Isla Taboga


Isla Taboga is located in the Panama Province, a short boat ride away from Panama City. A ferry can take you from Pier 19 in the Balboa District of Panama, straight to the island. There are many free beaches extending in either direction off the ferry dock.

Some attractions of Isla Taboga include the beaches, a quaint town center, snorkeling, diving and bird watching opportunities. The island was briefly used as an artillery practice area by the United States during WWII, and the abandoned bunkers are still there for touring. Approximately one third of Isla Taboga is covered by the Taboga and Uraba Wildlife Refuge.

Lodging is available on Isla Taboga at the Hotel Vereda Tropical, the Cerrito Tropical, and the Cool Hostel.
