August 20 - September 17
4 Weeks on the Dream Island of Bocas Del Toro
Panama is unlike anywhere else we’ve lived before. It’s captivatingly beautiful, and addictively adventurous in equal measure. If you’re the kind of person who lives for the sound of ocean waves lapping on the shore, if you feel most alive when you have warm sand between your toes and salt in your hair, if you’re equally happy swinging in a hammock or diving the warm clear waters of the Caribbean sea, then we have something very special in store for you…
Panama's Caribbean Paradise
Panama can be as laid back or as thrilling as you want it to be. Hop on a 'water taxi' or rent a sailboat and explore the many dreamy Caribbean islands. Trek through the rainforest or take in the beats of the drums. It’s a small archipelago, with a big playground.
Life in The Caribbean
'Bocas town' offers everything you’d imagine Caribbean island life would. It's the place to find that perfect work-life balance. Whether you’re seeking a quiet spot for a day of focused productivity, or want to escape to a remote beach for snorkeling - it’s all possible in Bocas del Toro.
Learn to Surf
Bocas is a well-known surf spot, with steady waves and a lush jungle backdrop. August and September have smaller swells, so it’s the perfect time for anyone who wants to learn to ride the waves.
Dive into Nature
Hear the distinctive call of a howler monkey, spot lazy sloths hanging from trees, swim with friendly whale sharks, snorkel colorful Caribbean reefs, and try to get a shot of some of the most beautiful birds you've ever seen. Panama is pure abundance for nature lovers.
Indulge in World-Class Coffee
Panama is world-renowned for producing aromatic, high-grade coffee, on par with that of Colombia, Peru or Costa Rica. Take a tour through the plantations, learn how it’s produced, and finish up with a professional tasting - a true bean to cup experience!
Travel up the Chagres river in a dugout canoe, hike through the rainforest, and emerge to meet the Embera tribe, the indigenous people of Panama. Sample authentic food, enjoy a traditional music and dance show, and spend the afternoon swimming in ancient waterfalls.
Central America's Florida
Panama city is reminiscent of Miami with its dazzling blue coastline and shimmering skyscrapers. Pedal green coastal paths, explore the Casco, or enjoy an avant-garde performance in the warm evening air. You’ll soon see there’s so much more to this city than its Salsa soul.
Coliving & Coworking
Our Home in Bocas del Toro
Our home in Bocas del Toro is a set of cozy apartments all under one roof with modern facilities, balconies and the traditional Caribbean facade. We'll be located on Colon Island (the main island) and walking distance to the beach. In total 16 Tribers can join us for this Chapter across 14 rooms.
A great home base after enjoying a day in crystal clear waters swimming with the starfish, visiting Dolphin Bay, going scuba diving, surfing, kayaking, paddling, hiking at night to observe the turtle nesting or sailing to see manatees.
The accommodation comes equipped with 30mbps internet, AC in the bedrooms, open common areas for work and restaurants, cafes, and a coworking space close by that will make is easy for us all to be productive, feel comfortable, and have the freedom to explore these amazing islands.

Internet speeds and stability is generally very good for the region.

I'm New To This... How Does It Work?
WiFi Tribe is a membership-based community of remote professionals who travel together without sacrificing their careers. Our travel style is a bit unconventional–it's collaborative, community-focused, and even more fulfilling because we get to share it. Each Chapter is a moment in time where we colive, cowork, and explore a new country, getting our work done during the week and adventuring in our downtime.
Discover why we love to wander the world on our own terms.
Are there changes to Chapters due to COVID?
We have a responsibility to keep our members and the local communities that host us as safe as possible while we continue to travel together.
As you read through our guidelines below, you will see a combination of local government guidelines and the CDC, WHO, and RKI recommendations to ensure safety for everyone joining us on a Chapter. In addition, country-specific measures to each Chapter will be shared with attending members during the 2-week online meet-and-greet before the Chapter.
Every Tribe member has been welcomed into WiFi Tribe because we felt that there was an alignment with our 6 values: Respect, Humility, Camaraderie, Curiosity, Passion, and Inclusion. Now, it is more important than ever that we choose to live by them every day. We will enforce the following protocols as necessary, but we are confident that every member of this Chapter will respect fellow Tribe members and the local community.
