With a doubt that something will go wrong we decided to book a 5-star bunker in Mexico after a week stay on Taborcillo. "Unfortunately,"- I should state! The access from Europe A little tip: take a small break during your journey so that you don’t get very tired traveling so many hours! We made a stop in Panama City and... More

But second time I realized it... More

My husband talked me into staying at this resort which apparently is a favourite of german tourists.  It sounded interesting and maybe a bit of an adventure.  The drive from the Albrook airport in Panama City is about a hour and a half drive followed by a 10 minute boat ride to Isla Taborcillo, the small island previously owned by...

A bit if history first: John Wayne used to own this island many years ago. The island served as his getaway, but it is now owned by an Austrian gentleman who has created a "John Wayne" world in the middle of nowhere. Okay, this place was just wacky. We drove through a small fishing village in Panama to get to... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come to Taborcillo, a small private island off the Pacific coast of Panama that once belonged to John Wayne! When you come to Taborcillo you will be fascinated by the island's virgin nature, its long white beaches and the old mango trees planted by the "Duke" himself! Diverse fauna is waiting for you, too: exotic bird species, huge iguanas will cross your way and big sea turtles come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand. ... more   less
