    Copa airlines is starting flights to David, making it easier than ever to get to Isla Palenque

    (For quick advice on choosing between Copa and Air Panama for your in-country flights, check out our advice in this post.)After four long years, it’s finally happened: Copa airlines (who codeshares with United) is starting flights from Panama City’s international airport at Tocumen (PTY) to David, twice per day. Reservations are available already for dates starting 15-Jan-15. So you can now buy a ticket from anywhere in the world straight to David (DAV), and not deal with driving across town to the regional airport and flying on Air Panama.This is obviously great news for both hotel guests and homeowners, as it makes it easier to get to Isla Palenque in one day from anywhere in the Western Hemisphere, and will provide a small boost to land and home values (it is also the first...MORE

    [post_content] => Isla Palenque is a 400-acre island in Panama, covered with mature forests, lagoons, mangroves and beach ecosystems. A highly varied topography complements this varied natural environment. You may become intimately acquainted with one corner of the island by experiencing its unique qualities… yet you won’t necessarily understand any other part of the island. Isla Palenque may be difficult to get to know, but for this same reason, the island rewards extensive hiking.

Saying “400 acres of highly varied landscape” doesn’t actually give you a feel for Palenque’s size. Nor do our descriptions of “low-impact development” show you just how low-density the Resort at Isla Palenque is, especially compared to almost every other resort. Unless you’ve been involved in development planning, architecture, or a similar field, you probably need to see it to believe it.

Personally, I find it useful to compare Palenque to other places I know in order to get an intuitive feel for its size and scale. Google Earth’s satellite imagery helps me realize Palenque’s unspoiled wilderness and the size and shape of this island I’ve explored.

Take a virtual tour through this slideshow. See if it helps you picture Isla Palenque and appreciate the size of the island, as well as the inexhaustible opportunities for adventure in its diverse environments!
