Accommodations

Housing

You will be staying in a traditional Ngobe house, elevated off the ground on stilts with a thatch roof. There are three “cabanas” each with their own secure porch, two bedrooms, and clean toilet latrine. The homes are located on the sandy beach across the river from the community and offer privacy and security with a morning view of the bay.

Each cabana is prepared with enough potable water for drinking and rainwater for showering. We also provide mattress pads and bug nets for sleeping comfortably. While these accommodations are far from 5-star, the beds are comfortable, and clean. Each cabana has its own solar panel and lights capable of charging phones and small tablets. Larger electronics such as cameras and laptops can be charged in the village.

Meals

All your meals will be prepared by local community members who specialize in preparing meals for the regular local travelers who move up and down the river on the water taxis. These meals are simple yet filling and generally include eggs, fried bread, and coffee. Lunches are likely to be rice with beans and either chicken or fish. Dinners include bananas or other vegetable, rice, and a meat. Light snacks such as trail mix is also provided and you will have a chance to purchase more before entering the community. You will be full each day.
