isla palenque : panama

IPaerialPalenque Next on our Panama trip, we spent a while on the Pacific side in the Gulf of Chiriqui. We stayed at a beautiful newly-opened eco-resort, Isla Palenque, which is situated on a secluded 400-acre island. The island is home to dense jungle, mangroves and quiet beaches. Plus the not-so-quiet howler monkeys. They were everywhere! So cute to see them swinging from the tree tops -- and slightly intimidating to hear them howl deeply in packs up above. Yikes!
