Serenity Vista Alcohol & Drug Addiction Rehab Retreat
About Me
I'm passionate about helping people affected by alcoholism, drug addiction, codependency, and other forms of unhappiness and discontentment.

Having sailed here from Canada on Decision, our Beneteau First 36.7 sailboat, my wife, Jane, and I, now love sailing in tropical paradise year round. The tropical Pacific waters of the Chiriqui Gulf Islands of Panama are gorgeous and the islands are beautiful, complete with white sandy beaches and palm trees.

Boquete is our home, and home to Serenity Vista holistic alcohol & drug rehab. We love the local people and have felt welcomed from day one. Boquete has a large and growing expat community that is friendly and fun. The recovery community is strong, vibrant, and supportive of Serenity Vista.
