These islands lie in the Gulf of Panama, about 40 miles south of Panama City.
We were happy to leave the city lights behind - we were anchored right off of Panama City, which has its share of skyscrapers and smog.
We arrived in Las Perlas Islands after a four hour voyage. There are very few tourists here! Nothing except water, shorelines, beaches, trees, birds, fish, dolphin. We did see a fishing boat, and went for a long dinghy ride and saw a man working his 'field' on an uninhabited island, and then actually located a village of local people.
With a few houses, laundry drying, a fire burning, children playing with toy boats. We also located a lovely waterfall that spills into the ocean!
