Mention was made of the small island of Taboga. Very pretty place. The ferry can be taken there in the morning and return in the mid or late afternoon. The boat ride itself is worth the 10.00 rt fare. There's not a lot to do there but enjoy the sun, have a nice lunch, take in the views. The main hotel is closed. A buy is expected but too late to do any good for this year. The La Tropical is currently the only hotel on the island operating and it is a bit pricy. For the best lunch try the Aquileria on the main path going toward the church on the right hand side. This is a great day trip. The beach by the closed hotel is tremendous and the distant view of Panama City is breathtaking...If you spend 25.00 for the trip and lunch and a bottled water or two I'd be real surprised...It's well worth the day visit.

Mention was made of the small island of Taboga. Very pretty place. The ferry can be taken there in the morning and return in the mid or late afternoon. Take the ferry from the Amador Causeway, turn right after passing the Smithsonian Research facility.The boat ride itself is worth the 10.00 rt fare. There's not a lot to do there but enjoy the sun, have a nice lunch, take in the views. Visit the church built in 1525. The main hotel is closed. A buy is expected at some point soon but too late to do any good for this year. The La Tropical is currently the only hotel on the island operating and it is a bit pricy. For the best lunch try the Aquileria on the main path going toward the church on the right hand side, up from the dock. This is a great day trip type place. That's what the locals do. The beach by the closed hotel is tremendous and the distant view of Panama City is breathtaking..another is by the moored boats but it's a litte more rocky..Great value like all of panama, .If you spend 25.00 for the trip and lunch , a Balboa beer and a bottled water or two I'd be real surprised...It's well worth the day visit. Have fun!

The best hotel is the Contadora Island Inn. The place is run by David and Lisa who are very welcoming and helpful. They will set up any activities that you want to do, they lend snorkel gear to guests. Although it is not on the beach, it is very close to one of the nicest beaches on the island (Playa Ejecutiva). They have a great cook (Iris) who provides a substantial and delicious breakfast every morning.

great thread! I'm planning to go to Panama in August as well - I just don't know where to start! I'm thinking about spending 2 or 3 days in Panama city, and then going to a nice beach.

Contadora Island Inn was exceptional for us. The owners and crew all were helpful and they include breakfast. Contadora is only 1 and 1/2 miles long on hilly roads with 9 smaller beaches and 2 big ones. It was quiet and relaxing, certainly not a lot of night life, but then no crowds at the beach either. We were there in mid February '08
