We have open air facilities. There are no closed wall cabins on this reserve. Pitch your Tent on the Pavilion - Camp in the wild but stay dry on our raised platforms that protect you from the rain with a tin roof.
We have 4 Pavilions which are open air, meaning no walls; they have a raised wooden floor; and a tin roof to help keep the tents dry…as it REALLY RAINS in the rainforest!

Kitchen - is open air with a wood fire on 2 rock stoves. We prepare meals for you on M.W.F. The menu is built around the traditional food of Costa Rica, rice and beans. We do not have refrigeration, we serve no meat, but we have lots of fruits and vegetables on hand. Campers use our kitchen facilities to cook their own meals on the days when we don't cook. Bring your own comfort food and camp meals for 3 days. When you are sitting outside to eat it is warm in the daytime and chilly after dark.
Water - You’ll be drinking delicious, Costa Rican Spring Water that we get tested periodically . If you prefer bottled water you must bring your own.
Shower - You can stay clean in our outdoor, sparkling cold private shower or jump into our rushing river for a cool wake up!
Composting Toilet - Sit in a garden of flowers…our Bamboo Out House is about as pleasant as an out house can be!
Solar Panel - Basically there is no electricity, however, you can recharge your phone for taking more pictures with our single small solar panel. There is no internet service.
Activities - Guided and unguided hikes, camping, bird watching, relaxing, rural Tico culture and indigenous culture, candle lit evenings, riverside fun, cool climate, Saturday Market, and possible horseback riding.
Laundry - Wash your clothes in a wooden sink built on a rock floor, protected from the rain by a Sweeta Roof (indigenous grass roof). The laundry area is a good place to wash your face and brush your teeth.
The original kitchen has been taken back by the jungle. This year I am rebuilding the kitchen (open air) and adding new facilities. February and March have the best weather so we plan to only be open in those two months. Our new kitchen will not be completed until January 2018. We are also building an open air Shower with bamboo walls, and an open air facility for campers to use for washing clothes, and for washing the face or brushing the teeth. It will have a dry rock floor, a tin roof, and a place in the sun for drying clothes.
