Isla Palenque is a one-of-a-kind luxury resort located on a 400-acre private island in Panama’s Gulf of Chiriqui. The island long-served as a sacred site to pre-Columbian tribes, who named their sanctuary “Palenque”. As a result, its primary rainforest was largely preserved, which makes it a place of astounding natural beauty. Today, eight luxury Casitas dot the island’s seven secluded beaches, providing modern luxury and comfort to travelers seeking an unspoiled tropical paradise. Each Casita is located in a palm grove with direct access to the ocean. Here, days are spent lounging in sunny hammocks followed by paddling in the warm waters of the nearby beaches.

For those looking for adventure, there are miles of jungle trails waiting to be explored deep within Isla Palenque’s unspoiled rainforest – home to hundreds of species of plants, flowers, animals, and birds. Beyond its borders lies Chiriqui National Marine Park with dozens more untouched islands just waiting to be discovered – some boasting iconic crescent moon beaches; others hold coral reefs perfect for snorkeling; from August through October during their annual migration pattern magnificent Humpback whales can even be seen breaching just offshore!
