Accommodations at our site include:

  • Two private, “glamping” (covered deck) tents, each with one double bed and hammocks. – SOLD OUT

  • The possibility for smaller tents upon request. – Contact Us.
  • DIY Camping – Included in registration cost

We have designated tent sites throughout the grounds, some in the main campground itself and others scattered in remote locations for those seeking a more tranquil and immersive experience. We have heated showers fed by fresh spring water w/lovely views of the forest and waterless composting toilets that provide nutrients for landscaping and fruit trees.


We’ll be eating healthy vegetarian food, with fish as an occasional option.  Our food will be sourced locally as much as possible, to take advantage of the rich food possibilities of the Costa Rican countryside.  If you have a special diet, please contact us to see if we can accommodate your needs.
