What makes panama special?


Panama’s well-connected transportation infrastructure, including its international airport (PTY) as well as several domestic airports. This makes it easy for people from different parts of the world to visit the country.

The nearest airport to Selva Terra is David Airport, just 55 mins flight time from Panama City. From Panama City, two airlines operate to David (DAV) airport. Copa Airlines and Air Panama combined run 4-5 flights each way daily.


Panama’s tropical climate is characterized by its dry and rainy season. The warm weather and abundance of sunshine create an ideal environment for outdoor yoga sessions, meditation, and other wellness activities. The only months we recommend to avoid are the rainy season months between mid August to mid November. Outside of those months, expect sunny skies that allow for an abundance of outdoor activities and practices. 


Panama is renowned for its stunning natural landscapes, including lush rainforests, remote islands, secluded and pristine beaches, and picturesque mountains. This natural beauty provides a serene and rejuvenating backdrop for yoga and meditation practices, allowing participants to connect deeply with nature. 


Panama’s diverse ecosystem offers the chance to immerse yourself in a wide range of flora and fauna, including howler monkeys, toucans, humpback whales, turtles, dolphins, and reef sharks. 

Selva Terra has its own hiking trail where you can spot and listen to the orchestra of howler monkeys at dawn and dusk. We also offer aquatic adventures such as snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, paddle boarding or kayaking in the surrounding mangroves.
