Only freediving is allowed in Panama.
There are great places in both coasts, but te Pacific one has bigger fishes.
There are a couple of charters for spearfishing there.

Honduras is very good too, but no charters that I know there.
There are a nice video of Joseba Kerejeta a spanich spearo that was fishing there, very good. The video says that it is in Mexico, but a recent article in one of the spearfishing magazines in Europe sais I was really filmed in Honduras.

Have you read of Joseba's Travels in the Euro Diving Magazine's? They are awesome. He is a friend of my Dive buddy Oskar from Spain. He gives me all the inside scoups. REALLY cool... He showed me some video from Panama also with Joseba and 2 others, really cool.

Joseba is a great guy, he travels all the world fishing, but he changes a lot of sponsors. He used to be sponsored by Cressy and now by Spora. Look at this video http://www.larompiente.com/download/videojoseba.wmv
and check that the wetsuit is a Marea with Sporasub stickers on it.
He was on Venezuela some time ago, and he went fishing with my partners there and the guy really has a six sense for fishing.

One of the very few freedivers in texas between all the scuba guys.
