Isla Iguana

http://www.visitpanama.com/destino/isla-iguana/

Isla Iguana is a 52-hectare wildlife reserve only a 20-minute boat ride from Playa Arenal in Pedasi.  It is inhabited by a variety of crabs, lizards and frigates.

The island was used during WWII by the US military for testing bombs.

It has beautiful white sand beaches and crystal-clear water filled with marine life.  It’s surrounded by one of the largest coral reefs in this part of Panama.  This is the place to go for snorkeling or scuba diving.

The cost is $70 round trip and an appointment is not needed as you can use any of the captains at the beach.  The best time to go is low tide because there will be more beach.  There are no restaurants on the island and the bathrooms are primitive.  Contact us if you need to rent beach chairs, umbrellas or ice chests.

There is also a $10 per person park entrance fee you will be asked to pay upon arrival.
