Isla Tigre is one of the most traditional islands in the Comarca. With wide walkways separating homes, the island is surprisingly clean and uncrowded, which makes it easy to interact with local Kuna in a relaxed and stress-free environment. Isla Tigre is also culturally vibrant, perhaps owing to the island's fairgrounds, which are home to some of the biggest festivals and events in the Comarca.

The grounds around Tigre are amply strung up with colorful hammocks, and the ocean here is crystal clear and fairly placid, which is perfect for kayaking or snorkeling. Although there isn't a kitchen at the cabañas , there's a small unnamed restaurant nearby that specializes in the 'catch of the day.' There's also a small refresquería (refreshment stand), which is popular with the locals.
