About this listing
Camping cabin located in a secluded valley bordering Los Quetzales National Park, on the Division River and next to Three Seeds Organic Farm. Private soccer field, eco-tours, culinary & permaculture workshops available, including chocolate making!
Secluded and furnished/equipped camping-style cabin located within Buenaventura Eco-Park, on the border of Los Quetzales National Park and on the edge of a majestic clear-water mountain river (Division River). Great for families, volunteers, honeymooners, researchers (biologists/anthropologists), artists, authors, and folks on sabbatical. It is also perfect for vacationers wanting to really soak in the rural farming culture and rainforest and looking to experience the Costa Rican rural countryside away from tourists. This is a 100% no artificial ingredients, back-to-nature type of place owned by a Central American-U.S. family currently working in the United States.
The cabin is located between the towns of El Llano and El Brujo, on the southern border of the Los Quetzales National Park, which has 150,000 acres of premontane, montane and cloud forest and about 50 ft. There are beautiful gardens and organic fruit trees on the 2.5 acre yard.
This destination is especially great for families with children since there are children to play with on the nearby farms and ample space to run around. There's even a soccer field on the property and there are waterfalls less than 15 min. hike up nearby creeks within the Buenaventura Ecological Park & Reserve (additional day pass fee at half price applies*)
