  • Description

    Description

    We are a 400 acre nature reserve that directly borders La Amistad National Park in western Panama. Located in a remote valley we offer guests accommodations at the doorstep of cloud forest habitat where over 40km of trails provide access to observe the unique flora and fauna of the region. There are waterfalls and hotsprings within a short walking distance. We are off the grid and generate our own electricity with a micro hydro pelton wheel. Hot water, electricity and internet service available to all our guests. A hummingbird deck with over 16 species of hummingbirds documented to date. 3 cabin accommodations and a lodge and restaurant on site. A 4WD road provides access to our location.

    We have a greenhouse with a hydroponic vegetable growing operation that provides produce for our restaurant and staff and a large garden area. We produce our own coffee in our coffee plantation where currently 4000 trees have been planted.

    What else ...

    We are in a remote location bordering a national park. There are no villages or towns nearby. The ideal volunteer is someone who desires to be in a pristine location and who loves nature and is comfortable with being in a remote isolated location. Lot's of interaction possible with guests and employed staff. The ambiance here is intimate and friendly.

    Weather is cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon. We are 1900m above sea level so fleece and cap for the mornings recommended.
