Coiba is the largest island in Central America, with an area of 503 km2 (194 sq mi), off the Pacific coast of the Panamanian province of Veraguas. The island was declared a national park in 1992 and in July 2005, Unesco declared the entire Coiba National Park a “World Heritage Site”. Some 760 species of fish have been recorded here, including snappers, barracuda, amberjack, and three types of marlin. Due to all this marine life, the Coiba National Park is an excellent place to snorkel and scuba dive.
