Like a tree house nestled between two mango trees overlooking an isolated, pristine tropical forest river valley in the mountains. Located on Finca Caminos & Moradas ( 22 acres ) dedicated to ecological farming, meditation and habitat regeneration as contributions to the healing of our society and planet. This a not a place for parties. It is a place for unwinding, quiet reflection and communion with nature. .Casa Kadam is located a 10 minute hike from the parking area.

Stedet
Warm days (75-85F) and cool nights (65-70F) with virtually no mosquitos to hinder your commune with nature (no screens necessary!). No air conditioning necessary. It really is a perfect climate. There are 3 eco-cottages on this property and and the privacy of each dwelling is very important. Explore the miles of hiking trails that meander through the forest, perhaps into the edges of the Guilarte Forest Reserve, or journey to the undiscovered beaches of the Guanica Forest Reserve just a short pleasant drive down the mountain (1 hr). Then return to your mountain retreat to take a dip in the pure, refreshing waters (we schedule allotted privacy time slots for each eco-cottage) of the farm river just in time to watch the moon rise over the mountains immersed in a symphony of jungle night sounds. The best of both Caribbean worlds! There is no environment or abode on the island quite like Casa Kadam.
Like a tree house nestled between two ancient mango trees, this simple but charming abode has two levels (sleeping/living area and kitchen/bath area). Two balconies with a hammock and lounge chairs extend the inner space to connect you with a vista of the forest that surrounds you and the sound of the rushing river below.
One of the only 2 pristine rivers left on the island, a branch of the Guayanes River flows through the property. The principal reason for the extensive pollution of the rivers here on the island are the use of conventional toilets that not only waste hundreds of gallons of water, an endangered resource on the island, but the run off from septic systems overflows into the aquifers hence polluting the rivers and springs.
Papo has been mastering the construction of composting toilets to the point where architects on the island have traveled to this remote spot to study his design which reveals an esthetic, state of the art eco-toilet that is bug less and odorless and that, once fully composted, produces a natural pathogen less, odorless fertilizer for the organic gardens he has created on mountain terraces.

Gjestetilgang
River swimming holes, miles of well maintained hiking trails to explore the forest and views, fresh organically farm-grown produce available for purchase, solar hot water, indoor state-of-the-art composting toilet and the incredible have-to-experience-to-believe sights and sounds of the mountain jungle life.

We offer 3 pm meditation classes when requested. Suggested donation is $10/person that goes into a fund for establishing a meditation center in Ponce. Please give us 24 hour advance notice if you wish to take the class. Participants are required to wear masks and maintain distancing during class.

Beliggenhet

Peñuelas, Puerto Rico

Barrio Barreal is one of the last truly tranquil, safe and authentically campesino communities on the island. Its a patchwork of small family farms and native forest in the still ecologically intact, pure watershed of the Rio Lucia (Barreal). It borders the Guilarte Forest Reserve---a moderate hike from the farm---and together with the Guanica Forest Reserve (10 as-the-crow-flies miles away) is home to 200+ bird species---some rare or endangered.

My husband, Papo, and myself are musicians by trade but here on the Finca we are establishing an alternative small scale agriculture with terraces, cacao forest, and an ecotourism integrated with the local community and environment. We are meditation teachers that have been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for 18 years. We sponsor retreats of all kinds here at this tranquil corner of the island. Guests are invited to participate in both these retreats, or Finca activities but, of course, just hanging, exploring the jungle trails, or a quick trip to the Guanica beaches are also great options.

Under oppholdet ditt
Sana & Papo, musicians by trade (both fully bilingual), live and work on the Finca (farm) and are always available to answer any questions or address any concern. They are well versed in all the local customs, local flora and fauna (Papo is a trained forester) have a close relationship with their neighbors, and will be glad to recommend short excursions from the farm (1 hour or less) to visit local points of interest.
When our cook is available we offer custom, catered meals of traditional, local food using organic, local farm fresh ingredients (truly farm to table!).

Our local friend and caterer, Daly, when available, will freshly prepare and serve in your kitchen traditional Puerto Rican dishes and she offers one curry vegan dinner. All her platters @ $18 per person.
Daly requests that you make your inquiries via email directly from your personal email 2 weeks prior to your stay. Occasionally they can accept reservations with only one week notice (but less likely).

Daily 3 pm Meditation classes are available by senior Kadampa meditation instructors. We offer private guided meditation instruction for both beginning and experienced meditators. The cost is a donation of $10 (45 min. class) towards the establishment of a Center in Ponce.
