Trip Planner: Central America / Panama / Veraguas Province / Isla de Coiba / Nature / Coiba Island National Park
Consisting of 38 islands, Coiba Island National Park features white sandy beaches, tropical forests, and animal species that can't be found anywhere else. Find endemic animals such as Coiba howler monkeys, agouti, and spinetails, which have evolved differently to their international counterparts due to limited contact with the outside world. Look out for rare turtle species, over 147 species of identified birds, and a rich marine life including blue and black marlin. Declared a national park in 1992, the island established a penal colony in 1919 which served as a prison until 2004. The island is now considered a world heritage site. Use our Isla de Coiba trip builder to visit Coiba Island National Park on your trip to Isla de Coiba, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
