Isla Saboga is a nature lover's paradise. Unspoiled beaches and tropical jungle only 35 miles from Panama City, at the gateway to the Pearl Islands. If you can imagine what Hawaii must have been like 100 years ago, before all the development during the 20th century, you can perhaps begin to appreciate what Isla Saboga and the Pearl Islands has to offer. It is perhaps one of the world's last unspoiled archipelagos, and the fact that it is only 35 mil...

El Remanso on Isla Saboga is one of Panama’s best kept secrets! If you are looking for an extremely quiet and secluded place to totally relax in paradise, look no further. Lee and Jennifer will tend to all of your needs on the island, from meeting you at the dock, giving you a tour of the island, making sure you...

We were again lucky with the quality guests we had visit Saboga. The Siepmanns' were perfect guests and very easy to please. Guests like the Siepmanns makes it easy to want to keep hosting. We hope they return!

Unspoilt but comfortable. There are very few places that can boast of that. In Jennifer and Lee's House you have all the facilities of an impressive house few steps away from paradise beaches where rarely you are going to find someone else. The Island is marvellous, the spot unsurpassable, and the attention and hospitality of Jennifer and Lee the BEST!...

Thanks for your wonderful review. Come back any time!

About the neighbourhood
Isla Saboga is an undeveloped island in the bay of Panama, just 35 miles from Panama City. Dozens of secluded, deserted beaches and miles of trails through the tropical jungle are here to explore. Or you can just relax on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Saboga was the filming location for three seasons of CBS's Survivor TV series, and it retains all the beauty and natural environment. If you can imagine what Hawaii must have been like 100 years ago, Saboga and the Pearl Islands will give you a hint.
Getting around
Most transportation on the island is by foot. There are numerous trails and dirt roads that lead to secluded beaches to explore, and the village on the other side of the island is only a 10 minute walk away. We have a couple of Polaris 4-wheelers and are happy to run guests over to town for a quick trip, or to show you the island.

Most other transportation is by panga, the small fishing boats that the locals use to take guests fishing, snorkeling, whale watching or island hopping. We have several pangueros we use and are happy to help arrange trips. Pangas can come pick you up at the beach directly in front of the house.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Contadora: 5.0 km
Ferry: Saboga Ferry Dock: 1.5 km
There are two ferries that depart from the city and come out to the islands. One leaves from the Trump Tower hotel, the other from the Balboa Yacht Club in Amador. Both ferries depart at approximately 7:30 AM and return to the city in the afternoon. Both ferries come to the dock here on Saboga where we will meet you and bring you back to the house.

Air Panama also has daily flights to Contadora from the airport in Albrook.
