    Our differences are woven into the very fabric of growing our own nomad community and they make us stronger.

    Nomad Beach and its eco-friendly design include green areas within a residential complex with pathways for walks and bike rides, sidewalks and areas to enjoy a good rest, meditate, do yoga while breathing the pureness of the air or delight yourself with the singing of the birds.

    We encourage people to brainstorm and develop unique, interesting and profitably sustainable ideas. Every idea is respected and encouraged. to develop a criteria to judge how economically successful an idea could be, by doing this we bring a ¨realistic¨ notion of how feasible an idea is.

    We will need help with: Designing and building houses off the grid with solar energy. Designing and implementing an irrigation system. Harvesting organic fruits & vegetables, helping out with the animals, watering the garden, and some odd jobs when they come up, totaling about 5 hours of work daily.

  • Additional info
  • During their time off they can go to several beaches around Pedasi, Los Santos. Travelers could take a bus to Playa Venao where is famous for their waves and many international travelers go surfing. Also well known for their good parties at Selinas with travelers all over the world. Playa del Toro to enjoy the sun and the beach or go to Las Tablas to emerge the culture of the countryside of Panama. The Azuero Peninsula has a continental shelf drop off just a few miles from shore, thus providing a structure that becomes a giant upswelling of marine animals all year round. This is one of the reasons whales, dolphins, and other marine species are seen so close to shore. Where you can fly fish and spearfishing. And that’s not all, there are many things you could do nearby!
