National Park Coiba

Coiba National Park in Panama is an unparalleled destination for discovering new species and one of the best dive sites. Located off the Pacific coast in the province of Veraguas. In 2005 it was also declared by UNESCO.

Coiba Island encompasses over 2,700 square kilometers of islands, forests, beaches, mangroves and coral reefs. The waters surrounding the island of Coiba are filled with many fish and marine animals. The island is surrounded by one of the largest coral reefs in the Pacific in the Americas. Many of the species that have disappeared from the coast can still be found here. Visitors can take a boat to the island of El Tigre, either San Lorenzo or Santa Catalina, a popular surfing destination for tourists. However, the National Park is far from any city and there are few services available for tourists.
