Isla Contadora in Panama’s Pearl Islands, is the most developed of the 220 island and islet archipelago. Located just 40 miles south of Panama City, it is a 20-minute plane ride or a 90-minute ferry ride on a comfortable 64 passenger catamaran.
The airstrip on Contadora serves multiple daily flights to and from Panama City on Air Panama and Aeroperlas. The Sea Las Perlas catamaran ferry runs round trips Thursday through Monday with Tuesday and Wednesday available for charters.
There are four restaurants, three small grocery stores, two resorts and several B&B’s.
Golf carts are the primary mode of transportation around the idyllic tropical isle and walking from one end of the island to the other is an easy stroll.
The island is surrounded by gorgeous light sand beaches and blindingly beautiful turquoise water. If you are into game fishing, the Pearl Islands are one of the top destinations globally. A large part of the year, the Pearl Islands are also one of the world’s great whale watching sites.
Isla Contadora is the most prestigious vacation home location in the country for Panamanians. For this reason, there are very few new residential properties available on the island. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity.
