Isla Taboga

Isla Taboga is known as the "Island of Flowers" for the abundant gardens of its small town, San Pedro, spread along the steep hillside of its eastern shore. The traditional celebrations on Isla Taboga are on June 29, when the local parishioners celebrate San Pedro's day, and July 16, when the Virgen del Carmen is celebrated with a procession through town and a boat caravan around the island. Taboga has no pharmacy, and only a very small clinic. There is no ATM on Taboga, so stock up on cash before heading there—Isla Perico, near the ferry dock on the Amador Causeway, has ATMs.
