Bocas del Toro Archipelago Sights

Swan's Cay (Isla de los Pájaros)

  • Island

Fodor's Review

Swan's Cay is a rocky islet off the north coast of Isla Colón that is commonly visited on boat tours to Boca del Drago. The swan it was named for is actually the red-billed tropicbird, an elegant white seabird with a long tail and bright-red bill that nests on the island in significant numbers. The rugged island has a narrow, natural arch in the middle of it that boatmen can slip through when the seas are calm. The surrounding ocean is a good scuba-diving area.
