What our Guests are Saying:

I went to Istmo with my husband a few years back and fell in love with the place as well as the owners, Sean and Ayesha. This is truly a simple, pristine, informal, healing place. Plenty of time to relax, read, go to the ocean, walk the Spiritual Maze or follow the paths in the forest. When you need time apart, Istmo is the place to come and rest. It’s a Yoga retreat place as well as a place for groups to utilize for meetings or bonding time. I brought my best friend here for a “thank you” trip. It was the best present I could give her.

Although the cabanas looked rustic and seemed to blend into the woodsy surroundings, they were actually very modern inside, with extremely comfortable beds and pillows, VERY quiet Panasonic air conditioner, small fridge with cold water provided, and a huge shower with wonderful water pressure!
