Tropic Star Lodge - Piñas Bay Panama

Tropic Star Lodge

Tropic Star 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. The Lodge is situated 150 miles south of Panama City. It 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 Tropic Star Lodge..

Tropic Star 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 is a fascinating experience, which can also be arranged. However, this trip can only be made during certain tides. If you are interested in planning this excursion, contact Tropic Stars manager upon arrival to see if it is available and on what day it can be arranged. Many guests bring sugar free candy for the children, and special "gifts" for the Indians, such as cloth, thread, needles, or other items that can be put to good use by the tribe. School supplies for the children are always welcome, as well as used tee shirts and children's clothes. Please pack these donations in a separate bag/box and identify this as "excess luggage." It will then travel to Pinas when space is available.

At Tropic Star, the weekly bookings consist of a 31-foot Bertram with captain and mate, six days of fishing (Sunday through Friday), seven nights lodging, and three meals a day, plus all fishing tackle. Arrangements for less than a week can be made after May 31, or on short notice due to cancellations during the prime time season of December through May.

Panama Sailfish

Zane Grey Reef is a relatively small seamount of solid rock which has its base on the flat continental shelf in 350 feet of water. The sides of the seamount rise sharply to the peak which is composed of three distinct pinnacles; the two to the south rise to within 150 feet of the surface and are joined, but there is valley 205 feet deep between these two and a larger peak to the north. A number of bait species and their predators congregate around the seamount, sometimes in astounding numbers.

Kid's Club: TSL together with the IGFA are working hard at introducing kids to sport fishing. We have a great incentive to bring the kids down. July and August, kids come free! (1 kid per fishing adult) Seeing the smile and pleasure these kids get from catching a marlin, sailfish, or roosterfish and even the small baitfish on the dock at night, is what fishing is all about.
