#1 of 7 in Parks in Veraguas Province
Consisting of 38 islands, Parque Nacional de Isla Coiba 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.

  • Coiba is amazing. You need to take a piece of the country to get there (tours move only with the Santa Catalina, from there two hours by boat), but it is worth it. Paradise beaches, amazing coral reefs. The wealth of flora and fauna.

  • It is a beautiful place that you must visit, its beautiful landscapes, diversity of marine species, crystal clear waters and white sand. From Santa Catalina travel an hour by boat to reach Coiba and there are several islands that are close to that you can meet as Coco Island, Golden granite, coibita among others.

  • We have a snorkel tour undertaken to isla coiba. The tour was organized by the hotel santa catalina. The trip takes approximately 90 minutes. We visited two snorkeling spots and have seen many sea animals. Turtles and rays and many colourful fish. I highly recommend
