Just off Panama’s Pacific coast, nestled between nationally protected marine areas in the Gulf of Montijo, is tropical Cebaco Island.
Seen from above, the island looks like an emerald set in a sea of sapphire. Facing the open Pacific on the island’s Southwestern side.
Catching the eye are rolling hills, palm-fringed coves with sandy beaches, cascading waterfalls and dramatic rock formations.
Humpback and sperm whales migrate through the area and four species of turtles, giant manta rays and dolphins can be spotted just offshore.
The island rises 349 m above sea level. Large swaths of its 80 km2 area are covered in dense rainforest. The northern shore hosts a small fishing community.
Over two dozen tranquil bays and beaches lie hidden along the property’s 12,000 m of winding coastline. The hills offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and mainland.
