In the Archipelago of Las Perlas we find the Contadora Island, now this is a real Perl and we recommend a visit there. Some Hotels and Restaurants are available, just make reservations before hand as the facilities are limited. The Island can be reached by a ferry service from the Amador Cause Way or by Airplaine from the Albrook National Airport. The Island features some beautiful beaches and even whale watching from there is possible in the right season.
