Breakfast at Isla Palenque – Lunch at Kura – Dinner at Arenas del Mar: All in one day!

Last month, we visited a new potential Cayuga Collection Hotel in Panama. On the way back to Costa Rica, we had a very unique and special experience visiting three of the Cayuga Collection Hotels in one day. Isla Palenque in the Gulf of Chriqui in Panama, Kura Boutique Hotel overlooking Uvitas Whale’s Tale, and Arenas del Mar Beachfront and Rainforest Resort. We could even have made it to Senda in Monteverde that same day, but that would have been pushing it…

While we do not recommend this one-day itinerary for our guests, it shows that it is very feasible to do a multi-property itinerary with just Cayuga Collection Hotels. A few years back we also connected Kura and Aguas Claras in Puerto Viejo with a “Coast to Coast Charter” for a very special Honeymoon Experience.

Cayuga Corporate and Hotel Management Team at breakfast at 7 am at Isla Palenque. Nothing like beginning your day with a delicious cup of coffee from nearby Boquete and some fresh tropical fruit. We left the hotel at 8 am and headed north to the border.

Lunch at Kura at 1 pm overlooking the infinity pool and the Whale’s Tale with Jennifer Murphy, a travel writer who came to Costa Rica to visit our hotels. Ceviche! Before lunch, we have a two-hour meeting with the Kura Management Team.

Dinner at Playitas Beach at Arenas del Mar in Manuel Antonio at 7 pm. Since January 2024, we have served dinner every night at Playitas with a special Seafood Menu.
