A visit to Isla Palenque

By Karla Yau

This weekend, I have had the chance to participate in a wonderful visit to Isla Palenque at Chiriqui Gulf.

The entire island itself is amazing and I already miss this paradise. This place is a balanced combination of forest and beach. Also I have to mention the staff, they are a group of young and full of strength persons willing to help and coordinate all, even the small things.

This paradise is located approximately at one hour of boat transfer from Pedregal, David. We pass through different mangles to reach the wild Ocean and arrive at our destination, Isla Palenque Resort.

As we were approaching to the island, we were warmly welcomed by the staff with a refreshing towel.

After regained strength with a exquisite lunch by a Panamanian chef, we had the sunset tour.

It was getting dark while we were hiking and the group was wondering because thought that would have to head back. When Rodolfo heard us, he just smile and told us not to wonder that everything is set.

Arriving the beach, the guide climbed up the palms to get some “pipas” (Coconuts) for us. Very refreshing! Continuing with our tour, we had a very nice spot below a shade of a big tree with food on the table and some drinks. All this waiting for us accompanied with a big smile of the staff.

And just relaxing and enjoying the beach, we saw the beautiful sunset.

The day didn’t end here. At night the restaurant had a very romantic view. Unfortunately, I wasn’t there in a date. But still enjoyed the dinner with a cocktail and the companionship of my boss.

The next morning, we were awoken by the howls of the monkeys. A very nice and different way to get up and start a new day.

I’ll be glad to continue writing my experience but instead why don’t you visit it and tell me your version of this history.
