  • Description


    I love nature and I like to be sorrounded by her. The land where we are creating the camping belonged to my grandfather and I would like to keep it. I love San Pedro because of it biodiveristy in flora and fauna and
    I would like to create a comfortable space sorrounded by native plants, where guests can spend a lot of their time doing birdwatching or chill near the river.
