About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Detached Unit, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

There is 11 cabins located on the beach in Punta Burica, about 17 kilometers south of the town of Puerto Armuelles in one of the most beautiful areas of Panama. The area boasts a wealth of wildlife including howler monkeys and a wide variety of tropical birds.

This Pacific beach extends for 7 miles plus 2 miles of surfing beaches by the point. The ocean offers a bounty of fish, whales and other marine life. Punta Burica is predominantly undeveloped and is biologically diverse. However, there is a new road, electricity, and water which affords the residents an acceptable standard of living.

Reaching Punta Burica is easy. The closest main city of David and it's airport are only a 2 hour ride away. There is also an excellent airstrip 15 min. away in the town of Puerto Armuelles for possible charter flights from David or Panama City.

World renowned Isla Montuosa, Isla Ladrones and the 1000 fathom drop are all a short run away. Giant Yellowfin Tuna, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, Cubera Snapper, Rooster Fish, and Dorado are all frequent visitors to the waters off Panama.

The top season for billfish is December - April, with the best months being January-March. Winter months tend to be better for billfish. The Giant Yellowfin Tuna are most frequent in the spring and summer with tuna over 200 lbs. being commonly caught between April and July.

The main Restaurant is a spacious 3000 square feet and includes a bar and game room with pool and card table. There is a large covered lanai (deck) so you can choose between outdoor or indoor dining.

Guest accommodations consist of individual studio-sized cabins. The cabin is air-conditioned, with private covered lanais (decks) and just steps to the beach, pool, restaurant and bar. The Cabin has tropical hardwood high beam ceilings, Spanish tile floors and plenty of space to relax, with spectacular views of the pool and Pacific Ocean. We also have 2 units, with full kitchens, one bedroom with Queen size bed, bath, AC, living area, front beck, washer and dryer, shared by the two units.

Optional Tours Available - Sport Fishing, Surfing Trips, Horseback Riding, Kayaking, Zipline, White Water Rafting, Hiking, etc.

Additional cabins are available if more than one is needed. Please contact us for details.

About John Kipp

Owner of Aqua Adventures Panama Fishing and Surfing Lodge. Enjoy fishing, surfing and other water activities.

John Kipp purchased this cabin in 2008

Why John Kipp chose Puerto Armuelles

We chose this area of Panama for several reasons. Punta Burica just south of Puerto Armuelles is not only very beautiful but also one of the most undiscovered places in Panama. There is little to no development. There is a new road which makes access easy, but hardly anyone knows it is there so it is secluded. Power and a reliable water supply was already available. Quick access to blue water deep sea fishing as well as boat only access to several great surf spots made this a natural location for some great fishing, surfing or just getting away from it all.

What makes this cabin unique

The lodge offers many activities such as:Swimming Pool, Horse back riding, Pool Table and Bar and just steps to the beach. Also due to the lodge being secluded, it is a great hideaway from the busy commercial lodges/resorts.

Great Place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I wasn't sure what to expect when we booked here but it was great retreat for us. We didn't come for the fishing so I thought I might get bored but we found it very relaxing. My only regret is that we choose the cottage with the kitchen and we only got to enjoy one of the awesome meals that they serve here.

Can not say enough. We went for 2 days and stayed 5. I can only imagine if we were avid fishermen. From the incredible staff to the amazing owners we were totally impressed . Laid back and comfortable does not begin to describe this relaxing and friendly spot. Don't even ask about the meals because you will not know what is for dinner until the boats come back at the end of the day. If you wanted better ,fresher fish, you would have to dive and eat it under water!!!!! Highly recommended.

A great place to stay!

I give Hooked on Panama Lodge an A++ rating. The owners and staff were friendly, helpful and made you feel welcomed. They really take care of their guest. The cabins were very spacious, comfortable, very clean and air conditioned. The swimming pool was very inviting and well taken care of. This beachfront lodge is the perfect place to stay if your deep-sea fishing or just as a get-away to relax. The meals were unbelievably delicious.
