Morro Negrito is great! Great waves, accommodations were fantastic, great people working there that took us to 10 different surfbreaks with one else there.
It was worth every penny.

Is it true that it is $550 per stay? I am interested in going there in November. Do you know if that is a good spot during that time?

I went ot Bocas while working o na boat and stayed for 1 year. The waves suck, crowded, expensive, too many bugs, inconsistent surf that is hard to get to, other than that its great!

Just trying to figure out where that Santa Catilina spot is. I'm heading to Panama in a month and planning on doing some surfing when down there and don't want to deal with surf camps/tours... any help on the subject?

Get a good map of Panama. Catalina is on the west coast of the Azuero peninsula, west of Panama City (the country runs roughly east and west). Rent a car, preferably an suv such as a 4-Runner, and drive out of Panama City west to Santiago. Go southwest from Santiago to Santa Catalina. Better to go with someone who knows the route. April is a great month but Catalina will probably be crowded. Another good place is Venao, out on the southern coast of the Azuero peninsula. Heading west from Panama City, turn left at Divisa and go to Pedasi. Stay at the Residencial Pedasi, on the left just as you reach the town (across the street from the Banco Panama and police station). Clean and very reasonably priced, but simple. Use the map to get from there to Venao, about a half hour drive. Beautiful place and great waves. See it now before it gets developed to hell.

Forgot to mention. Don't speed. Lots of traffic cops along the route. Don't go over 100 kph (60 mph) on the freeways or you'll get busted.

I don't know which Morro Negrito you went to, but the one I went to was rocking. The waves were good the whole time, we caught a bunch of fish, the food was fantastic....and we got boated right into each of the breaks. All we had to do was paddle just a bit into fantastic waves. Maybe you run a competing camp in Panama and want to dis this place....but I can tell you...it rocked when I went.....Oh, just so we are clear, I was there this past April.
