Everything you need, right nearby. Maybe when you’re at home, this means there’s a bank on your block, a grocery store down the street, and entertainment in your neighborhood. But when you take a luxury vacation in the beautiful country of Panama, the humdrum requirements of everyday life evaporate (or are taken care of for you by your attentive concierge). So what are your new needs?
Intimate connection with nature… eye-opening experiences in the wilderness… feeling like you’ve got a paradise island all to yourself – just to name a few. For convenient access to all of this and more, you can’t do much better than stay at The Resort on Isla Palenque, where right in your neighborhood you’ll find the Gulf of Chiriqui’s most precious gem: Parque Nacional Marino Golfo de Chiriquí.
This national marine park encompasses 14,740 hectares of tropical forest and aquatic ecosystems, with over two dozen islands and 19 coral reefs. Now, I know (and you probably do too) that you can find lush jungles, abundant wildlife, and warm, beautiful waters to explore pretty much anywhere you travel in Panama – but the key word at Parque Nacional Marino Golfo de Chiriqui is proximity. From Isla Palenque, you can follow your fancy into the park, exploring other paradisiacal islands, walking along the soft white sands of their untouched beaches, venturing into the jungle just beyond the shore to glimpse exotic birds and entertaining monkeys… And when the shimmering waters lure you in, you’ll find equally varied sights while snorkeling and diving in the area. Everything you need, right nearby.
If you’re planning to vacation in Panama, this incredible natural destination is a must-see. View the slideshow for a sneak preview of your adventures in the Gulf of Chiriqui National Marine Park:
