The retreat is situated in the tropical rainforest, amidst pristine rivers, lakes, volcanoes, and a private, majestic cascade. This serves as an ideal setting for reestablishing a connection with nature and discovering inner tranquility.

This 14-hectare / 34-acre property encompasses ecological construction practices, self-sustainability, and off-grid living, all of which are seamlessly incorporated with a natural reserve.  The property is well-equipped to host retreats and is event-ready, with the capacity to comfortably accommodate up to 50 individuals. The property, which contains numerous creeks and several small waterfalls, is bordered by two rivers, one of which is smaller and the other larger. It encompasses 14 hectares or approximately 34 acres. The property is accessible via a bridge that spans the smaller river, and a road that extends for approximately 500 meters to the property’s terminus. A protected reserve rests beyond, guaranteeing privacy and tranquility. Approximately 60% of the land is comprised of virgin forest with towering native trees, primarily on the left side of the road. The right side, which is approximately 30%, is characterized by secondary forest interspersed with fruit trees, progressively transitioning into a burgeoning food forest. The remaining 10 percent, which is situated on the left side, is designated for sleeping accommodations.

Water is plentiful on our property, with two rivers forming natural boundaries with neighboring lands. For drinking water, we rely on our own pristine spring, which remains robust and consistent year-round, exhibiting consistent pressure regardless of the season.
