Movement, creativity and PLAY!
An inspiring week of fun and connection. We are headed BACK! We loved our 2022 retreat in Panama SO MUCH, that we are doing it again in 2023. =) What a treat to return to the beautiful island of Bastimentos and soak up a week of fun at the amazing Azul Paradise resort. This location is an absolute gem and perfect for our Wellness Playground tribe.
Wellness Playground: Inspiring & Empowering your Inner Light.
Relax, unwind and be inspired! Bring your sense of adventure and your spirit of play. For a full week, enjoy delicious, healthy meals, cleansing ocean air, time to relax and time to connect at one of our breathtaking locations around the globe. There will be daily offerings in Yoga, AcroYoga, Thai Massage, Aerial Silks, and Slacklining. You will have opportunities to indulge in massage, surf lessons, excursions to see monkeys, dolphins, butterflies, sloths, and tropical frogs, and of course you will have plenty of time to relax. No experience necessary to join our Wellness Playground, just a bright smile and an open heart!
We have chosen to return to the beautiful island of Bastimentos, in the heart of Bocas del Toro off the coast of Panama. It is a breathtaking, white sand paradise. We’ll have comfortable bungalows over the clear blue Caribbean waters at our fabulous Eco-Luxury resort. We have reserved the whole resort! Plan to schedule your flight into Panama City (PTY), then take a domestic flight to Bocas del Toro (BOC). From there, you will take a 45 min boat ride to arrive at our resort on the island. Boats depart for Isla Bastimentos every day at 12:30pm and 6:30pm. You may also like to stay a night or two in Panama City before coming to the retreat (ask us, we have hotel suggestions!), to enjoy central America’s cosmopolitan capital that connects the world!
