PALMAR IS OPEN AS OF NOV 1 2020
TRAVEL - All travelers entering Panama will be required to show a negative COVID PCR or antigen test taken no more than 48 hours prior to their arrival time in Panama. If the test was taken more than 48 hours before arrival, or the passenger does not have a test, they will be required to have a rapid COVID test at the airport ($50).
Air Panama is currently operating at a reduced schedule and is offering special deals to promote tourism. Make sure to reserve early to take advantage of these promotions.
YOUR STAY - Palmar will begin a gradual reopening process on November 1st as we see what challenges arise while the country begins to allow visitors again. We will be complying with all government recommended measures for cleanliness and may have to adjust some of our normally scheduled activities to meet social distancing guidelines. All guests and employees will be screened for temperature and asked to disclose any health symptoms before the check-in process. Guests showing any symptoms will be referred to the hospital for testing and not permitted to enter the property until they can provide a negative COVID test. Alcoholic gel stations will be found throughout the property and masks will be required in all common spaces, except in the restaurant while dining.
RESTAURANT - The restaurant will be open for all three meals as normal, however, the tables will be located at safe distances and no more than 6 people will be allowed at a table. Masks may be removed while sitting, but must be used if the guest gets up to go anywhere. Unfortunately, drinking without eating in the common space will not be permitted. Snacks will be available for purchase. The restaurant will close at 8:30 pm and the bar will have last call at 9:30 pm.
