Like a tree house nestled between two ancient mango trees overlooking an isolated, pristine tropical forest river valley(the river runs through the farm) in the mountains of the Southern Cordillera Central and yet only 30 minutes to town and 45 minutes to beaches in Guanica. There is no environment or abode on the island that can match it's unique beauty and serenity. This is more than just a place to stay--it is an experience you will savor for days after

Stedet
Warm days (75-85F) and cool nights (65-70F) with virtually no mosquitos to hinder your commune with nature (no screens necessary!). No air conditioning necessary. It really is a perfect climate. Explore the miles of trails that meander through the forest, perhaps into the edges of the Guilarte Forest Reserve, or journey to the undiscovered beaches of the Guanica Forest Reserve just a short pleasant drive down the mountain (45min). Then return to your mountain retreat to take a dip in the pure, refreshing waters of the farms river just in time to watch the moon rise over the mountains immersed in a symphony of jungle night sounds. The best of both Caribbean worlds! There is no environment or abode on the island quite like Casa Kadam. Like a tree house nestled between two ancient mango trees, this simple but charming abode has two levels (sleeping/living area and kitchen/bath area). Two balconies with a hammock and lounge chairs extend the inner space to connect you with a vista of the forest that surrounds you and the sound of the rushing river below.

Gjestetilgang
River swimming holes, miles of well maintained trails to explore the forest and views, fresh organically farm-grown produce available for purchase, solar hot water, indoor state-of-the-art composting toilet and the incredible have-to-experience-to-believe sights and sounds of the mountain jungle life.
Papo offers guided yoga and meditation classes every morning at 9:00am. Suggested donation is $10/person. When he brings you into Casa Kadam be sure to let him know if you wish to attend either or both classes. When both eco-cottages are occupied Sana offers Meditations for World Peace from 7 - 7:45 pm in the Peace Pavilion free of charge. Let Papo know if you are interested in participating.

IMPORTANT ARRIVAL INSTRUCTIONS:

Rent a compact (not economy) with GOOD TIRES. Be sure the agent checks the tread before you leave.

Papo will be available to receive your call at 3:30 after you have done your grocery shopping. 516-784-7972- -he will guide you by phone from there.
Do NOT use google maps to get to our location as it will take you on non-existent routes that will get you lost!
We will park at Casa del Mundo and then guide you along the path to Casa Kadam---a pleasant 10 minute walk. Please bring flashlights, day packs and appropriate foot ware for hiking. We will escort you to the Casita. Guests need to purchase in town all the food (we provide organic coffee, sugar) you will need for your stay prior to arrival, but if you're booking an extended stay, you can always journey down the mountain to Peñuelas (30 minutes) for more supplies or to eat out. We recommend quests to bring flashlights, flip fops and a warm shirt or sweater for the sometimes cool mountain breezes. Best to carry your belongings out in day packs. Wheeled luggage will NOT roll over the trail.

And, most importantly, be prepared to immerse yourself in the tranquility and beauty of this unique high mountain valley.
There are 3 eco-casitas located on this model farm--Finca Caminos y Moradas--dedicated to ecologically sustainable cultivation of cacao, coffee, vegetables and diverse tropical fruits. Depending on the season Papo usually has organic produce available for sale. He needs a days notice in order to harvest for you.
The Finca also provides a space and healing environment for various retreats including meditation/yoga workshops. And check out our website: https://puertoricorainforestretreat.com.

Peñuelas, Puerto Rico

Barrio Barreal is one of the last truly tranquil, safe and authentically campesino communities on the island. Its a patchwork of small family farms and native forest in the still ecologically intact, pure watershed of the Rio Lucia (Barreal). It borders the Guilarte Forest Reserve---a moderate hike from the farm---and together with the Guanica Forest Reserve (10 as-the-crow-flies miles away) is home to 200+ bird species---some rare or endangered.

My husband, Papo, and myself are musicians by trade but here on the Finca we are establishing an alternative small scale agriculture with terraces, cacao forest, and an ecotourism integrated with the local community and environment. We are meditation teachers that have been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for 18 years. We sponsor retreats of all kinds here at this tranquil corner of the island. Guests are invited to participate in both these retreats, or Finca activities but, of course, just hanging, exploring the jungle trails, or a quick trip to the Guanica beaches are also great options.

Under oppholdet ditt
Sana & Papo, musicians by trade (both fully bilingual), live and work on the Finca (farm) and are always available to answer any questions or address any concern. They are well versed in all the local customs, local flora and fauna (Papo is a trained forester) have a close relationship with their neighbors, and will be glad to recommend short excursions from the farm (1 hour or less) to visit local points of interest.
When our cook is available we offer custom, catered meals of traditional, local food using organic, local farm fresh ingredients (truly farm to table!).
Our local friend and caterer, Daly, when available, will freshly prepare and serve in your kitchen traditional Puerto Rican dishes and she offers one curry vegan dinner. All her platters @ $18 per person.
Daly requests that you make your inquiries via email directly from your personal email 2 weeks prior to your stay. Occasionally they can accept reservations with only one week notice (but less likely).
