Contadora Island lies 65 km SE of the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal. It is part of the Pearl Island Archipelago in the Gulf of Panama. The island’s name, “counter” in Spanish, means that here all the pearls collected from the surrounding islands were counted and sold to the Spaniards; also Spanish conquistadors counted booty before returning to Spain. The island is small, maximum width 2.6 km, and surrounded by beach after beach of white sand, separated by rocky shelves overlooking turquoise waters. Corals are replete with clown fish, angel fish, butterfly fish, red snapper, mahi-mahi, parrot fish, stingrays, and nurse sharks.

Tourists get around by motorcycle, golf cart, rental car or scooter. Its popularity is due to its remoteness and secluded beaches. Inland is rain forest, with everything from iguanas, geckos, moneys, snakes and deer. There’s only a small permanent local population, which serves the tourist industry. Notable are some houses of the very rich who have retired here. Activities include: scuba diving, spear fishing and snorkelling, reef fishing, and water tours amidst the whales and dolphins. On one beach is a stranded old ferry boat fixed into the sand, worth exploring.

The reality show Survivor put the Pearl Islands and Contadora on the map. Famous visitors have included the Shah of Iran, Sophia Loren, Christian Dior, John Wayne, Elizabeth Taylor, and the Kennedy family. In many respects the island’s glory days are well past. But even the occasional abandoned resort has its attractions. Interestingly, a famous pearl, La Peregrina, that has passed through the hands of so many famous people, came from here.
