The Experience

We are a local couple living in Barra de Pacuare in Caribbean coast, between sea, jungle and river. Our place have a big garden, animals, and a small grocery store. We also host. We offer comfortable corners, music, books, and games. We are surrounded by volunteering projects (sea turtles, manatees), so we meet international people. We want to develop our place on the most sustainable way and want to be part of biodiversity protection.

Patri is a great host. Together with her family they made me feel very welcome. I learned a lot about the local culture and lifestyle. I recommend the reserve if what you are looking for is tranquility and getting away from everything. I recommend bringing protection for mosquitoes and other insects. I also recommend bringing allergy medicine. I didn't know I was allergic to mosquito bites. Don't forget sunscreen. Beside this, the place and the experience were incredible.

The time I had at the reserve was extraordinary. The beautiful place is very remote so it's best to buy a SIM card from Kolby beforehand. Also be sure to pack mosquito spray. As a vegan had many options to eat and I felt very welcomed by Patricia and the local community. So, if you want to reconnect with nature for a few weeks, enjoy working with animals and doing something for the environment, this is the place for you. Thanks Patri for the great time!
