Imagine an unspoiled tropical archipelago of 16 islands off the Pacific coast of Panama, and waters teeming with the likes of marlin, sailfish, yellowfin, dorado and wahoo.
The folks at Frontiers International Travel want you to know about a luxury fishing and watersports tour set to debut this winter down there. The deal features a seven-night stay in one of seven posh casitas – each with its own cove – at the Islas Secas Resort on one of the islands.
Besides big gamefishing, the resort offers all kinds of watersports activities such as scuba diving and snorkeling around the islands' reefs, kayaking, surfing and whale watching. Says Frontiers International Travel President Mike Fitzgerald, “Islas Secas caters to everyone, from angling and watersports enthusiasts to the adventurous hiker. If you prefer to sip a refreshing cocktail on your private veranda as the sun sets and the dolphins play, just say the word.”
The week-long Panama fishing trip package starts at $7,000 and runs from Dec. 16, 2013, through June 2, 2014. The package does not include airfares.
Headquartered in Gibsonia. Pa., Frontiers International Travel is a full-service travel company that specializes in light-tackle fishing, quality bird shooting, wildlife photographic safaris, and “Elegant Journeys” throughout the world.
Getting there: You're in luck: Islas Secas has a private airstrip, so you can fly down there in your own plane. If you don't have one, you can hop on a commercial jet to Tocumen International Airport (PTY) at Panama City, where nonstop flights arrive from U.S. gateways such as Miami, Chicago-O'Hare, Newark, New York-JFK, Washington-Dulles, Houston, Atlanta and Los Angeles. There are a number of ways of getting to Islas Secas by air and sea from Tocumen and from another Panamanian airport closer to the island at the city of David.
