Located in the Gulf of Chiriquí, Coiba National Park is a marine reserve off Panama’s Pacific coast. Coiba National Park (Nacional Parque Coiba) is comprised of a group of 38 islands including Coiba Island (Isla Coiba) and the waters surrounding them and covers 430,825 acres.
Identified by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 2005, Coiba National Park offers rich and well preserved natural resources.
Because Isla Coiba served Panama as a penal colony, access to the island was very restricted. Almost by accident, 80% of the islands’ natural resources have therefore survived untouched and flourished through limited human contact.
With its designations as a National Park, Isla Coiba, its surrounding waters and island neighbors have been given a greater degree of protection. While still subject to poaching, illegal logging and other trespasses, the Panamanian government has taken a large step in their preservation.
We will visit the islands around the national park, enjoying its virgin beaches and fantastic snorkeling.
Its waters are ideal for diving enthusiasts, so if you are certified, we can organize that each morning the local guide will pick you up on board to take you to the most famous diving spots of the marine reserve.
The local diving center will take care every day for all the material you will need, so you can just relax and enjoy yourself.
