Isla Popa, or Popa Island in English, is located in the Southern archipelago of Bocas del Toro, and is one of the 6 largest islands. It is 25 miles long.
Popa is the most populated of all the islands by the Ngobe Bugle indigenous tribe, hosting 3 villages: Popa 1, Popa 2 and Isla Tigre. You’ll also find a few Ex-pats who have made this paradise home. There are some rough-terrain trails through the jungle, and these are fun for exploring, but to get around the island we all travel by boat.
The interior of the island is covered in gorgeous jungle and is teeming with wildlife. Madonna MUST have been here when she sang the song “La Isla Bonita”!
