Panama city

Deplane in comfort at the Bristol hotel in Panama City. This boutique luxury hotel bookends our island time with all of the comfort and amenities you can expect: delicious food, amazing spa and luxuriously appointed rooms. Enjoy top notch service and all the flavor of Panama City right outside your door.

Bocas del Toro

Get ready for barefoot elegance, island style. Each Island Plantation room is designed and decorated with natural comfort in mind. All rooms have gorgeous open-air bathrooms, front pool-facing patios, overhead fan for evening comfort (though the ocean breezes keep you cool) and a zen style that eases you into ‘island time’. Many rooms have one king bed and one twin with private bathrooms while the one upstairs suite shares a bathroom between two rooms with the trade off of a hammock-ed porch and amazing ocean and monkey-dwelling tree views.


When you are tapped into source directly, you have unlimited access to the energy we need to create, sustain and enjoy our lives. Join Gioconda for an eight day adventure designed to help you reconnect directly to source energy through yoga, meditation, time in and near the ocean, the adventure of travel, and joy of quality time with a like-minded community.

Remember yourself, reconnect with your heart, rediscover the delight of time in nature - ReSource your life!

Always wanted to try? We've got one group lesson with your name on it.

Waterfall, cave walk or tide pool excursion

All depending on the weather, season or tide, our groups will head out for a Panamanian nature exploration.
