History

In precolombian times, the Pearl Island were inhabited and ruled by the indians whose main occupations was pearl-diving. These beautiful pearls were used as ornaments and for trading. Some of the most renowed “tear-drop” pearlsever found have been collected in these waters.

The famous conquistator, Vasco Nuñez de Balboa, who gave name to the Pacific Ocean, was attracted to the Pearl Islands from stories of great quantities of gold and pearls held by the indians. During the centuries that followed notorious pirates of many nationalities took shelter in the Pearl Island Archipielago using it as base to attrack the Spanish fleets and the wealthy settlements of mainland Panamá. Today, the Pearl Islands, in the District of Balboa, are visited by tourist from many countries who seek the special beauty of the islands.

San Jose island is the second largest of the archipielag, with an area of 12,000 acres. 44 sq. kilometers (17sq. mi.) and 90kilometers (52 mi.) from Panamá City. The Island is readily accessible by boat (3 hours) or aircraft (20 minutes) as San Jose Island has both sheltered anchorages and a 1525 meter (5000 ft.) airstrip.
