Contadora Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Contadora Island is located on the Pacific Ocean side of Panama. It's south of Panama City and is a part of the Archipielago de las Perlas (Pearl Islands). The Island's name comes from the legend that English pirates and Spanish conquistadors used to "count" all the pearls they acquired on this island.
The island is known for its 13 beaches of white sand and clear water. There are two resorts on the island, but it is also popular as a second home destination for panamanians. Beautiful beach houses line the beaches or roads.
The area is great for fishing and scuba diving.
Daily 16 minute flights connect Panama City (from Albrook national airport) to the island.
