptions). Excess baggage pieces are standby and, therefore, subject to space and weight restrictions. A situation may arise when your excess baggage may not travel with you to the lodge.

We recommend that when preparing to visit T.S.L. you pack a small travel bag to keep with you, in the event we use the SWIFTSHIP to transport luggage that week.

FISHING TACKLE:
If you do not wish to bring your own tackle, the lodge provides Shimano and Penn International reels and custom rods in the 16 to 50 pound class and two 80 pound class outfits.

We have on board each boat: spinning rods, baitrods, hand lines, harness, belly gimbals, Moldcraft lures, one set of teasers, Marlin and Sailfish leaders, gaffs and, upon request, a limited supply of plugs. We suggest that all our guests plan on spending some time fishing the rocks. If you would like to try this, you should bring some of your own "lucky" plugs and lures.

Additional Expenses

GRATUITIES:
A small gratuity is built into the booked rate.

As we are located 100 miles from a bank, once you are here it is difficult to provide this service. So, cash advances are virtually impossible. Below, please find information so you can establish how much you feel you will need. Safes are conveniently located in each room at the lodge.

Gratuities are at your discretion and are based on quality of service received while at the lodge. Typically each guest awards the Restaurant Staff approximately $100.00 - $150.00 per person per week. For your convenience this gratuity can be added to your final bill at the lodge.

We suggest you bring approximately $500.00 to $800.00 per person in U.S. dollars. For families and couples the amount may be a little less. There are safes in each room for your piece of mind. On Friday evenings the local Indians usually come to the Lodge to sell their handcrafted baskets and other wares. Please bring approximately $100.00 in small bills ones, fives, and tens.
