Istmo Adventure and Yoga retreat was a dream that became a reality of the co-founders and managers Sean Davis and Ayesha Irani Davis.
Panama is our adopted country, and we love it and are inspired by it! When the Isthmus of Panama rose from the sea, it changed life on Earth in many countless ways. Today this bridge of life hosts an astonishing wealth of biodiversity and is the nexus of a multitude of connections- climatic, biological, and cultural- that link the globe.
Sean is the chef and SUP instructor at Istmo!
Ayesha was born in Bombay, India and moved to the United States at the age of 13. She served in the Peace Corps in Paraguay. Her love for travel and adventure led to work as an Environmental Engineer in different countries throughout Latin America. In Panama, she met Sean Davis and finally settled down to have family and create this dream called Istmo. Her pride and joy is her family and two babies – Noah and Kamila!
