Casa Paraiso Missions Base

A Ministry of Rio Missions Panama

Our mission...

 To be a host and a hub to the diverse groups that contribute to the local, regional, and national communities of Panama.  


Casa Paraiso exists to facilitate ministry and develop relationships by providing comfortable and affordable accommodations. Every year, teams come from all over the United States and Latin America to do missions work in various areas of Panama! They work with diverse groups of people to share the love of Jesus, help build churches and encourage community development.  


We help groups by providing accommodations, hospitality, connections and encouragement.  


We also host retreats for schools, universities, missions organizations and businesses.
