Volcan house description

Mount Totumas Cloud Forest is a 400 reserve bordering directly to La Amistad National Park. Guests can enjoy 8 marked trails through the reserve with access into the adjacent national park. Hotsprings and magnificent scenery. Amistad NP is Central America's largest protected mountain wilderness and on the property there are keystone species present such as Resplendent Quetzals, Three Wattled Bellbirds, Baird's Tapir, Mantled Howler Monkey, Black and Crested Guan, White-Faced Capuchin monkeys, spider monkeys, mountain lions, ocelots and even Jaguars have been spotted in neighboring national park. We are in a remote wilderness location with cabins and lodge that offers all the basic amenities thanks to our sustainable off the grid micro hydro power plant that taps the power of a nearby stream.

For your convenience the house has a kitchen and Wi-Fi. You will enjoy the mountain view and fresh mountain air!

Visitors will wake up to the calls of howler monkeys and have 30 km of trails at their doorstep. Horseback riding, hiking.

Access to the site requires travelling 9.8 km on a 4WD road. We provide transport from Volcan and can help you with the logistics of your trip.

There is no nearby store or town. If you are looking for an isolated wilderness experience than our homestead is just right for you. You will bring with you groceries and supplies when you visit and leave civilization behind for the duration of your visit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My wife and I have a passion for wilderness preservation. I am a biologist and have 15 years experience of travel and work in Latin America and speak fluent Spanish. We see ourselves as steward to this remote wilderness and have immensely enjoyed meeting guests who have come to share this place with us. Low impact sustainable development is the vision for the property going forward. We are avid bird watchers and fascinated with the flora and fauna from the moths that circle the lights at night to the howler monkeys on the tree tops. We spend many hours hiking the property and learning about the local ecology which I am happy to share with guests when I am on site.

Why the Owner Chose Volcan:
We purchased the property due to its remote location and ecological assets. Mount Totumas Cloud Forest is 400 acres and is a mosaic of pastures, second growth forest and virgin cloud forest. The common are of the site where the homestead and cabins are located are nestled at the base of Mount Totumas with spectacular views of the surrounding national park. The temperature is spring time year round with cool mornings and afternoons that reach 75-80F degrees. Fertile volcanic soil with three perennial streams provide great conditions for gardening. It was the integrity of the ecology that drew me to this site.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The isolated wilderness experience is pristine and can be enjoyed from the comfort of our cozy homestead. There are hiking trails that lead you into virgin forests with trees well over 100 feet high and other trails that take you to waterfalls and over pastures with spectacular scenery of the adjacent national park. Off the grid and far from any other human development provides visitors with a truly unique experience where nature is the dominant feature. We have horses and a small number of cows and grow coffee in a small coffee grove. Visitors are free to harvest any produce from our organic garden just a few feet from the home.
