Some 7km off the coast of Pedasí lies Isla Iguana, an uninhabited wildlife reserve managed by the state and surrounded by the most extensive coral reefs in the Bahía de Panamá, making it one of the best sites for snorkelling and diving in the country. The island has white-sand beaches, crystalline waters and a vast colony of magnificent frigate birds, and between June and December you may see whales. Despite the island’s name, iguanas have become scarce due to the locals’ fondness for their meat – though since the island was declared a national park, their numbers have been increasing.
