Yucca Yurt

Adults-only vacation home in Río Grande with fitness center
This private yurt on the property not far from the farmhouse features a private living space with a king size bed, and bunk beds with one single bed on top and double bed on the bottom, great for a family or a group of friends. There is electric, a compost toilet outdoors looking towards the peak of the rainforest and an outdoor rainforest shower coming soon. Just a ten to fifteen minute walk to the river, said to be one of the cleanest rivers in the Western Hemisphere.

Things to remember:

- Ubers and taxis can be hard to find, make sure you plan your rides ahead of time. Having your own rental vehicle is advised.

- If you're a light sleeper, bring some earplugs.

- Mosquitoes are abundant especially during the rainy season. Bring bug spray.

- Critters and crawlies tend to sneak in even through the tiniest of holes so do not be surprised if you see one. We do not have any dangerous critters or crawlies living in the rainforest.

-Power and water outages are normal in the area especially during bad weather. We only have back-up power (solar) at the main house. We are in the process of getting more solar panels to power the entire property.

- Our dog Tootsie is a Rottweiler-Labrador mix. She's the biggest sweetheart but she can be a little mouthy sometimes. She's great with kids though! We also have plenty of cats, chickens, ducks and a turkey.

- There is a designated parking area. Make sure you leave space for other guests to park. We're in the process of renovating our parking area to accommodate more cars in the future.

- Wifi is only available in common areas.

2/5 Poor

Hard to find, harder to get water
We went to three different addresses connected to the listing before trying several different phone numbers listed. The first couple went to voice-mail. The address was not correct, the contact was not accurate, and no check in instructions we received. Eventually I received a call back with helpful directions. Upon arrival the yurt was extremely hot and there was no running water. The property was gorgeous and the pets adorable, but the lack of ability to shower after hiking and then sleeping in a toasty yurt ruined the experience.

Beautiful area, wonderful staff
Great stay at La Casa de Vida Natural! The property was beautiful and the accommodation was comfortable. The staff and volunteers were helpful with providing recommendations, making us feel welcome, and even teaching a yoga class for us! Would definitely recommend for those wanting to connect with nature!

Cool experience
The yurt was a neat experience. Tucked away near the Yunque but not far from civilization and the food truck park 👌 the place was cute, ran a little humid because of the rain but it wasn't bad. Didn't have big issues with bugs or anything, and the property animals were a plus too.

Glorified Camping with a Private Outhouse/Shower
I compare this to glamping...and I loved it! We chose the yurt which is HUGE! King size bed then a double with a twin on top bunk bed. TWO sitting areas and a full dining table. They have a changing screen if you need privacy fyi. The toilet and shower are out back and yours to use solely. I don't even think someone could see you if they had binoculars but there is a door on the toilet and a shower curtain you can pull around if you want. Everything was cleaner than I expected. Bedding and towels provided. There aren't any dishes but they have a a common kitchen area you can use up at the main house where you check in. There is a pitcher and bowl provided for easy rinsing if you need. There are two floor fans that keep it pretty cool at night actually but the day time gets a bit muggy as would be expected. There are rescue dogs and cats as well as ducks and roosters running around. BE CAREFUL the black cat will steal your heart! I was there only 2 nights and I cried leaving her lol! If I didn't live state-side I would've adopted her no problem. Overall I absolutely loved it and would love to go again!
