Beaches

The Azuero Peninsula is bordered by a ribbon of secluded wide tan sand beaches.

Azueros fronts several beaches including Playa Los Destiladeros and Playa Escondido.

The nearby beaches may be explored by foot, mountain bike or horseback. Some of the best surfing beaches can be found in the province especially in Playa Venado, a half hour drive from Azueros.

Islands

Seven kilometers off the coast of Pedasí´s Playa Arenal, the Isla Iguana Wildlife Refuge is a fifty-eight hectare dry tropical forest with nine-kilometers of coasts ideal for diving and snorkeling along one of the best preserved coral reefs in the Gulf of Panama.

Boats may be chartered locally to the fine white sand beaches bordered by crystal clear turquoise waters. Flocks of red breasted frigates circle overhead; iguanas, turtles, and other native wildlife peer out from the rich vegetation, and humpback whales swim offshore.

Another island designated as a wildlife refuge, Isla Canas is famous for the turtles that come to nest each year on its beautiful wide beaches, and it is accessed by boat through the mangrove covered canals.

Fishing

The blue waters of the Pacific off the Azuero Peninsula, Panama´s famed ¨Tuna Coast¨, offer some of the finest fishing.

The rich tropical aquatic environment is teaming with fish including Dolphin, Yellowfin Tuna, Black Marlin, Blue Marlin, Wahoo, Amberjack, Sierra Mackerel, Grouper and Snapper and whales, orcas and porpoises can be spotted on these excursions.

Cultural attractions

Rich in folkloric history, the capital city of Los Santos is Las Tablas, famous for its carnivals and believed to be the birth place of the Pollera, the intricately woven traditional Panamanian dress. Local workshops provide visitors with the opportunity to view this craft first-hand.

There are also museums, national parks, churches and archeological sites to be explored.

Among the many festivals and religious celebrations are: Carnival beginning the fourth day before Ash Wednesday ; National Festival of the Pollera & Festival of the Patron Santa Librada, end of July, and Feria de Azuero, late April-early May.
