Getting There 

Azul Paradise Beach Resort is located on Bastimentos Island in the archipelago of Bocas del Toro in Panama. International flights arrive at the Panama City Tocumen international airport (PTY).  From there, you will take a short taxi ride to Marcos A. Gelabert domestic airport (PAC) and then take a domestic flight to Bocas del Toro (BOC) where you will be met by the Azul Paradise group shuttle. There will be a boat that will take the group to the island from Bocas del Toro. 

For more flexible flight times and relaxing travel experience on arrival day, we encourage participants to arrive in Panama City one day prior to the retreat start date.

Travel Insurance

We cannot emphasize more the importance of travel insurance. As we all know, especially as travelers, “life happens.” Whether it’s family, work, mother nature, or a change of heart, it is important to be prepared in case you need to unexpectedly change your travel plans. Often for less than $150, you can purchase a travel insurance policy and be protected in the event that you need to make a change or need to be covered financially prior to or during your trip. 

We have partnered with two insurance companies: Trawick International and CSA Travel Insurance (available for U.S. Residents only). 

Read more about our insurance partners and their policies here. We encourage you to research the insurance company and policy that best meets your needs.
