  • Best option if you want to get to Isla Palenque right away. 90% of the time, we find this is the best way for most travelers.
  • Fly into Panama City’s Tocumen International Airport (PTY)
  • Take a brief, connecting flight to Enrique Malek Airport (DAV) in David, Panama (60 mins). There’s an additional fee for airport transfer.
  • From David Airport, we’ll meet you and bring you to the port in Boca Chica (60 mins.)
  • Set sail from Boca Chica on a short, 15-min. boat ride to Isla Palenque
  • Best option if you’re traveling within Panama beforehand.

  • Best option if you’re coming from Costa Rica.
  • Take a brief, connecting flight from San Jose International Airport (SJO) to Golfito Airport (GLF), Costa Rica (50 mins.)
  • We’ll meet you at Golfito Airport and bring you to the border in Paso Canoas in Costa Rica (60 mins.). *The crossing will require you to switch cars, but not to worry — we’ll assist you with a safe and efficient border crossing into Panama.

Getting Here is Easy

“We organized transport through the hotel and, without a hitch, the Palenque-drivers got us in and out of Panama City, then to our flight to David, and finally by van/boat to Isla Palenque – ready for our welcome drink in this unique, beautiful jungle setting.”
