Taboga Island house description

TABOGA ISLAND HOUSE COMFORTABLY SLEEPS FOUR - Enjoy our private, 900 sq. ft, one+ bdrm house, an open den with queen bed and fantastic views! We offer the best of both worlds: a lovely island retreat and a thriving city located just 10 miles away! Your private, gated entrance is surrounded by night blooming jasmine and hibiscus. A spiral staircase leads you to the large terrace where you can sway in hammocks under ceiling fans while enjoying views of Panama City, ships transiting the Panama Canal, and the surrounding islands. There are also views of colorful roof-tops, cupolas, and the downtown church steeple. A large, fully equipped kitchen and plenty of light make cooking a pleasure. You can relax at your terrace dining table while listening to the splashing of the fountain as you linger over a late breakfast or barbeque your fresh fish. It is a short two minute walk to the waters edge and nearby restaurants. From your terrace you might catch a glimpse of migrating whales as well as dolphins who frequent the waters.

Isla Taboga is a small island of about 900 friendly people in the Pacific just 10 miles from Panama City. This lush island boasts nice beaches, hiking trails, assorted wildlife and gorgeous flowers. Thus, the name, the 'Island of Flowers'. It is always warm in Isla Taboga with an average daily temperature of 88F. The water temperature averages 82F making it ideal for swimming, snorkeling and fishing. There are numerous fiestas throughout the year with music and fireworks.

Taboga Island is a preserve for thousands of pelicans who come to nest every year. You will also find ospreys, comorants, anteaters, cranes, iguanas, turtles and boobys. It is a great bird watching area! The following list is but a few you can find here: Blue-black grassquit, Blue-gray tanager, Great black hawk, Great kiskadee, Orange-chinned parakeet, Red-legged honeycreeper, Royal tern, Spotted sandpiper, Tropical kingbird, Yellow-bellied Elaenia, and the Yellow-crowned night heron.

From Taboga Island you are only a short 25 minute ferry ride from Panama City with much shopping, historic sites and many great restaurants. National Tours Ferry is located on Amador Causeway by Restaurant TGI Fridays and Balboa Yacht Club. The Calypso Ferry service (1 hour service) is located on the end Amador Causeway. There are daily flights into Tocumen International Airport with Continental, United and American Airlines, among others. From the airport you are a twenty five minute taxi ride to the heart of Panama City.

We are happy to recommend a good hotel or put you in touch with an experienced guide for tours to the rain forest, Panama Canal and the interior. We live next door to Tres Terrazas so we are available for any help you may need during your stay!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The views and the privacy are two of the best things about the house. You can see Panama City, Isla Moro, Isla Tabogilla and at times can spot both whales and dolphins out front. Enjoy your morning cup of coffee or tea on your private terrace with a sunrise view and birds singing. The ferry service allows you to take a trip into the city for site seeing or shopping and you can catch the afternoon ferry back to the island in time for the sunset!
