2 days


Day 1

About 6:00 am you will be picked up from your hotel to catch the speed boat to Contadora Island. You will cross the waiting area for ships crossing the Panama Canal. You arrive at the island at 9.00 am, where another boat is waiting to take you to nearby islands, to explore the beautiful beaches and discover amazing marine life by snorkeling in the clear waters. In whale watching season, between July and October, we dedicate at least one hour to see mother whales with their young calves, and male whales jumping and diving in the water to demonstrate strength. Around noon, we return to Contadora to enjoy lunch at the best restaurant on the island. Lunch includes a cocktail, entry dish, main course, delicious dessert, and drink. After lunch, you will check in Gerald’s B&B. Your guide will return to Panama city and you are free to enjoy the beach or island at your leisure.

Day 2

Breakfast is included the next day. Then you need to make the hard decision about what to do with your day! You can rent a Kawasaki Mule and drive to one or more of the stunning thirteen beaches around the island, hire a captain for fishing, or simply relax and enojoy the tranquil scenery.
