Hotel Hibiscus Garden is an internationally-run Resort on remote Playa Lagartero , just outside of Santa Catalina, Panama. Tired of the stress and monotony in everyday life? Escape to an astonishing 'Cast-Away'-setting on Panama's wild, Pacific coastline. Internationally known for its perfect surf conditions Santa Catalina is a trending fisherman's village with the opportunities to experience world-class scuba diving in Coiba national park (also to be explored on Snorkel or hiking trips!), to relax on either one of the vibrant town beaches or our very secluded Playa Lagartero, to go fishing with the locals or to enjoy a fresh seafood dinner provided by our amazing Chef Matteo in Restaurant Hibiscus Garden. We're happy to help with any reservations of the various activities offered in Santa Catalina: - Scuba Diving - Snorkeling - Horseback riding (on-site) - Surfing lessons - Yoga classes (mornings and afternoons) - Fishing trips - SUP ... and much more!
