Panama Travel Tips

Panama Travel Taboga Island

TABOGA ISLAND - A short ferry ride from Panama City takes you to the beautiful "Island of Flowers". The ride itself is quite enjoyable, offering spectacular views to the city and the ships waiting to enter the Canal. On the island you can walk through its narrow sidewalks adorned with flowers, hike to the top of its highest peak, or go for a refreshing swim in the placid waters of one of its beaches.

What to See & Do: Tourist Attractions

Beaches There are two main beaches on the island, one to the left and the other to the right of the dock, this last one has a sandbar connecting Taboga with El Morro. During high tide the sandbar disappears.

Fishing Taboga is a fishermen's town, therefore an interesting option is to hire a local to take you to his favorite spots, or rent a charter boat and go deep sea fishing. And there's always the fun alternative to try and catch fish at night from the pier.

Hiking The view from the top of the island is worth checking out. There are two options, "La Cruz" which has view back to town, and "El Vigia", the highest elevation on the island. There are two options to reach the last one, using the main road in town that turns into a dirt road, or using a trail through the forest that starts from the park in front of the church. Sings are scarce so it's not a bad idea to ask around.
