The Pearl Islands had long been an undiscovered gem, that was until Survivor shone a spotlight on them by using the islands to host their show.  The predominant X put the Peal Islands on the International travellers map and have given rise to luxury developments and tourism, but these stunning sandy paradise islands still maintain their pristine, somewhat Robinson Crusoe spirit. There are now daily flights to the islands and its hotels are amongst the best in Panama.
