Yoga, Surf & SUP Retreat with Rawfood Workshop – Bocas November 2015
with Karli McGuiness
Bocas del Toro, Panama
Sat. 28th Nov – Sat. 5th Dec 2015
After the great success of our past 4 retreats here and due to popular demand we are kicking off our Bocas Del Toro Retreat series 2015 & 2016 this November – click here for pictures of past Retreats and here for a handy factsheet about Panama & this retreat location.
So join us in the Caribbean islands of beautiful Bocas del Toro, Panama, for an unforgettable week of Yoga, Surfing, Fitness classes and much more.
It’s no surprise to us that Bocas has been named THE top place to visit by the Times Magazine and Condé Nast, take a look for yourself. Our Hotel is located on the gorgeous Carenero island, just a short 3 minute boat ride from the 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 as well as surfing classes right outside your hotel with certified instructurs. 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, 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 www.airpanama.com.
If you are arriving from Costa Rica please check www.natureair.com 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 August you are very unlikely to find flights for November. We will inform you when the flights become available, not to worry there are plenty.
