Feb. 17, 2009 - PRLog -- Private island.  Private being the keyword here. Most people dream that some day if they were to win the lottery they could purchase their very own private island. Until dreams like this come true we have to accept that most of these private islands are either for the wealthy celebrities or for the billionaire tycoons of the world. Mel Gibson paid $15 million for his cliff-ringed Fijian retreat.  Richard Branson bought Necker Island. Marlon Brando bought Tetiaroa in French Polynesia (the island is currently being turned into an eco-resort).

"World's most expensive island!", this was the title that caught Don Halbert, of BuyingCR , attention. "I thought for a moment. Wait a second. We have a listing off the coast of Panama for a private island for $100 million and this one is a mere $39.7 million."

Forbes issued an article in 2006 of the most expensive private islands for sale in the world. At the top of that list was  Isla de sa Ferradura for $39.7 million.

Costa Rica real estate specialist Maic Salazar who is a broker with BuyingCR (, a real estate company out of Dominical, Costa Rica, had this to say about San Jose Island. "When you are in the market for a private island, you are on another level of investment where price isn't so much of a concern as is the location. Isla San Jose has the location, size and we will even throw in 35 white sand beaches for you to enjoy when you escape to your dream retreat in Central America. No other listing in the world for a private island has more to offer than San Jose Island, Panama."

The island is located close to the continental shelf where the ocean floors drop to over 9 000 ft, offering unsurpassed deepsea fishing. Over 35 beautiful white coral, ebony black and radiant gold beaches and coves surround San Jose island. The temperate and calm torquois green waters of the gulf of Panama envelope the island, making it the perfect spot for scuba diving or snorkeling. The latest resort to open in the Perlas Islands on Isla San Jose is the beautiful Hacienda del Mar. This eco resort offers a variety of different accommodations including beachfront villas.

What private island would be without it's very own private airstrip? San Jose Island features a 5000 linear foot airstrip. There are 55 miles of developed roads covering the 14,000 acre island. Today, even remote islands have cellular phone service, and if yours doesn't, you can get telephone, Internet and television service via satellite.
