Contadora is a nice island, with nice beaches. But this center is totally useless! They are closed most of the time, and cannot help tourist, especially stranded tourist, since Air Panama does not follow the established times for the airplanes to come in. I recommend you visit Contadora in the ferry, not the planes. Also, it is very expensive to... More

Terrible. Actually, there is no welcome center. The beaches are downbeat. It is a tourist trap. The service is terrible as well. I cannot think about a single thing that I've liked in Isla Contadora.

My husband and I went on a trip with Ferry Las Perlas and spent a great and fun day at this lovely Island. It was our first time and the beauty of this place is just indescribable. The color of the sea so peaceful, the fauna and flora, so many options for staying and eating. It is a small town... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night at Isla Contadora. There were multiple beautiful beaches and we ate some great fresh fish. In addition, we went deep sea fishing one morning. Being completely transparent, I did not see a Welcome Center. The Island isn't very large - we were able to drive our golf cart around the entire island and... More

It was a really nice vacation. Beautiful beaches. But everything is extremely expensive. They don't have a port, if you came with the ferry you have to go down to a boat. If you are young, it's not a problem, but it you are older of you have a disability. It is really a little bit difficult.

They shut off the water several times during the day. We found this out when we got to the hotel. Excuse was Because of a water leak.. Later on... More

Im not sure why people ate reviewing this and saying its here. THERE IS NO VISITORS CENTER. people, please be honest with your reviews and photos. I think maybe the profiles for posters on this are made up? And...there is NOTHING on this is Island, outside of private home that looks this spectacular.
