Other activitiesJungle Life is not for everyone! We want a near-to-nature experience in order to sink into an appreciation of earth's natural cycles. We live in peace with all creatures here...including the less-desired ones! If this doesn't seem like your cup of tea, a luxury resort may be more your style. We are a jungle lodge, permaculture project and located in a surf town. Also, when the rain comes down in the rainforest (it has a tendency to do that!) it comes down HARD! Temperatures can be much cooler than during the daytime. Bring warmer layers for any rainy nights.
