IMPROVEMENTS AND UPGRADES ON TABOGA

The government of Panama has invested nearly $2,000,000 in infrastructure projects and tourism facilities. The pier, the entrance and the beach have been renovated and received new public bathrooms all inaugurated in 2018. The local government is continuing the work by adding impressive sculptures of natural elements which can be found around the island as well as areas to show off the flowers the island is so famous for.

EXISTING ISLAND FACILITIES

The island water plant is equipped with a reverse osmosis system. A desalination system also ensures pure drinking water. A new pier has been built over the last year. An excellent health clinic with doctor, nurse, pharmacy and lab is well-established. A police station and a maritime authority provide security on the island. For the convenience of tourists and residents alike, Taboga now has a Banco Nacional ATM.

ACTIVITIES AND AMENITIES ON TABOGA

Tourists and Panamanians escape from bustling Panama City on a short 30-minute ferry to Isla Taboga where there are no cars, no aggravation, just peace and tranquility. Taboga has the closest beach to Panama City, so instead of driving one to two hours - or more - in weekend traffic to the Pacific beaches, smart people take the Taboga Express Fast Ferry and head to the very accessible beaches. After arriving, visitors can sun bathe on white sand beaches, swim in its sparkling clear waters, and hike the mountain through the natural forest. Taboga is called the Island of Flowers, an island of perennial blossoms, a history from the 1500's, and a very special paradise. The island has roughly 1,000 residents, but the population swells on weekends with the arrival of local and international tourists.

Lying in the path of the Trade Winds, gentle sea breezes are always present, with temperatures usually in the 70’s and 80’s. Visitors stroll along its flower lined paths, walk its pristine nature trails, smell the roses, taste the forbidden fruit, and just explore and discover. The 3 km Spanish Cross Hike begins just minutes from Cerrito Tropical. The current staff has experience helping arrange boating, fishing, snorkeling, or hiking outings with local guides with an advanced reservation, plus an enjoyable day having a relaxing massage. In summer months more watersports are available such as kayaking, banana boats, and is a great spot for stand up paddling (SUP equipment rentals as yet). Restaurant services are available for breakfast and dinner upon reservation. Several international level restaurants, casual restaurants like the Calaloo Fishbar, as well as a variety of local food kiosks can also be found on the island.
