Isla Mamey is part of the Portobelo district, which is a historic port in the province of Colón and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. When you visit the pristine Caribbean island of Isla Mamey, you’ll find palm-lined beaches and warm turquoise water. Make time to visit the other areas of Portobelo, as well, for a glimpse at the area’s rich history and cultural traditions, such as the Festival of the Black Christ.
Take in the natural splendor of the island with a snorkeling or diving excursion, or head to western side of the island for great surfing. You can also make a night of it by camping on the island.
Take a bus or car from Panama City to Portobelo. When you get there, take time to explore the historic forts and pirate history of the town. When you’re done, you can travel to Isla Mamey by boat.
