About 119 kilometers from Panama City and 13.5 kilometers from the city of Colon, is Isla Grande, the largest of a series of islands in the area and the most visited by tourists.
This natural beauty is an imposing mass of exuberant vegetation of palm trees, white sand beaches in whose waters you can see the whole range of blue. It has an approximate extension of 5 kilometers by 1 1/2 of width.
The best beach on the island is the Isla Grande hotel, it has clear sand and it is located in a small bay that makes the sea there very calm. This hotel has a few cabins facing the sea, are quite basic, with an excellent location steps from the sea. If you are going to spend the day, you will be charged the entrance fee ($ 8 for the adult pass) and with that you will have access to the beach, restaurant, bathrooms and shower.
