We are a young family living in Panama for the past 5 years. Laura (36), Luca (11), Mia (8) and myself Emy (36), 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.

Additionally, we plan on building a small rustic eco-lodge, with a few small huts or cabins.

We are located on the virgin island of Solarte, surrounded by untouched rainforest and right on the Caribbean sea. Volunteers can explore the amazing jungle trails, take a dip in the sea right off our dock, take the kayak to a small nearby reef, go fishing, snorkeling or explore the amazing jungle.

We are located only 5 minutes by boat from the famous Red Frog Beach; or 40 minutes by kayak.
