Isla Saboga is located in Panama’s Pearl Islands, a group of 200 islands of stunning beauty. Perhaps nowhere else in the world today can you find islands of such unspoiled natural beauty only 35 miles from a major city. If you can imagine what Hawaii must have been like before all the tourism and growth of the 20th century, you can begin to appreciate what the Pearl Islands has to offer.
The beaches are pristine. The sea around is impeccable, with many species of marine animals, whales, dolphins and turtles among them. Fishing is a popular activity in this area for residents and visitors. There are numerous rivers and several natural springs on the larger islands.
It is noteworthy that some of the world’s best natural pearls are formed in oysters found near the hundreds of islands that make up the archipelago of Las Perlas.
The islands are mostly uninhabited, except for a few fishing communities, and only a few islands have any tourist facilities.
Development on Saboga is being carefully controlled to preserve the natural tropical feel of the island and its tropical forests. As the island develops we’ll be adding more and private homes, and Bed-and-Breakfasts to our portfolio of private vacation rentals. Cuna de Vida Las Perlas, Isla Saboga’s first vacation hotel, will be coming on-line in the coming months as homes and infrastructure are completed and made available.
Scheduled to open in February, 2013, Cuna de Vida Las Perlas will offer a luxurious eco-sensitive vacation experience for those looking for something out of the ordinary!
