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!

Our eco lodge was built on 20,000 square meters of tropical jungle and Caribbean water front. It's a very beautiful and peaceful location only suited for those that are able to live off grid and willing to conserve our limited natural resources such as water and solar energy.
We provide daily breakfast and plenty of good water to drink and coffee. I'll be happy to share some of my dinners but, I don't cook dinner daily. This is a remote island with no riads or stores. You'll need to bring enough groceries for you to cook or prepare your own lunch and dinner. The main island is where we do our weekly shopping is about 15 minutes boat ride from us. You'll have your own private bedroom and bathroom. Boat ride to the main island range between $8- $10 for one person. We're off the grid but we do have running water and solar power as well as high speed internet that's fairly reliable and a million dollars view! The property it's on the water across from the Island of Bastimentos and Red Frog Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in this area.
During your time off you can just hang out and enjoy fishing, kayaking, swimming or snorkeling just off our dock or, you can go on day trips for more snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, deep sea fishing, explore bat caves, explore the jungle, learn about jungle natural medicine, learn about the indigenous culture or hang out at the beach are a few things you can do.
