Great location

Backpacker ecofriendly environment. Awesome views of El Yunque. 2 Minutes to rainforest and only 10 minutes to the local beaches of Luquillo. We are 45 minutes to the ferries that will take you to Culebra and Vieques. Private property with chickens, 2 cats and a black Lab named Luna and Maya
Our personal home is on the property. We are close by for any assistance. We have lots of fruits & vegetables (passion fruit, bananas, pineapple, mangos..).
We are striving to be as low impact as possible.

The space
There are 2 bedrooms (suitable for 3 people). Or if you feel like sleeping in a hammock there are two hammocks available in the house.
There is a small refrigerator and wifi within walking distance at the main house.
There is a compost toilet and solar lights. As part of our efforts to evolve in the permaculture process we are developing a humanure composting for our gardens. Our hopes are that our guests feel that they are part of the process in living a sustainable life.
Local, rural place for environmentally loving people and backpackers.
Very authentic and unique Puerto Rican mountain experience.

Guest access
People will be able to access the whole house including the gardens.
It is recommended to rent a car.

Other things to note
Bathroom is built into a tree. Compost toilet. No hot water. Should we lose water there is access to a private outdoor shower.

Very rural country side. There are neighbors down the hill. Our neighbors are country people who have horses, cows, sheep, chickens ect. Also on the weekends you may hear local traditional church music and singing.

I am a Montessori school teacher by trade. Right now my husband and I are on a new venture opening a vacation rental on our 7 acre property. We live on the property with our 2 children and several animals. We have a garden that we tend to, lots of fruit trees and we are beginning a permaculture garden. We love the island and its people and are very excited to be able to share our love for the island to others. On our property we have a guest house that has 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. We love to surf, hike in the rainforest and explore our beautiful island.
