Spend the day island-hopping off the Pacific coast of Panama in a private boat! The Pearl Islands, an archipelago of over 200 islands and islets, is located just one hour from Panama City by speedboat and is the perfect place for some quality beach time and snorkeling in a paradisiacal setting.
Coiba National Park is a protected zone off of Panama’s Pacific Coast, in the Gulf of Chiriquí, consisting of the main Coiba Island, as well as 38 smaller islands and their surrounding waters. In 2005, it was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its rich flora and fauna and also scientific value, serving home to many threatened species and important to key migration patterns. Coiba Island was once a penal colony, therefore limiting human access or contact, so the result is an extremely pristine destination with nearly intact natural resources.
