About The Venue

Santa Catalina could be described as an authentic fishing village with a fantastic surfing beach .  There are approximately 400 inhabitants here, both local and ex-pat.  Two small grocery stores and still no bank or ATM.  Santa Catalina also serves as the “jump off point” to Coiba National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site and marine wonderland.  With the increase of tourism, the town is slowly changing, but most outsiders find it to still be fairly undeveloped and can feel the pace of life slow down immediately upon arrival. 

The retreat will take place at La Buena Vida hotel, an open space surrounded by tropical vegetation that offers a comfortable stay in artistic villas, healthy breakfast and lunch in the garden café, locally made art work in the gift shop, regular yoga classes and massage treatments.  They also take pride in working with many local employees and doing their best for the environment, recycling and composting.

HOW TO GET TO SANTA CATALINA

This is by far the cheapest option.

You need to get a bus from ALLBROOK Terminal in Panamá City to SONÁ.

The bus company is SAN ISIDRO and the times are :

6.20 am

8.20 am

10.20 am


On the bus terminal you’ll see the ticket shops and you need to find the one that reads “PANAMA - SONÁ”

This ride takes four and a half hours and it costs 9 $. By the way, you pay when you exit, the driver will ask you where you go when you enter, just say “SANTA CATALINA”, so he knows you will stop at Soná.


The bus is reasonably comfortable with aircon (bring a sweater) . They play music and musical videos all the way, you may consider bringing your own headphones of earplugs it you want to be more quiet.

Then you need to take a second bus from Soná to Santa Catalina.

This second bus is waiting for you when you arrive to Soná station, so the transfer is immediate and the staff at the station will carry your luggage from one bus to the other.

This second ride takes 1 hour and it costs 5$. You can tell the driver that you go to “La Buena Vida” and he will stop right at the door.
