Cristóbal Island (in Spanish: Isla San Cristóbal, or Christopher's Island the Spanish rendition of Christopher Columbus' name) is a mostly deforested 37 km2 island located south of Isla Colón,[1] in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago, Panama. It is home to the indigenous Ngäbe or Guaymí people and a small number of expatriates.

Laguna Bocatorito, also known as Dolphin Bay, lies on the east side of the island.
