Our Mission.

Finca La Maya is an international Cultural Arts Center, located an hour from Panama City and nestled on forty tranquil acres in the small Pacific coast community of San Carlos.

The Arts Center at Finca is dedicated to the spirit of creativity in all its forms: exploration, imagination, pushing boundaries, growth in personal, emotional, and experiential disciplines. 

Finca La Maya is also a certified tree farm and grows organic Moringa OleiferaLearn about how this miraculous botanical can transform your health and order yours today!

Finca La Maya is also a non-profit activity in Panama.  In the past, we have enhanced educational and vocational opportunities for local Panamanian children by providing free enrichment programs in language, culture and the arts. La Maya’s community programs included English language classes, “Art for Kids”, a computer lab, and a community library offering bi-lingual books, references materials, and DVDs. Up to one hundred participants have attended the free weekly classes at the facility in San Carlos, most coming from Panama’s Pacific coast poorer rural communities.

Get Inspired!

What makes Finca La Maya unique is the combination of internationally-renowned instructors, intensive and focused studio time, the exploration of art forms including music, literature, poetry, dance, and creativity of all kinds presented in an exceptional site. Enjoy our extraordinary environment to encourage, nourish, and inspire those who seek to express themselves in new ways.

Programs can range from short 1/2 day workshops to one-week sessions. Anyone may participate, from beginners to advanced professionals.

Teach!

We are all educators, of something! We invite teachers, practitioners, and professionals to host their sessions and workshops: for painters, writers, photographers, dance, yoga, massage, and any alternative health and lifestyle topics.

On a first-come, first-served basis, we will do our best to accommodate preferred session dates. Please send us a short and concise course/session description, dates preferred, and a resume or biography for the organizer(s). In some cases, La Maya can help promote sessions. Please contact us directly here to submit a course proposal.
