Explore wild 400-acre Isla Palenque from the luxurious oceanfront villa that overlooks its sunrise-facing beach and the Pacific Gulf of Chiriqui.

Isla Palenque is a 400-acre private island in the Pacific Gulf of Chiriqui where award-winning architecture, environmental stewardship, sumptuous amenities and an array of adventure activities come together for luxurious immersion in nature.

The island itself is a pristine tropical paradise of lush jungle and old-growth forest, mangrove ecosystems and primordial lagoons, with 12 beaches and iconic native wildlife including green iguanas, howler monkeys, and an array of tropical birds, as well as more elusive residents such as anteaters, armadillos, and jungle cats.

Isla Palenque is a place to revel in wild beauty, to recharge and engage with the feeling of discovery as you happen upon the island’s untrodden palm-lined beaches and hidden caves, explore old-growth forest and cast out from the shore to seek thrills on the open sea – and from your oceanside villa in the heart of it all, to enjoy a seamless continuation of the luxuries nature provides.

Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors allow for open-air living, and the sustainable design perches the rooms carefully amongst the existing old-growth forest, for monkey and bird spotting from the spacious outdoor balconies.

Knowledgeable local guides are on-call to lead you on hikes to the island’s natural wonders, take you exploring the 24 uninhabited islands in the Gulf for snorkeling, kayaking or fishing adventures, or simply serve up hand-crafted artisan cocktails while you relax in the two-tier waterfall infinity pool.

The chef from Isla Palenque’s Edén restaurant will be your private chef, and will create a custom daily menu to feature hyper-fresh seafood and seasonal produce from the island’s own organic farm, combined as an array of inspired Panamanian and Latin dishes reinvented for a gourmet culinary experience at the dining pavilion with sweeping ocean views.

The Villa Estate’s 6 eco-luxury rooms – each one unique – connect by outdoor hallways and open-air bamboo walkways in a cascade down the side of a bluff to meet beautiful Playa Primera beach. With indigenous artwork and custom furnishings made by a local artisan carpenter from fallen island hardwoods, the living spaces immerse you in the character of the region amid an overall aesthetic that complements the island’s stunning natural beauty.

The sweeping ocean views from the Villa Estate frame an oceanic wilderness stretches out from the island’s volcanic shores in the 14,740-hectare Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park, where 24 uninhabited island gems welcome snorkelers, divers, anglers, and beachgoers to revel in their wild neighborhood.

In addition to guided hiking and kayaking excursions on and around the island, The Resort at Isla Palenque’s knowledgeable local guide is on call to plan custom ocean adventures such as island hopping, whale-watching (seasonal), and sportfishing, as well as trips to the mainland for coffee-tasting, ziplining in the nearby highlands, and visits to an indigenous village where you’ll learn local crafts and enjoy the humble hospitality of Panama’s largest indigenous tribe, the Ngöbe-Buglé. A truly unparalleled Panama travel experience awaits you in private island paradise at Isla Palenque.

Only 15 minutes by boat from the small fishing village of Boca Chica, Isla Palenque is easily accessible by a short domestic flight from Panama City or cross-country drive through the breathtaking Chiriqui Province.
