Discover the Gulf of Chiriqui
While Panama’s Pacific and Caribbean coasts are starting to crowd up with behemoth resorts, happily there is still sanctuary to be found in the Gulf of Chiriquí, a seductive sliver of Central America.
Gulf of Chiriqui
South of the city of David in Panama’s western province is home to thousands of pristine islands and unspoiled beaches. The Marine Park was founded in 1994 to protect 14,730 hectares of extensive coral reef, mangrove swamps, and marine meadows. Another significant feature of this park is its dozens of idyllic islands carpeted in forest and lined with slender coconut palms.
