Day 1: Arrival in Isla Palenque

From the sleepy fishing village of Boca Chica, the family island adventure begins. Hop in the boat for a 15-minute ride taking you far from the beaten path to the undiscovered shores of Isla Palenque. Spend your first afternoon in private island paradise exploring the beaches, searching for wildlife,and enjoying some sunshine by the pool.

By night, savor a first taste of fresh Panamanian food at the beachside restaurant. Despite the remote location, the locally-inspired dishes pack quality ingredients, organic goodness and plenty of flavor in every bite. And from hungry little adventurers to grown-up gourmets, the chefs know how to impress a refined palate

Day 2: Rock Fishing & Panamanian Cooking

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
After a tasty breakfast, grab some fishing rods and follow the noisy howler monkeys along the shores to the surrounding rock pools and shallows. You'll be taught how to fish as the locals do, then it’ll be game on.

Return with your little haul for an authentic Palenque-style ceviche making class in the afternoon. It’s a great way to connect with the culinary culture, try the local ingredients and of course enjoy your very own tasty creation.

Day 3: Secrets of the Island

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Unearth the island’s wonders and secrets while hiking a maze of nature trails with friendly and knowledgeable guides. You’ll pass by ancient trees, hidden beaches, and untouched lagoons, and hear all about the indigenous past, long before the days as a private island resort. Prepare to be both surprised and inspired.

After a morning out exploring, you’ll have earned some blissful beach relaxation. Swim with the kids in the calm waters, or while the hours away in a colorful hammock. Chase crabs along the palm-fringed shores or build sand castles until sunset. Beach time is always time well spent.

Day 4: Island Hopping

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Rise and shine bright and early for today’s adventure – no family island getaway would be complete without a little island hopping. Head out by boat into the Gulf of Chiriquí National Marine Park to explore the pristine shores of Isla Palenque’s neighbouring islands. In these protected waters,you’ll rarely see another boat around.

Stop off at two nearby idyllic islands for a relaxing swim in the crystal waters, some snorkelling, and of course some beach bumming. Keep your eyes peeled on the way back – it’s not uncommon to spot jumping fish, rays, sea birds, and even dolphins and whales at certain times of the year.

Day 5: Departure

  • 1 Breakfast
Hop in a boat for a 15-minute ride back to Boca Chica.
