Sunday, March 31: Panama City → Pearl Islands (45nm)

Day: 
9

After breakfast we’ll enjoy an excursion to the famous Miraflores series of locks, see liners and cargo delicately and precisely going through the locks, visit the Panama Visitor Center, see the treacherous Gaillard Cut and discover the old city of Panama. Then we’ll transfer to the airport for a short flight over the Pacific to the Pearl Islands where we’ll discover San Jose Island.

In pre-Columbian times, the Pearl Islands were ruled by an Indian king whose subjects' main occupation was pearl-diving. Pearls were used as ornaments and bartering items. Some of the most renowned pearls in the world were collected in these waters.

The Pearl Islands' treasures attracted the greed of the Spaniards. Vasco Nuñez de Balboa, who discovered and gave name to the Pacific Ocean from a point less than 90 kilometers from San Jose Island, was drawn to its wealth in gold and pearls. Later on, the Pearl Islands sheltered famous pirates of different nationalities, who for several centuries looted the wealthy Spanish settlements and fleet.

We’ll transfer to the Hacienda del Mar, known for its unsurpassed beauty, for some relaxation and adventure.
