We have lived in Palmilla for five years and worked hard to establish good relationships with the local fishermen in Malena & Palo Seco and with ANAM. We can therefore offer trips at a reasonable price and can book at relatively short notice. However, the logistics are somewhat complicated making it necessary to book a week in advance.
Our Coiba Island tour package consists of one night and dinner at our B&B on the eve of departure and two nights at Coiba. You return on the third day around midday. You can use a shower at our B&B to refresh before you leave, if you leave. A boat with skipper & guide are at your disposal during your stay at Coiba. (You need a boat to get to the good reefs and trails). We normally stick to the program mentioned above, but sometimes changes may be necessary because of tides, currents, the weather or other circumstances. We can also adapt the program to your specific needs or priorities.
The following is included in the price of the tour:
- Food & non-alcoholic drinks
- ANAM entrance fees
- 3 nights accommodation
- all water transport
- an experienced multi language guide
- use of fins, masks and snorkels
If you would like to take along some beer, wine or other drinks, let us know and we will make sure they are on board for a reasonable price. Tour prices depend on the number of participants. We can accommodate 2 to 6 participants.
Current Coiba Tours prices:
Per person for 2 participants $650
Per person for 3-4 participants $600
Per person for 5-6 participants $550
Prices are subject to change
Your stay on the Island
We reserve a bed for you on the main island Coiba in the buildings of ANAM. Clean bedding and towels are provided, but please do not expect high standards. The accommodations are rustic dorm type cabins with up to 6 beds and one bathroom per unit. We register our guests under the name of Heliconia Bed and Breakfast with ANAM and pay your entrance fees. We do not encourage camping on any of the beaches of Coiba Island unless this is for scientific research. But we arrange picknicks, and encourage everyone not to harm this pristine environment and request you to be very conscientious with your waste. Note that not all waste is burnable and that some type of trash should be taken back in the boat. Check with the Anam Station and your skipper.
