The ultimate in seclusion: a private island in its own private archipelago

Islas Secas is truly the ultimate in seclusion: an elevated outpost of adventure on Panama’s Pacific Coast made up of 14 islands and with space for no more than 18 guests at a time. Located off the beaten track and ideal for fishing, diving and other marine adventures, it’s the perfect place to escape the ordinary.


Rates start from $800 + taxes per person per night based on two people sharing a one-bedroom casita in Panama’s green season (June – September). A three night minimum stay applies. Contact Vladi Private Islands for more information on inclusions and exclusions or to receive a tailor made quote.


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


The resort is home to four casitas: the one-bedroom Casita Mirador, the two-bedroom Casita Sombras, the three-bedroom Casita Tres Palmas, and the four-bedroom Casita Grande. Comfortable and modern, each of the casitas boast relaxed furnishings, modern comforts (complimentary wifi, international sockets, air-conditioning, a hairdryer, bathrobes, towels and more), an expansive terrace outdoor deck with plunge pool and breathtaking views of the archipelago below.


Meals are served a la carte at the Terraza – a laid-back, open-air setting perfect for discovering the delights of Panama’s cuisine whilst disconnecting from the world beyond. Whether crispy fried whole snapper, seared octopus or ceviche, the flavourful menus on Islas Secas are sure to get your taste-buds tingling.


Snorkeling, scuba diving, big game fishing, whale watching and more: Islas Secas is the perfect place for a marine safari. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Coiba National Park (home to the second largest coral reef in the Eastern Pacifc) is just an hour’s boat ride away and an absolute must visit attraction.

Best time to travel

The most popular time to travel is the dry season, which extends from January to May. This season also offers better visibility for divers. The wetter green season extends from June to September.

Getting there

Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport is easily accessible via direct flights from all major North American, European and South American transport hubs. Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a guide and escorted through customs to a private, direct 90 minute charter flight to Islas Secas.

Alternatively, guests can take a flight from Panama City to David Airport. From here, guests will be met from a member of the Secas team. A short drive to the coast and a 45 minute boat journey are all that separate you from your final destination.
