I first visited breathtakingly beautiful San Jose Island was two years ago. After arriving at the Tocumen airport in Panama City, less than a three hour flight from Miami, I jumped on an Air Panama flight for the short 20 minute flight to the island. As we were flying over the Gulf of Panama, I was amazed that I could see schools of fish from the air.
As we circled over the island and came down the 5,000 linear feet landing strip, I had the insane notion that Tatoo was standing on the island somewhere saying “De plane, de plane!”. We were picked up and driven through beautiful jungle canopy to the boutique resort, Hacienda del Mar
I spent four days there and can’t wait to go back! It is currently for sale and would make a spectacular world-class resort destination.
