It's been a week since I've returned from The Resort at Isla Palenque...a week of missing the smiling faces of attentive staff, the scrumptious grownup cocktails and Chef Oliver's gastronomic offerings! From the very beginning with a 50 minute boat ride, that put me in the island mood, and the welcome party at the dock I was hooked. We signed up for a package that included several adventures. Lots of hiking...love. Kayaking...love. Sportfishing...love (even if we didn't catch anything, but we did, we were on a boat in the Gulf of Chiriqui just hanging out!). During hikes it was cool to see such biodiversity...going over rocks and marshes to full on jungle. I swear that the monkeys were talking about us.
Overall a great place to vacation if you are the 'let's do it' kind of person. You CAN just sit by the pool all day but the island has so much to offer I suggest you take advantage of it.
