    Description

    My husband and I are a middle age entrepreneur couple near retirement . We're very adventurous and have chosen this project as our next adventure and retirement project. From Austin Texas we came to Bocas del Toro Panama last July in search for the ideal place to build a yoga and meditation retreat.

    When we set foot onto this property it was love at first site! If you choose us and we choose you to be part of this journey, you'll see why! I'm a proud mother and grandmother with A type personality. Yoga and meditation helps keep me balance!
