It is the season for humpback whales at this time a year, so there is a good chance to see mother and calfs, listen to singing males, and watch whales breaching in the ocean.
LAS PERLAS + PANAMA:
The Pearl Islands are mostly uninhabited, so there is a rich birdlife and lots of flora and fauna around the islands. They are known for the white and endless sandy beaches. The marine life around the Pearl Islands is blooming and rich with lots of fish, rays, dolphins, turtles and migratory humpback whales.
The islands are located in the Panama Gulf so they are protected from the Pacific Ocean, making it a safe haven for marine life when you snorkel.
The locals call the islands of Islas de las Perlas, a name derived from Spanish colonial times. The Spanish Conquistadors discovered the islands in 1503 and gave the islands its name because of the large amounts of pearls found on them.
Panamanian law does everything to preserve island life by offering ecotourism to protect the islands' natural flora and fauna and rich wildlife.
Panama in Central America has much more to offer than the famous canal that connects the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean via the Caribbean Sea - even though many who travel to Panama choose to experience the country on a cruise through the Panama Canal. The country also has miles of Caribbean beaches and Indian cultures that still live as centuries ago. All available to most because of the country's really good infrastructure and a growing economy, which makes Panama surprisingly safe and easy to travel.
