BOCAS DEL TORO, PANAMA

ABOUT THIS TRIP

 

Picture a group of gorgeous Panamanian islands with sandy beaches and jaw-dropping sunsets. Now add some killer beginner and intermediate waves. That’s Bocas Del Toro.

 

For 7 days, we will be traveling from the main island (Isla Colon) on daily adventures to different islands to catch waves, snorkel, eat at local hot spots, explore on ATVs and practice yoga with instructors from around the world.

 

This is not an all-include. But it’s damn close.

We take care of everything minus your flights to Panama, 1st night accommodations, airport transfers, tipping, beverages, and the rental of your ATV and boat trip to Zapatillo.

 

Otherwise, domestic flights from Panama City to Isla Colon, ground transportation, accommodation, guides, daily surf lessons, daily yoga classes, 3+ meals a day, and unforgettable memories are all included.

ACCOMODATION

 

Casa Comunal- Bocas del Toro

True to Oshiis form, we want to offer you a real authentic local experience. For our Bocas trip we are switching it up a bit from our regular boutique hotel experience to a beautiful boutique home located right on the ocean. Casa Comunal is a piece of art. You will have all the comforts and luxuries of a boutique hotel but in your own home. Casa Comunal is a 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom architects dream. With half of the house being windows, there will be no shortage of an amazing view.

SURFING

 

Bocas Del Toro is a playground for surfers of all levels. Each morning, our guides survey the swell and the winds to determine the best beach for our surf lessons. Everybody gets up on a board. That’s our policy, so whether you’re a newbie or know how to catch a wave on your own, we make sure you’re having a blast surfing in uncrowded, warm ocean waves.

YOGA

 

For all our yogis, we have a beautiful oceanfront studio to challenge and enhance your yoga practice. Imagine yourself deepening your practice all the while listening to the waves crashing on the beach and hearing the sounds of the wildlife.

WHAT’S INCLUDED

 

A lot. Let’s get into the details.

 

Domestic Flight

As a group we will be traveling from Panama City, Panama to Isla Colon, Bocas Del Toro on Air Panama charter flight. This 45 min flight will transport us from the big city to the secluded islands in just minutes.

 

Premium stylish accommodation

Premium and stylish accommodation located next to beautiful tropical beaches and surf. The advertised rate is for double occupancy. Single occupancy can absolutely also be arranged for an additional fee. Please contact us to learn more.

 

Daily surf instruction with professional surfers

Our instructors are top notch and include Costa Rican National Surf Coach, and 5 x National Surf Champion, Gilbert Brown. Oshiis can accommodate the complete novice surfer (someone who was never touched a surfboard) through to an intermediate or advanced surfer (someone looking to get their first barrel or do their first air). Groups are divided by ability. From rookie to ripper.

 

Daily surfboard rental

You are welcome to bring your own surfboard but we understand that this can be costly due to airline fees. Oshiis’ surfboard inventory includes longboards through to performance shortboards. If you would prefer to travel without your surfboard, let us know what you need and we will source it.

 

Daily yoga instruction

Our yoga space is nestled in the jungle near the beach. Our experienced yoga instructors, and organic jungle sounds and crashing waves, will guide your practice.

 

Daily surf check and travel from hotel to optimal surfing location

Surfing conditions change daily. Oshiis assesses the surf each day and coordinates travel so that you enjoy the best surf possible on that day and for your ability.

 

Mouthwatering meals

Begin your day with a delicious tropical breakfast at the hotel, energize with organic snacks in between surf and yoga sessions, and enjoy some very special evening meals that only a local can offer.

 

20 years of local knowledge

Two decades of personal and business life in the surf towns of Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua have allowed Oshiis to create a network of incredible people; passionate about sharing their sand, sea and stories with you.

WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED

 

Airfare to Central America

 

Cost of activities other than surfing or yoga
If you have gas left in the tank after a day of surfing, stretching and beaching we can arrange for you to experience even more of Central America.

 

Your 1st nights hotel in the city of destination
At Oshiis we want to be able to maximize our 1st day together. So we ask that you arrive one day before the Experience begins. We do this so that we can head out first thing in the morning on the first day of the trip. We have a designated hotel for our guests to stay at, including an Oshiis special rate.

 

Your transportation to and from Panama City International Airport
As most of our guest are coming from around North America, it is quite difficult for us to accommodate transportation to and from the airport. We would be happy to organize an Oshiis representative from the hotel to take you safely to the hotel, but it will be an additional cost.
