All-Inclusive trip to Kalu Yala, Panama
SEVEN DAYS. SIX NIGHTS. EIGHTEEN NATION MEMBERS. ONE EPIC ADVENTURE.
Kalu Yala is a project in a Panamanian river valley with the intention of bringing together entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, and educators to create the world's most sustainable modern town — off-the-grid. They're reimagining the possibilities for a thriving society and designing an optimized model of living to share with the world.
Unique. sustainable. Adventurous.
The village of Kalu Yala is powered by the tropical sun with a negative carbon footprint. Meals are supplied from the food forest, jungle will be your orchestra and nature will be your playground.
This is not what you’re used to and that’s the idea.
