Topic Star Lodge, Pinas Bay, Panama
Panama has been a sport fishing mecca for quite some time. With over 250 International Game Fish Association world records broken, Tropic Star Lodge in Pinas Bay stands as the poster boy of all that Panamanian fishing has to offer. This has been a dream trip of mine for quite some time as it has all of the attributes of a great fishing adventure; foreign travel and culture, beautiful scenery, and world class fishing.
A typical itinerary for this trip would be to fly into Panama City and stay a night to sample the local flavor. The following day, take a short, fifty minute flight to Pinas Bay and then hop on a panga for a short boat trip to the lodge. From then on, it is fishing, kayaking, swimming, beach-strolling and exploring jungle rivers until you have to head back home.

Thank you, B, for the wonderful post on Tropic Star Lodge. It looks amazing and I look forward to going with you one day. However, if we have a black marlin that close to the boat, I assure you I will be standing inside the boat....taking pictures, of course! :)
Hope you all enjoyed my husband's dream vacation and another great coastal escape on this edition of VACATION FRIDAY!
Have a great weekend!
