Casa del Mundo is nestled in the tropical forest of the South Central Mountains of Puerto Rico in a pristine river valley. The original Jibaro farm house was lovingly renovated for modern use while retaining it's original rustic feel. Located on the Finca Caminos & Moradas dedicated to ecological farming, yoga/meditation and habitat regeneration as contributions to the healing of our society and planet. This is more than just a place to stay--it is an experience to be savored for days after.

Le logement
Warm days (75-85F), cool nights (65-70F) of the tropical mountain jungle with virtually no mosquitos (no screens necessary!) to hinder your commune with nature. No air conditioning necessary. It really is a perfect climate!
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.
Explore the miles of trails that meander through the forest, perhaps into the edges of the Guilarte Forest Reserve or, for those choosing to do an extended stay, journey to the undiscovered beaches of Guanica a short pleasant drive down the mountain (45 min). Then return to your mountain retreat to take a dip in the pure refreshing waters of the finca's river just in time to see the moon rise above the mountains immersed in a symphony of jungle night sounds. The best of both Caribbean worlds!
There is no other environ or abode on the island quite like Casa del Mundo. Once the Jibaro family dwelling of a small coffee farm, it has ben renovated for modern use yet still retains it's rustic feel. We offer two rental Casitas: CasaMundo (2 -6 persons) and Casa Kadam (2-4) and now an open air hut, El Bohio, immersed within the forest cacao grove, each with unique characteristics.
The 2 casitas with solar hot showers, state-of-the-art eco/composting toilets and fully equipped kitchen. The Peace Pavilion-- a large roofed meditation/yoga pavilion-- is available for guests (when not being used for special events/retreats).
When available our our local friend and cook Daly will prepare and serve you in Casa del Mundo, traditional, local food using Papo's organic produce. She does offer one Vegan/vegetarian curried platter. Daly's meals feature Sana's Frituritas de Guineo with curry sauce- Papo's organic green bananas pan friend and served with a tomato based onion curry sauce. Daly drives up the mountain with all of her supplies and prepares for you an In-house meal. Most folks love to put in an order for their arrival meal.
All of Daly's meals are $18 per person.
Please make meal reservations at least 1 week ahead of time.

Accès des voyageurs
River swimming holes, miles of well- maintained hiking trails to explore the forest and views, organically farm-grown fresh produce available for purchase, solar hot showers, indoor state-of-the-art eco/composting toilets and the incredible have-to-experience-to-believe sounds & sights of mountain jungle life.

Autres remarques
Guests must purchase in town all the food (we provide organic coffee, sugar) they will need for their stay prior to arrival, but if your booking an extended stay you can journey down the mountain to Peñuelas (30 minutes) for more supplies or to eat out in Ponce (1 hour) or elsewhere.

We highly recommend guests bring flip flops and a warm shirt or sweater for the sometimes cool mountain breezes

Barrio Barreal is one of the last truly tranquil, safe and authentically campesino communities on the island. It is a patch work of small farms and native forest in the still intact, pure watershed of the Rio Lucia (Barreal). It borders the Guilarte Forest Reserve---a moderate hike from the finca.

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.
