“A Peaceful Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2006

The Contadora Island Inn provided a peaceful escape from our hectic U.S. life. My husband, teenage son and I found the inn to be very calming and comfortable, like a home away from home. The owners, Keith and Marion, visited with us, answered our questions, offered advice on island activities, ate at a local resturant with us, and took us on the "Survivor tour" of some uninhabited neighboring islands. Their warmth, friendship and enthusiasm for life on the island was contagious! The inn was located on a tree lined street and we were able to walk to several beaches and through residential areas of beautiful houses. In the evenings, my family watched movies in the living area or sat out on the back deck overlooking a tropical wooded area. Since we enjoy nature, beaches, being outdoors, having beauty around us and at times, "getting away from it all," this was the perfect place to stay for our perfect vacation.

Stayed June 2005

We visited Contadora Island in July, following several days in Boca del Toro and a visit to Boquette (which was beautiful!). Several small airlines fly into Contadora. We stayed at the Contadora Island Inn B & B while there and found it to be spotless, the bedrooms well cooled with individual thermostats and ceiling fans, and the price a super value ($70 per night). A full, cooked Panamanian breakfast (incl. fresh fruit and homemade bread) was served by a delightful local. Scooters and bicycles were available for getting to the beaches, and the friendly manager arranged a scuba class with a local dive master. The island is a paradise for divers, bird watchers, and most especially, fishing buffs! Also, see where they filmed the 'Survivor' series... there were cast members from the European version all over the island when we were there. This is NOT THE PLACE for fancy dining, lively nightlife, or shopping... go to escape, kick back, and not be found! It is always balmy, so bring your flip flops, shorts, and bathing suits, and see some of the most beautiful sunsets ever beheld.
