First the Pearl Islands were reserved only for the rich and the famous, since the tourism industry is growing and the first ferries from mainland Panama were there. These ferries can take you to the Islands for a small price. The popularity of the Isla de Las Perlas was boosted by the CBS Broadcasting television show Survivor.
One and a half hours from Panama City is Bolaños. An island of extreme beauty, which attracts both national tourism and foreign visitors.
