Tropic Star Lodge in Piñas Bay Panama - Premier resort for big game fishing

The Best Fishing Resort in the World

Tropic Star Lodge has provided the ultimate in offshore and inshore fishing adventures for our guests for the past 50 + years. We invite you to discover why we’ve been named “the best fishing resort in the world.”

Located 150 miles southeast of Panama City in the pristine, remote Darien jungle; Tropic Star Lodge has more fishing world records than any other resort. Spend more time fishing & less time getting to the fish! The reef is only 20 minutes away.

Our Pacific waters are famed for holding a vast variety of treasured species including black marlin, blue marlin and sailfish along with monster dorado, roosterfish and Cubera snapper– attracting anglers from all over the world.

Tropic Star Lodge offers fishing trips of 3-lengths:

You can choose 3-days fishing, 4-days fishing or 6-days fishing. Prices vary by (a) the number people in your group, (b) number of guests in your boat, (c) type of boat, (d) the lengths of your stay and (e) the time of year you want to fish. 

Rates are per person and based on how many guests in your boat. We only book 4 guests per boat. If your group is larger than 4 guests you have to book more than 1 boat. You fish with your own group, we do not put others anglers on your assigned boat. 

The price varies by season. Peak Marlin Season is January & February and we only offer packages with 6-days fishing and 7-nights at the lodge during this time. The rest of the year we offer shorter fishing stays of 3-days fishing, 4-nights at the lodge and 4-days fishing, 5-nights at the lodge. We are closed in October and November. 

Our charter flights from Panama City fly into our airstrip in Piñas Bay are scheduled on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and your fishing dates are scheduled around these arrival and departure flights. We offer fishing aboard our fleet of standard 31’ Bertrams or you have the opportunity to upgrade to a premium 31’ Bertram with new engine and an enclosed cabin with AC. Or choose the largest vessel in the fleet: our 45’ Hatteras. (Pollyanna).  31’ Bertrams can accommodate up to 4 anglers per boat. The upgrade Hatteras holds up to 6.
We also have room upgrades. Our premium upgrade villas and the ultimate “owners palace” are available as upgrade accommodations.
