For almost 100 years, Coíba was inhabited only by criminals and political prisoners. Now it’s one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet.
Beautiful but extremely dangerous—that’s how many Panamanians think of the island of Coíba 30 miles from their southern coast.
The largest island of the 38 islands contained in Coíba National Park, Coíba is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. Containing just over 120,000 acres, it makes those who visit its shores feel as if they’re stepping back in time to an era when the Earth was undeveloped. In addition to the 1,450 plant species on the island, Coíba’s forests are filled with hundreds of unique animals, and pristine coral reefs lie just beyond Coíba’s beaches.

PANAMA CITY, Panama – Our speedboat trail of white foam stretches in a wide arc far behind as we race across Lake Gatun. We’re searching for monkeys on the islands scattered across this massive man-made lake.
As the boat nears the promisingly named Monkey Island, it pulls close to the bank where several tree branches overhang the water. There!
The ranger whispers that the little creatures with red patches of hair behind their ears are tamarin monkeys. They scamper through the lower branches, and two jump onto the bow of the boat, jostling for tidbits of food that the guide unfortunately offers. Still, we get a close-up view. The tamarins soon retreat, and the guide points out black-mantled howler monkeys, including a baby, up in the foliage.
