There we were met by Amber and Rosie and once on the boat ride to the island, they popped open a bottle of... More

Sorry for this delayed review, Popa! My cousin and I stayed here with our moms for a mother-daughter trip, and it was an incredibly unforgettable experience. I planned the whole thing, so they didn't really have any idea what to expect. Our flight from Panama City was delayed, so we ended up traveling through the water in the pitch-black of... More

My apologies Popa, this review is WAY overdue! My husband and I spent a week-long honeymoon at Popa this past June and had a MAGICAL time. We wanted something "tropical and exotic" and got exactly that.
