It takes only 20 minutes boat ride to get to Coiba National Park; 

the #1 scuba diving destination in Panama.

*Don't worry, there's a free wifi hotspot in the village.


Option 1 by boat leaving from Puerto Vidal:

Sona-Puerto Vidal 30-minutes.


You get to Puerto Vidal by car/bus or taxi. It's a paved road in very good condition.


From here the boat will pick you up and take you on a 40-minute scenic ride.


The first half of the trip goes through mangroves and rivers and the last part is along the pacific coast entering the bay of Pixvae.


There are options to park your car in Puerto Vidal and leave it there for the duration of your stay.


Option 2 by car (4x4 only):

From Sona to Pixvae it takes around 3 hours. It's a very beautiful trip through the lush mountains and jungle. Enjoy beautiful views along the road.


It takes a 4x4 truck and experienced drivers to come by car. In the rainy season more so than in the dry season (December - April).


It is a dirt road all the way and gets challenging when the rain hits. Please ask us about road conditions before starting your trip. We will also send you a map to coordinate you through the mountains.


Option 3 by plane: The quickest way to get here. Max. Group size is 6 to 8 people depending on plane availability. Departure from Panama city approx. 1-hour flight duration.
