About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2

Isla Taboga, known as the 'Island of the Flowers,' is a quiet, beautiful island, a paradise of flora and fauna. Cool breezes provide relief from the heat of Panama City. An easy ferry ride delivers you to the dock where you will be freed from the pressures of the city, and welcomed by locals whose families have lived here for generations.

Attractions include the 2nd oldest church in the hemisphere (1524), historical evidence of pirates, WWII bunkers, swimming, hiking, snorkeling, diving, fishing, boating. There are very few cars on the island and everything is reachable on foot. Great restaurants, nice beaches, friendly locals. There is also a health center with an excellent doctor on Isla Taboga.

The back side of the island is a protected pelican preserve, uninhabited except by the pelicans and an astonishing variety of birds and marine animals.

2 stories, townhouse style

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We both grew up on the east coast but currently divide our time between Seattle and Panama.

Why the Owner Chose Taboga, Panama:
We traveled to Panama in 2010, curious about all that we had read about retirement in Panama. We stayed on Isla Taboga for three nights and fell in love with the island. We had no intention of buying at that point, but the condos in the complex we bought into are extremely well built and maintained and we felt right at home immediately. Over the years, it just keeps getting better.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Isla Taboga is close to Panama City, but feels a world away. It is the perfect base for travels around the country or day trips into the city. When on Taboga, we are totally relaxed, enjoying the ocean breezes, hikes, restaurants, or just sitting around the pool. It's a place that inspires creativity. Bird watching is phenomenal both for avid birders and people, like us, who just love nature. Hummingbirds abound! Vogue Magazine recently mentioned Isla Taboga as the #3 out of 5 reasons to visit Panama NOW!
