Thanksgiving Week Yoga Holiday – Panama – November 2016

Bocas del Toro, Panama
Sat. 19th  – Sat. 26th November 2016

This November, join us in the Caribbean islands of beautiful Bocas del Toro, Panama for an unforgettable week of Yoga, Surfing, Fitness classes and much more on our 7th retreat here –– click here for pictures of past retreats and here for a handy factsheet about Panama & this retreat location.

It’s no surprise to us that Bocas del Toro has been named THE top place to visit by the Times Magazine and Condé Nast, take a look for yourself. Our Hotel Tierra Verde is located on the gorgeous Carenero island, just a short 3 minute boat ride frombocas6the main island Isla Colon with its airport, shops, restaurants and night life. There are no cars on Carenero island or paved roads. Access to the Hotel is directly via its own pier and only via boat which guarantees quietness and privacy.

We first discovered Bocas del Toro 14 years ago backpacking through Central America and were just fascinated by its location, beaches, food, people and relaxed lifestyle. There is so much to Bocas words can’t even explain. You have to see for yourself. And for 14 years …not much has changed in Bocas. It’s still the same beautiful place, no highrise buildings or crowded beaches, and we and our previous guests just love it that way.

Enjoy daily Yoga classes  in our beautiful studio overlooking the ocean right outside our Hotel and come on a day trip to discover the beautiful islands of Bocas, watch dolphins, snorkel or just enjoy local Caribbean food. Our own private chef will prepare delicious dishes comprising a combination of (mainly) locally sourced ingredients including fish, meat, raw and vegan options.

Optional activities include: Sunset cruise, horseback riding on the beach, SUP boarding, SURF Classes , diving, painting workshop or chocolate making workshops, cave tours and botanical gardens tour, additional private surf classes
We  look forward to welcoming again people from all around the world in beautiful Bocas.

How to get there:
Bocas del Toro is easy to reach by plane, bus and/or boat. The fastest way is by plane, which takes about 1 hour each way from Panama City or San Jose (Costa Rica). There are between 6-8 flights a day from Panama City to Bocas. Flights leave from Albrook airpot which is 30 – 40 minutes from the international airport. Please check

If you are arriving from Costa Rica please check for flights. We are also happy to book flights for you. No problem! If you plan to travel by bus/boat please note that the trip varies in time and takes anywhere between 7-10 hours. We can arrange that for you as well. Please contact us!

Also please be aware that airpanama only always updates their system with flights around 3 months before the actual flight. So If you are checking the website in March you are very unlikely to find flights for July. We will inform you when the flights become available, not to worry there are plenty.
