I was lucky enough to have a summer sabbatical this year. When deciding what to do, I tried to think of the most relaxing vacation, and a yoga retreat in Costa Rica popped into my head. After a lot of google searches, I found Panacea. I emailed the retreat to get more information, and I heard back right away. I'm... More

I was at Panacea for 9 days and loved it!! The mountain and the retreat Debbie, Peter and Mary have created and carved into the mountain is beautiful, natural, calming, fun and enlightened. The cabinas are comfortable and really well maintained - how could you go wrong with a hammock? The natural state of the grounds with all the personalized... More

This retreat is perfect. Quiet, stunning, a real departure from the grind. The staff was outstanding. Lovely, friendly, chatty (when you demonstrate that you were in the mood to chat), quiet (when you demonstrate you were in the mood for quiet), knowledgeable, kind, and extremely accommodating! The food is fresh and made by Deb, who is a delight. Mary runs... More

I came here with three girlfriends, each with an idea of enjoying a relaxing and adventurous holiday together. It was truly beyond our expectations. Our accommodations were perfect, two adjoining cabins, each with two beds, a private bath, and covered patio with hammock. We spent our days starting with a vitalizing yoga class each morning, enjoying delicious food prepared in... More

Before traveling to Panacea, I read all the glowing reviews here and thought to myself, "well, at best, this place could be great and at the least, I know it won't be terrible." I am here to tell you that Panacea exceeded my wildest expectations. Debbie, Mary, Peter and their amazing staff have created a quiet, peaceful & rejuvenating slice... More

A friend of mine travels to Panacea annually and I was lucky enough to be invited along this year. The description of the retreat, my friend's review, and the other tripadvisor reviews made me considerably less apprehensive about attending my first yoga retreat, but the proof was in the pudding my friends. I am now a believer...this place was AMAZING!... More

This retreat will melt all your stress away. Mary, Peter, and Deb have put together a spectacular resort for those looking to escape for a bit. The daily yoga classes are thoughtful and invigorating--a great way to start the day! The food is nourishing and delicious for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike! The reflexology was great, too.

What an experience! I travelled solo to just get away from it all and leave the hype of The Boston Marathon behind for a bit as the year before was a bit horrific. Panacea did not disappoint. I discovered it via Trip Advisor and after reading everyone's reviews, I thought, well all these people can't be wrong. Trust me, they... More
