Cébaco island is located off the Pacific Coast of the Republic of Panama, in Veraguas Province. The island has a small town of approximately 30 homes on the northern coast of the island. Most locals live off commercial fishing and supplying the mainland with fish.

The only transportation to the island is by boat, however, no commercial ferry operations are available. Local fisherman can be found on the mainland that are able to transport groups to various parts of the island.

The town in Cébaco Island uses solar panels as an energy source that provides electricity to the community, and powers a local public phone and the public phone antenna.

The Gulf of Montijo is well known for its sport fishing (tuna and wahoo), Scuba diving and whale watching. The island is full of wildlife within its forest and some large private properties that have teak plantations. Besides from the fishing Cebaco offers great surfing on the southern coast.

The Cébaco Island is located near another island called Gobernadora, which is smaller.
