Remedios is one of the eastern districts of the province of Chiriquí, easily accessible by way of the Interamerican Highway, approximately one hour by car from the city of David.
Remedios is blessed with twelve kilometers of coastline, presenting an extraordinary marine landscape for visitors. Here, marshes are interspersed with estuaries, creating a small group of continental islands with rich vegetation, mangroves and formidable jungles that hug the land and protect the delicate balance of nature.
Observing this ecosystem up close can quickly turn into a scientific excursion, an unforgettable adventure or, maybe, a magical and silent contemplation as you glide through the natural canals formed by the pools of water reaching the sea as you head out to the islands of Silva Adentro, Silva Afuera and La Porcada.
The Remedios shore is also remarkable for its access to the Playa Boca Vieja Wildlife Refuge where you can learn about certain species of turtles.
Panamanians and tourists alike can easily hire a boat in the community of El Puerto (located close to Remedios, near the headwaters) and enjoy a trip through the marine landscape comprising estuaries, beaches and islands, all offering impressive corners for exploration, recreation and adventure.
