About this trip

Join Susannah van der Wende for 6 nights / 7 days in the stunning archipelago of Bocas Del Toro, Panama!


Bocas del Toro is world renowned for having one of Central America's largest and most biodiverse rainforests, as well as unbelievably beautiful and pristine beaches. This trip will be the perfect blend of relaxation, fun in the sun, and a deep dive into your yoga practice, which let’s be honest, we will all need come March! 


Susannah will be offering two, always optional, yoga classes daily. Sessions will be challenging enough, but also designed to meet all levels. Immerse in your practice with Susannah’s light hearted approach and knowledgeable guidance while in the presence of paradise. 


Free time can be spent soaking up the sun on our near private beach, relaxing by the pool, biking to hidden beaches, exploring hiking trails around the retreat center, horseback riding, snorkeling, scuba diving, and experiencing the local culture of Bocas del Toro. The optional excursions are very affordable and allow you the opportunity to create your own perfect week. Be as active or relaxed as you like! 


Our trip begins in Panama City, where we meet up at the international airport (PTY) and fly on our included, inter-country flight to Bocas Del Toro (a $250 value). Upon arrival at our exclusive retreat center, you can expect 3 healthy and delicious, locally sourced meals each day from our private chef, daily Yoga classes with Susannah, and all of the sunshine you can soak up! We are also including one group excursion in your retreat package, which will be a boating and snorkeling excursion of the islands off Bocas town.


Our retreat center features a 65 foot lap pool, secluded beach, and nature reserve where you will see wild sloths, monkeys, toucans and more! We will have exclusive use of the entire property, which includes 3 beach houses, all with multiple bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens for your use. 


A $500 deposit is required to reserve your space at our retreat center and your seat on the included inter-country flight from Panama City (PTY) to Bocas del Toro (BOC).

Felt like I was living out a dream I've had in the past; between the beautiful, lusciously green-glowing garden environment, the supportive space to practice in, delicious meals on the deck, intellectual exchanges with like-minded individuals, absorbing the Mayan and Guatemalan culture, and of course the breathtaking view of the volcano and lake, I don't think I could have asked for a more soul-reviving time. Not to mention the hospitality of the staff was 5 star. Thanks for making me feel activated and alive again. Rebecca, Kelly, Ian, Kristin, Ollie, Flor, Riley, the beautiful ladies in the kitchen, and all other staff, you all are amazing!
I cannot thank Solseed enough for the AMAZING experience, accommodations, coordination and friendship. This trip was A+ from beginning to end. Kelly and Rebecca were the most inspiring yoga leaders, and I would highly recommend a trip with them and Solseed to anyone who is looking to change their life!
Fantastic trip. Smooth transportation experience. Rooms were rustic but clean and comfortable. The food was delicious. Excursions were fun and well planned.
I enjoyed the overnight in Antigua before we headed to our retreat on the shore of Lake Atitlan. The food was fresh, colorful and delicious, the elective outings were good experiences, and the retreat in general was well paced. Best of all were the morning and evening yoga sessions with journaling after the morning session. Kelly and Rebecca are wise beyond their years and open hearted. Thanks to them, the group of about 30 participants, ages 20's - 70's (?) bonded over the week. It was a really special time.
This was an amazing trip. Lovely people, excellent food, clean accommodations. Everything was so well run, and everyone was so eager to please or help with any question or request. The views continued to take my breath away throughout our stay. I would highly recommend this trip.
