Oh hey good lookin!
You made it this far, so we know you're thinking about signing up for our incredible adventure retreat in Panama next February. Here's the scoop: us Wanderlove girls travel all over the world together, but this time around we want you to join in on our fun. In this week-long adventure, you'll be able to practice yoga at sunrise, learn how to surf, try your hand at scuba diving, soak up the sun on a private island, and eat delicious local food. We'll have reiki sessions available upon request, a mala bead and jewelry shop, free gear from our partners, and memories for a lifetime. You DON'T want to miss this.
Important note: this retreat is for ALL yoga, surfing, and adventure levels. The only requirement is a strong case of wanderlust and adventure.
Let's go to Panama!
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. And here we are :)
There are 1000's of retreats, so why this one?
The Wanderlove Adventure Retreat's main focus is on the 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.
What is the total cost of the retreat?
$1,295 not including airfare. Flights from the U.S. to Panama City are between $400-500 last time we checked. With your $350 + fees deposit today, you'll have $945 left to pay by February 1, 2017.

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.
