We were picked up at the airport and got a mini tour of the island and then taken to the Contadora Island Inn at the far end of the island. It is about a 20 minute walk from the stores and restaurants so to walk each day to eat was a hassle. We needed to rent a golf cart which...

Max and Clara were great. They pick you up at the airstrip when you land at Contadora. The B&B which sits back on the island is about a 10 minute walk from gorgeous beaches. The B&B itself has hard wood through out adding to its charm. We stayed in the Guacamaya room, which opens out onto a semi private porch...

Wow! This place was so beautiful! You get picked up at the airport and are checked in at the office (this is also where the free internet is) and Max or Clara give you the island tour (it's very small). We stayed in the Pelican room which was housed with 3 other rooms with a communal area + kitchen. We...

When I booked the Contadora Island Inn, it was online and it seemed to be one of the few places to stay on the island. My fiance and I missed the boat to the island and apparently there is only one boat so I emailed them in hopes to avoid a cancellation or change fee - and they had no...

Met some friends on Contadora and we stayed in the Contadora Island Inn. The Island is small and the resturants are few. However, if you want to escape to a true tropical paradise, then this is the place to go. The people, the beaches, the rum, and the cuisine are awesome. Go boating with Pedro....just talk to Tony at Geralds....

My husband and I, and our 7 yr old son, stayed here for 3 days. The island is small and very mellow. It has pristine, EMPTY beaches with clear water. You can go to the beach, boating, snorkel, dive, fish, or do nothing at all. There are just a few places to eat and the cheap, local ones are better...

From the moment I stepped off the 20 seater plane that landed on Isla Contadora's tiny airstrip, Max, one of the inn keepers, made me feel at home. We got a tour of the island before we were taken to our beautiful room, which was one of four in the house we stayed in. We had our own table on...

I wanted to thank Max, Clara, Keith, Marian & even Tony for not only providing a nice, comfortable, safe, clean & cozy place to stay...but for helping us get off the island. Our boat back to Panama City left 20 minutes ahead of schedule so we litterally "missed the boat". So our only option back to PC was a sold...

Contadora Island Inn is a lovely inn on a beautiful island. Our room and bathroom were functional but could have used some additional spaces for shelves or hooks for hanging items. Water pressure can be a big problem and although there might be hot water for about 15 seconds, don't expect the shower to be anything but lukewarm (this really...
