Undiscovered & Unspoiled
The province of Chiriquí is located on Panama’s northwest side bordering Costa Rica and the Pacific Ocean. Between its peaks, valleys and rolling countryside, you’ll find the picturesque town of Boquete and the Barú Volcano, Panama’s tallest.
But away from Chiriquí province’s cloud forests, coffee and quetzals is a place only a few have come to discover.
The Gulf of Chiriquí. The Gulf of Chiriquí and Isla Palenque represent one of the world’s few remaining “undiscovered” places. With tens of thousands of acres of unspoiled coastal and marine environments, there’s plenty to experience.
Home to the Gulf of Chiriquí National Marine Park, the calm, warm waters are dotted with dozens of uninhabited islands, multiple coral reefs and an abundance of wildlife.
Dare to venture off the beaten path to the Chiriquí coast. Just 1-hour from Enrique Malek International Airport in David (DAV), this journey is an adventure worth taking.
Dolphins & Marine Life
“The most amazing thing about Isla Palenque is the setting. Everything is surrounded by trees and nature and the soft ocean waves can be heard everywhere. It’s the perfect combination of both worlds for jungle lovers and ocean lovers. The many trails around the island lead to empty beaches, lagoons, mangrove areas and paradisiacal places. After traveling through Panama leading tours for over a decade, I can certainly tell you that there is no other place like this in the country.”
