Located on the banks of the Rio Trancura you will hear the soothing sounds of the water while you relax or enjoy the company of friends in one of our communal areas.

Communal space is abundant…

indoors and out — all centered around our open-air quincho, which serves as the perfect place to gather at the end of a long day to meet new people, eat great food, share stories, and relax by the fire with a glass of wine or cerveza.


We offer several lodging options as part of your trip. From camping areas tucked into the trees to dorm rooms to private river suites with balcony views of the river.


Want to save your budget and kayak daily, eat chef cooked meals, and enjoy the retreat luxuries. Camping is within a beautiful forest with access to treehouse showers, bath house, and all retreat amenities. Bring your camping equipment or you can rent.

Treehouse Dorms

Want to save your budget and sleep in a bed? We built dorm style lodging tucked within the forest. Decorated with murals representing local flora and fauna. Just outside of the dorms is a treehouse shower. Shared lodging idea for groups or travelers on a budget.

Retreat Hosteria

Originally, built as a fisherman’s lodge David Hughes bought the hosteria to start the kayaker’s retreat dream. Centrally located hosteria rooms each have private en suite bathroom, comfy beds, gear drying and outdoor lounge areas. Room options include lodging for couples, groups of 3, and groups of 5 persons.

River Suites

A cozy riverside geodesic dome with en suite bathroom, view from your bed, artistic designs, and private deck overlooking river. The design was dreamt up to bring an open-air feel to a secure en suite structure. A luxurious dome with French doors was the solution.

Popular Rio Suites

Topping the list of luxury options are our recently added river suites with French doors allowing for open-air night sleeping, en suite bathroom, comfortable bedding, and of course the riverside privacy and feel.

Cool Places to Hangout

A few favorites are the quincho, the movie/yoga/class dome, bath house deck in afternoon sun, river kitchen and fire pit, the game area, tree house showers, reception office, and a variety of secret gems down by the river.
