In search of unique venue for events, workshop leaders, yoga teachers discover new tropical boutique resort
According to Harpers Bazaar, Panama is ”the most beautiful retreat in the world and almost undiscovered.” Perhaps Hollywood celebrity Mariel Hemingway would concur, as she shares her fondness of Panamas hills on Twitter.
In this “almost undiscovered retreat," only a few hours from the US by plane, workshop participants can combine learning new skills with the leisure of a tropical vacation while enjoying privacy, friendly service, and convenience at a luxurious new eco-center operated by Gina Cronin, an American from Ohio.

Asked about her personal philosophy, Cronin said:
“I believe that it is the simple things in life that bring the greatest pleasure - great food, natural living, communion with family and friends, comfortable living quarters and beds, and harmonious interaction with our surroundings.”
One of the experts offering workshops at Rancho de Caldera is Dave Jetson, a counselor who specializes in helping people overcome issues associated with co-dependency. See related article: www.eturbonews.com/19031/tropical-vacation-workshop-said-improve-relationships
He explained: “I choose Rancho de Caldera as a venue because of the remote location, the beauty of the area, and it is a way to promote having a medical vacation… the food is wonderful, and I especially appreciate hearing all the tropical birds in the morning.”
Groups coming to Rancho de Caldera for events don’t have to worry about the food quality in a foreign country either.
They get to enjoy gourmet cuisine in a casual ambiance at Madre Tierra, the Rancho’s on-site restaurant where Chef Craig Miller prepares delicious, healthy edibles right before their eyes. ( http://ranchodecaldera.com/madre-tierra.php )
Praised by travel publications and top rated on TripAdvisor.com, Rancho de Caldera is an environmentally-conscious hospitality project that has been Green Globe certified. It operates on solar, hydro, and wind power all year.
Groups can stay in luxurious, comfortable rooms and suites with kitchenettes, satellite TV, and WiFi. A spacious terrace allows yoga fans to greet the sun rising over the green hills.
Between workshop sessions, siestas, and gourmet meals, groups can enjoy the solar-powered swimming pool, ride horses, watch birds, explore hot springs, or visit nearby Boquete (a new hot spot among American, Canadian, and European expats) - or simply hang out, like the guest who sums up her Rancho experience on Facebook: “first class… no better place to relax.”
