I’m hoping to visit this one again! It was a beautiful setting, superb food, lovely staff. There was lots to do if you wanted or not. I traveled with a group of friends and made new ones. I also found time for reflection at a time it was helpful.

Sansara is beautiful. The staff takes excellent care of everyone and everything. It was a long ride (6+ hours) to get there, but I guess that's what you have to do to find this tucked away gem. I do wish the patio spaces accompanying each room had more comfortable lounge chairs

Hello and thanks for reaching out. I know of many people that have made the drive, not necessarily to come to Sansara but Central America in general. The experience can vary depending on your level of adventure. My only concern would be the current political situation in Nicaragua. Some research should be done in that area. Let me know if we can provide any additional info. Take care

Dear reader, Our son and daughter are 11 and 12. We got individual lessons and especially Kevin was great with the kids while we got adult lessons. It first slowly learning on white waves and afterwards to green waves. The instructors are very good with safety and we enjoyed and learned a lot in four days training. Have fun and good luck :-) Michiel

We drove our own car from Panama City to Cambutal in approximately 6-1/2 hrs. For information on their shuttle you should contact Sansara. As far as a safe time to get back to Panama City, it depends on where you plan to go. They can advise you at Sansara. They are extremely knowledgable and helpful.
