Between the Pacific coast of the Chiriqui Province and the Coiba Island nature preserve of Panama, lies the private archipelago of Las Secas.

Seven casitas ("little house" in Spanish), designed to be comfortable, yet low impact on the environment. Each casita is situated on an oceanfront cove with views of the crystal-clear waters and the surrounding bays and islands. Each has a queen-size bed, a mini-bar with ice-cold drinks, and a full bathroom. By design, the casitas have no phones, television or radio, though wi-fi is available. The largest casita has a fully-equipped kitchen and satellite television. Typically, there are no more than 12 guests on the island, with an equal number of staff.

Meals are served in the terraza ("terrace" in Spanish) which overlooks a large cove. The food prepared by Chef Alex is exquisite but simple; keeping with traditional Panamanian style which favours chicken, fish, fruits, vegetables and other fresh, locally-sourced seasonal delights. Meals can also be delivered to your casita.

Everyone from the watersport enthusiast to the adventurous hiker will find the activity of their choice. Snorkelling, diving, sport fishing and spear fishing are immediately available. Only 12 miles away, the world-famous Morro Negrito offers reef and sand breaks that create perfect barrels for those surfers who are seeking a less crowded wave. For those who'd rather sip an ice-cold cocktail on their private bohio, as the sun sets and the fish and dolphins play, just say the word.
