Isla Palenque is a special place that combines a fantastic location and spectacular scenery with wonderfully crafted rooms and tremendous service. I think that Ben and his team have created something truly unique, not only in creating a wonderful little hotel in the midst of spectacular beaches and deep jungle but in enthusing a staff with a warmth and hospitality that makes the visit so much more special. Highly recommend the guided walks and kayaks if for no other reason than to get to know the guides and the island and then just explore on your own. Definitely get on a boat and Isla Secas, while a haul, should be part of the itinerary. Not every activity was individually spectacular (ie tree climbing was pretty short in height and duration) but all of them offered the chance to hang out with a staff that seems to genuinely to love the island. It is not for everyone and try to come at a time when they are offering discounts but man they are doing it right.
