What are Earthships®?

Earthships are a type of sustainable home created by visionary Michael Reynolds. They are not only sustainable, but self-sustainable, which means they leverage nature’s elements to provide their inhabitants with:

  • Water
  • Food
  • Electricity
  • Year-round comfortable living temperature

They are also built from natural and re-purposed materials and have a contained sewage system, so they have a positive impact on their immediate surroundings!

The Earthship philosophy challenges many paradigms of our modern world, and offers an clear and actionable plan to changing our world for the better…starting with our homes.

The Place

The appearance of this land bridge three million years ago created a biological boom! Back then, it was plants, amphibians, primates, flowers and insects. Today’s Panama has become a mix of ambitions, economic forces and peoples.

Panama has always been a crucial connection, a confluence, where the lands of the continent converge, a place where the oceans meet and walk side by side towards a point of expansion. An explosion of nature, cultures and beliefs in that messy, musical arrangement that’s everyday life in Latin America.

With a spate of deserted islands, chilled Caribbean vibes on one side and monster Pacific swells on the other, Panama sits poised to deliver the best of beach life. Hello, paradise.

The times

December to May, it is high season, dry season and summer season. It’s prime time for surfing on both Pacific and Caribbean swells. In February, Carnaval, on the four days preceding Ash Wednesday, where massive celebrations prevail in Panama City and on the Península de Azuero (just where the build is!!).

Cosmopolitan Panama

Diverse and driven, rough-edged yet sophisticated, there’s much that’s new and improved. Central America’s first subway is ready, the historic Casco district is renovated and a huge canal expansion was just completed.

The Great Outdoors

In Panama, nature is all about discovery. With more than 300 mammals and 900 bird species, Panama is crack for wildlife. Scarlet macaws, resplendent quetzal’s, toucans, sloths and squirrel monkeys are just a few local inhabitants. Waking up to the calls, cries and rumbles of the rainforest will be part of the daily routine with howler monkeys as the lead singers.
