History

Contadora was where the Spanish would count the pearls from their harvesting operations in Panama, hence the name of the island.

In 1980, the Iranianmarker shah, Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, briefly lived in Contadora in the period from his exile from power until his death.

The Contadora Peace Accords, which laid the foundation for peace in Central America, were negotiated in this island during the 1980s. Hence the Contadora Group owes their name from the island's name.
