Christmas and New Year
The two weeks surrounding Christmas and the New Year are the busiest weeks of the years for tourism here in the Pearl Islands. Hotels and vacation rentals on neighboring Contadora usually begin to book up 6 months in advance, and rates are higher. Some will also have minimum stay requirements of up to 5 nights. So if a Christmas or New Year vacation is in your plans, be sure to book early.
The local village at Christmas brings their icon out of the local church and parades around the village in a traditional ceremony that is worth seeing.
