At first the Pearl Islands were reserved only for the rich and the famous and getting to the islands was expensive, just like the hotels and resort. But now the tourism industry is booming and the first ferries from mainland Panama have made transportation easy and relatively cheap.
These ferries can take you to the Islands for a small price. Nowadays there are more hotels, hostels, resorts and restaurants to choose from on multiple islands. Some of which are expensive and others are affordable. The popularity of the Isla de Las Perlas was boosted by the CBS Broadcasting television show Survivor.
Domestic airlines Air Panama and Aero Perlas run frequent flights between Panama City and Contadora, Isla San José and Isla del Rey. Another noteworthy island is Isla Saboga, you can find traditional Island culture here. The Pearl Islands are located in the North Pacific Ocean in the Gulf of Panama. A trip to the Islands is not that far from mainland Panama.
The Pearl Islands are located on the coordinates 8.3333° N, 79.1167° W not far from the equator. Therefore, the climate on the Pearl Islands is different than in the US and most other countries. There are only two seasons, a dry and wet season. This doesn’t always apply since some years receive rain all year around and sometimes the islands experience a dry year. Some of the benefits being located so close to the equator are the stable temperature all year. Panama does not experience hurricanes and is not prone to earth quakes, for than main reason the Panama cannel was built in Panama.
