Welcome to Isla Taboga
A tropical island with just one road and no traffic, Isla Taboga is a pleasant escape from the rush of Panama City, only 20km offshore. With the addition of some decent restaurants and boutique lodgings in the town of San Pedro and plenty of activities, it's growing as a destination. Named the ‘Island of Flowers,’ it is covered with sweet-smelling blossoms much of the year. First settled by the Spanish in 1515, the quaint village is also home to the western hemisphere's second-oldest church. While there are better beaches elsewhere, this quick, almost Caribbean getaway is a salve for city living.
