  • Book:    Multi-Day TripCoiba
    (3 days-2 nights minimum

  • The best way to experience Coiba National Park is through our overnight, multi-day trip. Imagine staying the night on the breathtaking island of Coiba and exploring underwater by day. You will have plenty of time to relax between dives on beach-side hammocks, hike to near-by lookouts and savor national and international cuisine prepared by your private chef.

    Coiba is celebrated for its incredible underwater world that thrives with amazing marine life. Whether diving or snorkeling, each day you will tour three exciting locations in the national park waters with our highly experienced, PADI-certified divemasters. If (as a group) you prefer an alternative to diving, on-land guided tours are also available. Hike through the jungle or tour the prison while hearing about the island's rich history.

    You will be staying in rustic and charming beach-side cabins, each offering electricity, several beds, a private bathroom and a fan. You won’t be the only inhabitants of the island during your stay, either: white-faced capuchin monkeys , howler monkeys, iguanas, agoutis, tropical birds and many more surround you.
