Adventurous Yoga Retreat in Panama

Welcome to this unique retreat in paradise for the curious and adventurous. Your location for this week is on an island in the Caribbean off the coast of Boca del Toro called Isla de San Cristobal. Your stay is not your typical hotel, you will be staying in an eco-retreat designed to offer nature-seekers a more immersive experience of Bocas del Toro, both in the water and in the jungle. In fact, GYPSET Yoga Retreats scheduled this retreat around the phase of the moon so you can go for kayak rides and swim in Bioluminescence as the new moon begins on the 21st.

Included excursions

Optional excursions

  • Bioluminescence – This is the biggy and what drew the organizers to this area initially. In the lagoon that is on the property you will be staying in, the combination of still waters and red mangrove trees creates the ideal environment for bioluminescent micro-organisms to thrive. The ideal viewing time is a new moon night or before the moon rises. Any kind of motion causes the bioluminescence to light up: swimming, kayaking, or even just jumping on the dock! We picked this week in particular by the phase of the moon that will be in favor of swimming and kayaking with bioluminescence.
  • Hiking around the 55-acre grounds you will be staying on
  • SUP
  • Snorkeling
  • Guided Jungle Tours

Retreat location

The location for this retreat is an off-the-grid retreat located on the southern tip of Isla de San Cristóbal, Bocas del Toro, Panamá. This secluded location is a 30-minute speedboat ride away from the nearest town, and there are no roads on the island. This is nature-immersion at its best; the retreaters, monkeys and a starry sky, and all the peace and quiet you can imagine.


Your retreat includes three gourmet meals prepared daily by an Argentinian couple who travel to the venue by boat every day to make you the delicious meals. They are known for their Argentine classics and using local ingredients and are fabulous cooks! Plan on three healthy, locally sourced meals per day. Coffee, tea, and fresh coconut water are available throughout the day. Delicious cocktails and smoothies are prepared with local fruits.
