Isla Taboga is a historical island, 20 km (12 miles) off the coast from Panama City and an important destination for people from the capital. The island boasts a nice beach, as well as some protected rain forest. Isla Taboga is home to one of the largest colonies of brown pelicans in Latin America.

Isla Taboga is also known as the Island of Flowers, as it is filled with sweet-smelling blooms at certain times of year. Taboga has a long history and the island was settled even before Panama City was. There is a small church on Isla Taboga, which is claimed to be the second-oldest one in the Western Hemisphere. Taboga is also the place where Pizarro set sail for Peru in 1524. Every year on 16 July, a festival of nautical processions and celebrations is held on the island.

Isla Taboga has boat connections with Balboa.
