- New Year’s Yoga Retreat with Rawfood Workshop – Panama Dec 2015

Get fit, healthy and awesome – (and maybe have a few cocktails too)!

26th December 2015 – 2nd January 2016 ( 8 days / 7 nights)

After the great success of our past 5 retreats here and due to popular demand come join us this December on our New Year’s Retreat in the Caribbean islands of beautiful Bocas del Toro, Panama, for an unforgettable week of Yoga, Surfing, Fitness classes and much more.

ptlIt’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.

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.

We will be staying at the award-winning Bocas Island Lodge on Bastimentos island, a short 10 minutes boat ride from the main island Isla Colon with its airport, restaurants, cafes, shops and nightlife. At Bocas Island Lodge you can experience the natural side of Bocas as you spend your days lounging on beautiful Red Frog Beach (awarded the best beach in Bocas) and your nights falling asleep to the peaceful sounds of the jungle and the rhythm of breaking waves. It is a truely magificent place to recharge, get spoiled and relax.

How to get to Bocas del Toro:

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 August you are very unlikely to find flights for December. It is the caribbean after all :) We will inform you when the flights become available, not to worry there are plenty.

•International/national flights to Bocas del Toro are NOT included in the price
•Check-in on the first day of the retreat is from 2pm and check-out on the final day by 12 pm. The hotel will do its best to accommodate earlier arrivals/late departures where possible.
