CAMPING ON A RESERVE OF RAINFOREST IN THE TALAMANCA MOUNTAINS
WE ARE EXPERIENCING A PERSONAL TRAGEDY. THE MAN, DAVID, WHO HAS BEEN THE MAIN HOST AND OVERSEER OF THE RESERVE FOR OVER 35 YEARS IS VERY ILL. WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING CAMPERS FOR MARCH, APRIL, AND MAY, 2018.
WHO? - We are a US family who has been offering camping on our 200 acre mountain of rain forest since 1974. You will be camping deep in the Talamanca Mountains beyond the reach of electricity. Because our reserve is remote and hard to find, it is a magical experience, like living in a time warp. You'll see that people here live as their great, great grandparents did one hundred years ago, except that they now have one solar panel which enables them to charge their cell phones for more pictures! There is no internet service on The Reserve. The campers who have paid to stay here have all contributed to keeping the jungle alive and growing. Your dollars are all used for keeping the reserve protected and for paying salaries to local people, making their lives better. Our former names were: Talamanca Treks, costaricabackpacker.com, www.geocities.com/vereh_ecotourism, and Camping San Augustin.
WHAT'S GOING ON...
February and March have the best weather so we are only open in those two months. If you want to camp in other months it may be possible with advance notice and reservations. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Payments can be made through PayPal.
A new composting toilet (out house) has been completed. We hope you will enjoy the beauty of the bamboo privacy and surrounding gardens. An improved trail to the waterfall and water source is being designed. Construction of the trail will be on going in March. Campers are using the kitchen and shower in the main house while the new facilities are being designed.
