Accommodations

Your group can join us at either Puerto Mutis or Santa Catalina to begin your trip. Our staff will transport you via our 24 foot fishing boats to the ranger station on Coiba. These boats are equipped with fishing, surfing and snorkeling gear and can hold 200 gallons of fuel each. We can safely travel throughout the Coiba National Park for up to six days at a time without returning to the mainland. This means that you donít have to return to the mainland if you donít want to.

Our guides have years of experience guiding in Coiba National Park and surrounding areas. The boats are fully equipped with all safety gear including VHF, GPS navigation systems, life jackets and satellite phone. Our captains are professional licensed captains that are also trained in CPR and first aid. Each captain and guide understands the fishing grounds, surf spots and all points of interest. They will help you plan your day while they take into consideration the weather, swell and current fishing conditions. We provide all needed fishing gear including fighting belts, big game and inshore fishing gear, lures and tuna tubes. If you have a particular piece of gear you would like to bring, please do so. We request that you bring your surfboards for surf excursions.

Your group will be staying at the Coiba Island Ranger Station on the northeast side of Coiba Island. We will make all the necessary arrangements for you.

This location allows us to be in the center of the activities on Coiba Island. The ANAM ranger station was once Club Pacifico, a famous fishing lodge back in the 1970ís. The station has five large cabanas, each with two separate rooms that have six beds. The location was chosen for its perfect moorage, stunning white sand beach, turquoise blue water and beautiful jungle terrain. The cabins have stunning views, air conditioning, a sink, bathroom and a shower.

While you are staying at the ranger station, we encourage you to hike up a cleared pathway called the ďMonkey TrailĒ which is named after the howling monkeys frequent the overhead trees along the path. There is also a bird viewing station near the cabanas that is within walking distance and available anytime to bird enthusiasts. A large white sand beach is the highlight of this location as it is the perfect place to grab a cool drink, sit in a hammock and allow our chef, Jose to cook a warm meal for you. There is a dining area and full kitchen at the ranger station, but donít worry, Jose will do all of the cooking for you.
