The pool is just outside your door and the social area (complete with hammock) is adjacent. The grounds are at your disposal while staying in the condo. There are several small stores and restaurants on the island, historical evidence of pirates, conquistadors, and WWII occupation. The second oldest church in the western hemisphere, built in 1524, is here! Swimming, snorkeling, boating, fishing, sunning, hiking are all at your fingertips. We will assist you in arranging for a fishing expedition or a circumnavigation of the island, the backside of which is a pelican preserve and a haven for all sorts of wildlife (porpoises, whales, egrets, pelicans, iguanas, to name a few...).
Interaction with Guests
We are on site January through the beginning of April and available for your needs. And we speak enough Spanish to serve as translators!
This island of 1,000 year round residents is a quiet, peaceful place, lush with flowers and tropical vegetation and a stunning variety of birds. Life is much as it has been for many generations. You will find it restful and relaxing - not much nightlife except for a few excellent restaurants. After a day exploring the island, birdwatching, swimming or a day trip into Panama City, relax with a glass of wine on your patio or mingle with others in the common area.
Everything on the island is reachable on foot. There are very few cars, several golf carts, and locals transport visitors via "taxi" when needed. From the airport, take a cab to a ferry which will transport you to the island. We can assist you with reliable cab drivers and ferry information will be provided upon booking.
