My end assessment is that Puerto Palmeras is a lot closer to the idealized concept of the tropical paradise than anything else I have encountered in Peru. It’s a place to go to chill out in the pool, drink fruity adult beverages, and just…RELAX!
Here’s a photo of the typical room:
Yep, that’s a big bed. Big enough that you have to make long distance calls to talk to whoever is sleeping with you…big enough to fit about eight people and their extended families…now that’s a party!
No sooner did we enter the room than an attendant arrived to give us these:
Coconuts! Awesome, you aren’t vacationing in some tropical place until you’re holding a coconut with a straw sticking out of it.
Here’s a view of the resort from above:
And a shot of the Inca basketball court as I liked to call it:
That court looks like something out of "Apocalypto," when you’re playing on it, you get the impression that instead of a ball, you should be using a human head. It was awesome needless to say.
Here is a photo of the official rates tablet posted in the office:
As you can see, it’s a little pricey, but those are the "offical" rates which means there are always deals to be had. The best thing to do is to simply make the reservation in Lan (the airline ticket offices) when you are buying your tickets. They have several packages that provide you with various discounts.
