Retreat location

Playa Venao is where the jungle meets the surf and crowds are nowhere to be found! This laid back community is home to the Azuero Peninsula’s best surfing and offers its visitors lots of opportunities to step into passionate living, creating lifetime memories, and rejuvenating their souls in a stunning natural setting.

The vision takes place on the shores of Playa Venao at El Sitio. Kari Jaffe's mission is to support you in wholeheartedly reconnecting to Pachamama, Mother Earth, and diving deep into the place where your soul feels free.

El Sitio is an oceanside sanctuary, where you are given the space to recharge and reconnect with your spiritual essence. This eco compound is one of the original beachfront hotels in Playa Venao.
