Come stay on an island where the jungle meets the beach! ALL meals are included and you will enjoy a very authentic Costa Rican experience. Our unique, rustic cabin is right on the beach! For best results--leave your electronics at home :)

Жилье
This unique cabin is handmade from coconut trees, and therefore is called the house of coconut. The structure is secure but open-aired--no glass on the windows. We often have hummingbirds, butterflies and birds fly right through our house when the shutters are open! This very remote location is a naturalist's paradise! Be prepared to wake up to the monkeys howling, and see sloths, iguanas, toucans and a multitude of other flora and fauna. Most mornings you can see dolphins in the Caribbean sea!

Our volunteer bunk house has 3 rooms and 5 beds. We are off-grid so we use only solar power. The kitchen is outside and open aired with a wood stove. One bathroom with a shower is attached to the bunkhouse and uses reclaimed rainwater. There is also a second compostable toilet on the property.

Our property is located on a very remote island so getting here can be a bit of a challenge, but it will be well worth it! We will be here to help every step of the way. Plan on traveling to the nearest town (Bataan) and we can meet you there!

Что доступно гостю
This unique island location has no hotels, restaurants, stores, or cars, however the Casa de Coco has one of the best cooks on the island and we provide 3 authentic Costa Rican meals a day, and an afternoon coffee break! The basic Costa Rican diet is rice, beans, and vegetables (organic, vegetarian, vegan, non-GMO, Fair Trade, gluten and MSG free). We can accommodate most diets.

You have complete access of the bunkhouse, the outdoor kitchen, and bathrooms, and full access to the beach and island!

Важная информация
We are a voluntourism project and your stay will be most rewarding when participating! We'd like your help with preparing meals, collecting firewood, and general cleaning and maintenance of the beach, bunk house, property and community.

If you want a tour to see the sea turtles, the charge is $10/ person and all the money goes to a local conservation camp. We provide optional "Casa de Coco Rustico" tours ($10 each with additional charges for bait, boat rental, transportation costs and tips). These include fishing tours and rainforest / banana plantation hikes.

We are very remote, so transportation to the island can be tricky. Budget for $50/person for transportation from Bataan to the island (often it is less). This includes the taxi and the scenic boat ride down the Pacuare river to the mouth of the Caribbean sea. There are more details about transportation in the location/directions part of the site. (you will have access to this information once you book)

We recommend leaving your electronics at home, but if you can’t, we recommend bringing an external battery pack. We do not have any electricity but we have a small solar panel for an emergency phone. Minimal wireless internet is available on the beach, but be sure to check with your phone provider beforehand.

Bringing some items will greatly enhance your stay, such as:
1. head lamp
2. rubber boots
3. towel, sheets and pillow or sleeping bag
4. rain Poncho
5. bug spray (organic is preferred).

Hats and sun resistant clothing are preferred instead of sunscreen (these chemicals kill the plankton and harm the wildlife). Quick dry clothes and flip flops for the beach are great, and good walking shoes that can get wet for patrols are recommended.

If you are able to bring any of the above items and leave them as a donation for the project, then we will be able to offer a discount--please inquire when booking.

The wildlife viewing here is amazing and it happens year round, however if your entire goal is to see a sea turtle, then the best time is March-October and often sever night patrols may be necessary. Viewing critically endangered species is a rare and wonderful opportunity-- but is also highly unpredictable! We cannot guarantee that you will see these majestic creatures but we will certainly help you to increase your odds.

There are about 30 locals who live on the island, and there are no other hotels, restaurants, stores or cars on the island. Your stay with us helps to provide economic sustainability for the locals, and 10-15% of your stay costs will be paid to the locals for working in the project. This helps to save the turtles by providing alternative incomes to the locals so they do not need to poach the turtles for their livelihoods.

The community is very poor and if you are able to bringing a few donations it will greatly enhance the lives of the people living here, such as first aid supplies (single use cold packs, alcohol swabs, antibiotic creams, bandages etc.), gumbo boots, school supplies for the local school including books, and chocolates are always greatly appreciated :)

Our guests are the most important factor in our sea turtle conservation efforts and we are very grateful for your support for both our project and our neighborhood!

My spouse Gaby and I are very passionate about the environment and social justice. We live minimally and organically without electricity because we are located on a prime nesting beach for critically endangered Leatherback sea turtles. Our lifestyle is deliberate so that we may do all that we can to help these majestic creatures. Too much artificial light discourages the nesting mamas and confuses the hatchlings from returning to the ocean. Our dream is to have a conservation project-- not just for sea turtles but also for all the animals that we share our planet with. In order to do this we must help the local inhabitants with alternative sustainable income so they no longer need to poach the turtles. By choosing to come here you will help to save the sea turtles by providing a source of income for the locals, and by learning what you can do to help save the turtles. In the future we hope to expand to home-stays where you stay with all the locals on the island and all the money goes directly to them. We are in a unique position to offer both volun-tourism and vacation experiences. You can customize your stay-- anywhere from helping us to improve and construct the project to just relaxing in a hammock on the beach! We would be very grateful for your visit and would enjoy sharing our passions with you! Thank you for saving the turtles! Sherri
