SANTA CATALINA

about a 5 hour drive south west of Panama City on the Pacific Coast lies santa catalina.  with it's remote location the village remains fairly undeveloped since being discovered by adventurous surfers in the 70's.  

with a handful of small, locally owned hotels, restaurants & bars, and with cows and horses roaming the nearby fields and streets, you'll instantly feel the laid-back vibe that has made santa catalina a haven for surfers, adventure travelers and dedicated relaxation seekers.   

Still fairly secluded, the closest town with ATM, pharmacy and large grocery is in Soná, about an hour away. So best to stock up on any essentials on the drive into town, There are 2 local stores with the basics, and a local fruit and vegetable truck that passes through every other day. You’ll hear the horn blowing and know when it’s coming! have some loose change ready. A bag of bananas is just $1.

dining in Santa Catalina is relaxed, inexpensive and delicious.. all restaurants are open air and the food is homemade and super fresh. seafood caught daily by the fisherman includes red snapper, lobster, tuna, mahi mahi, wahoo, crab and jumbo shrimp, all served up in the local restaurants in their own unique and flavorsome way. our favorite is the red snapper cerviche and lobster tacos - incredible!

In addition to seafood there's also tasty wood fired pizza, Italian, Argentinean and authentic Panamanian food. we'll give you all the tips for dining out during your welcome dinner. you can also buy seafood direct from the fisherman in tow and cook up on your own!

PANAMA CITY HOTELS + TOURS

if your planning to make a stop in panama city before or after your retreat,  Our favorite place to stay in Panama City is the historic district of Casco Viejo.  Declared a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1997, the streets are filled with majestic homes and cathedrals that have been left untouched over the centuries.

Some of these building have been beautifully restored and are now pumping roof top bars, restaurants and plush hotels. The contrast between the old and new world is incredibly charming and well worth the visit.
