Christmas and New Year
The two weeks surrounding Christmas and the New Year are the busiest weeks of the year 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 than normal high-season rates. Some will also have minimum stay requirements of up to 4-5 nights. If a Christmas or New Year vacation is in your plans, be sure to book early.
At Christmas, the local villagers bring the icons out of the local church and parade around the village in a traditional ceremony that is worth seeing.
