La Chacra

We are located on the virgin island of Solarte, surrounded by untouched rainforest and right on the Caribbean sea. Volunteers can take a dip in the sea right off our dock, take the kayak to the nearby reef, go fishing, snorkeling or explore the amazing jungle, and make new friends during to visit this magical island. We are located only 5 minutes by boat from the famous Red Frog Beach; or 40 minutes by kayak.  The island is mainly inhabited except for a few homes. There are many trails along the island where you can walk and explore, it's very safe; you will probably encounter no other human life! bring your compass :-)

We are a young family living in Panama for the past 6 years. Laura (39), Luca (14), Mia (10), and myself Emy (39), we also have three cats and two dogs. Our vision for the future is to design and develop a Permaculture food forest and self-sustainable homestead. We also plan on building a few rental cabins in the near future.  Although we are still in the early stages of this lifelong project, we feel very optimistic about the great future that awaits us and we look forward to living a simpler more sustainable way of life surrounded and connected by nature. Accommodations: Our current accommodation for volunteers includes a shared room/cabin Meals are not included, volunteers have access to a shared kitchen to cook their own meals. Water is drinkable, hot shower and WI-FI are available. Our property has water access and a kayak you can borrow to explore around the bay, there are several small reefs nearby and the closest beach is 40minutes by kayak or 5 minutes by boat.
