The Islas Secas (Dry Islands) is a small archipelago in the Gulf of Chiriqui on the Pacific coast of Panama consisting of about sixteen islands.

They were privately owned by American entrepreneur Michael Klein, who constructed an eco-resort on the islands, prior to his death on a flight from the islands to view Volcán Barú.
