Simple thatched cabanas run by local people for the trickle of tourists that visit this area, making for a very special experience.

This is the perfect base for exploring the surrounding flora and fauna, meeting the remote tribes still living in the mountains, and some of the individuals that make up the 170 local families connected with the enterprise.
