Event description


The Wanderlove Adventure Retreat is back for 2018 and it's going to be better than ever!

This year, 16 ladies joined us from around the globe for a week of adventures down in Santa Catalina, Panama. Due to popular demand, we are excited to announce that we will officially be back in 2018.

You read that right, we're doing it AGAIN!

Here's the scoop: here at Wanderlove, we have traveled all over the world together, and now we've started taking other ladies with us. In this week-long adventure, you'll be able to practice yoga at sunrise, learn how to surf, snorkel with sharks, soak up the sun on a private island, and eat delicious local food (ahem, ceviche). We'll have reiki sessions available upon request, a retreat shop, and memories for a lifetime. You don't want to miss this.

Worried about your skills? Don't. This retreat is for ALL yoga, surfing, and adventure levels. The only requirement is a strong case of wanderlust and a willingness to travel, and we're pretty sure you've got that one covered.

Think about it, this could be YOU:

A quick history

In March 2016, us Wanderlove laides (Julie Kern and Jessica Vitorelo) went to Thailand for a yoga retreat on a little island called Koh Samui. It was then and there that we realized Wanderlove is not just a magazine, it's a movement. We made a vow that one day we would host our own retreat, and invite all our traveling sisters to come and join us. In 2017, we did just that. We took 16 girls to Panama and here we are, doing it again.

There are lots of retreats out there, so why this one?

There are a million amazing retreats out there, but what separates us from the best of 'em is The Wanderlove Adventure Retreat's diversity in activities. There will of course be yoga, meditation, healthy food cleansing, and time for self-reflection, but this will all be balanced with exciting activities, free time to do your own thing, and exploring Panama's off-the-beaten-path town of Santa Catalina.

Nope, sorry. No if, ands or butts about it. We recommend purchasing insurance from World Nomads to cover your trip in case anything comes up that would prevent you from traveling.
