Only 350 people live on Contadora Island sharing 11 exquisite beaches, tropical rain forest and captivating flora and fauna. The Perlas Islands owe their name to the abundance of pearls that were once found in the surrounding waters. Here, Spaniards found the famed 31-carat pearl known as "La Peregrina" that was given to the Queen of Spain. Snorkel in search of pearls or simply revel in the diversity of marine species found here.
