  • Description


    I'm happy to announce the beginning of this Camping and Agriculture School which will be dedicated to agricultural work to teach future generations the importance of natural resources in Puerto Rico while camping around “Isla del Encanto”

    Come visit us and stay in a comfy woodhouse in San Lorenzo southeast a place conformed by the “Sierra Mountain System” with rivers nearby beautiful views and nice weather. Here you will learn agriculture production technics, ornamental gardening, and the uses of medicinal plants.

    At the moment I can only offer a stay for two-person per month in the house but all Workawayers nearby can coordinate a visit or schedule for a camping trip.
