The leaves are pinnate but.... what genus of palm is it?

Could be Dypsis lutescens ??

RE: What palm is this?

if that's a volunteer, it would be helpful to know where you live. My guess initially is a Phoenix species, but couldn't totally rule out Butia (those are just much less likely to show up like that).

Yes, I am from Nicaragua.

Here also abound Phoenix.

I've read that the genus Phoenix has induplicate (V-shaped) leaflets and Butia is reduplicate leaflets... ( ^ shaped )

Then see if it has thorns in petioles.

Gracias...thank for the help.

Kind of reminds me of Roystonea (Royal Cuban or Florida).

The leaves do not look rigid enough to be any phoenix other than Roebellini. Other Phoenix are much stiffer leaf. I also thought Butia.

OK, so how many hundreds of pinnate palm species grow in Nigaragua? Good heavens, it could be anything! If it's coming up volunteer, what's growing nearby? Or, could be a parrot dropped a seed. Might be too hard to ID until it's older.
