Costa Rica rainforest waterfront cabins

Responsible travel: Costa Rica rainforest waterfront cabins

Environment

Our 480 acres of primary rainforest is located in the Piedras Blancas National park. It has many animals, insects, trees and plants to be protected. Some of the animals are endangered like the Scarlet Maccaw and the Jaguar. The rainforest itself provides rain, medicines (many yet to be discovered. Scientists believe we only know 1% of what we can learn) and the oxygen we breath. Can anything be more important to our continued existence. We work closely with the national parks service, provide facilities when working in our area and notify them of any poachers or illegal activities in the park or marine santuary.

All of our electrical requirements are met with Solar and Hydro power. Our hot water showers are passive solar heating with a gas heater backup that only works on demand. All grey water is distributed into dry wells. All fertilizer is natural chicken manure.

Our future goals are to:
- Reassess and improve our best practices program on the continual basis.
- To educate and promote awareness of the importance to our continued health and life that the rainforest biodiversity provides.
- Develop with permission of MongaBay an easy to read and informative pamphlet describing the distinctive and fragile ecosystem of the rainforest and on the interrelationships of plants, animals and insects of the rainforest. All profits from the sale of this pamplet to benifit directly the Piedras Blancas National Park Service.
- Certification by national and international ecotourism organizations.

As responsible stewards we are obliged to take nothing from the ecosystem that surrounds us excepting photographs and memories.

Community

We will continue to use best practices for sustainable tourism in the education and training of our employees. We have had a very positive influence on their lives and the lives of their families by helping them understand concepts and reasons for waste management, recycling, limited water use, correct treatment of grey water and black water and the use of alternative energy sources.

We have implemented and funded a program with our employees of maintaining and repairing the local rural school. We are in an area of Costa Rica with very little employment. We provide employment for 3 families and purchase as much local produce and products as possible. Organic chickens, fish, eggs, pork, coconut oil for cooking, fruit and vegetables to name a few. We purchase directly and sell artisan items from local indigenious indians to guests.

As part of our offerings, we encourage guests to visit a local Tica (Costa Rican woman), experience how she lives in the rainforest and learn from her, a self taught naturalist, about some of the rainforest animals and plants. She has learned from her mother many of the native plants used in indigenious medicines and is happy to pass on this knowledge.

The story of the provider of Costa Rica rainforest waterfront cabins

We purchased the property in 2003 with the intent of making it into an eco lodge/retreat. After 1 years of intense repairs and building we opened in 2005 with two cabins available. In 2010 we added one more. We strive to provide a unique and remote, yet accessible location for guests to explore and appreciate the undeveloped part of Costa Rica and the primary rainforest. Established in harmony with the natural environment, our goal is to provide to travelers seeking a unique location and experience, the opportunity to observe wildlife and natural wonders in a pristine and sustainable fashion while enjoying the comfortable and spacious accommodations.
