Set off on diving expeditions from the island’s specialised centre or snorkel in the warm waters among schools of multicoloured fish, eagle rays and white-tip reef sharks. Marvel as sea turtles and dolphins swim alongside divers.
One of 50 in the world, the Turbine Otter is an amphibious plane with both floats and wheels. On standby for marine safaris, spot whale sharks while the plane makes shadows on the glistening waters.
The nearby Coiba National Park is accessible by boat. Sail through some of Latin America’s most biodiverse waters while saltwater crocodiles prey and noisy howler monkeys swing from the treetops.
20kms from civilisation, guests can charter a private seaplane for a 45-minute flight direct from Panama City to Islas Secas. Instead of flying, visitors may embark on a 75-minute boat trip from the port, near to domestic airport David. Chugging along the Gulf of Chiriquí, travellers will be regaled with tales of mythical pirates who used to inhabit the volcanic coastline.
Islas Secas is closed between August and November due to torrential rains. The best time to visit is between January and April, when days will be hot and sunny.
Plan South America offers a 7-night trip to Islas Secas from $7,475 per person, full board and inclusive of international flights from the UK, all transfers and local flights.
