This is an amazing campsite. The roads to it are good compared to other Puerto Rican mountain roads. I arrived in a small sedan just fine. There is a full bathroom available, just a few minutes away from the site. The campsite is beautiful, secluded, with a river flowing 25 feet away. A+
Paradise in the jungle!
Drew is great, campsite was amazing! We arrived late and Drew let us sleep in a room of the common lounge area. His instructions to the site were thorough and Drew was quick to respond to any questions we had. 10 out of 5 stars! Definitely coming back on our next trip, thanks Drew!!
The long drive to the coffee farm in the beautiful Las Marias mountains was fun and challenging. Staying at a coffee farm we hoped for some kind initial engagement the host. We were also hoping to learn about the farm and thier practices. You have to rent a car in Puerto Rico to get here, this is not a convenient location where you just go to camp. We were there solely to visit a coffee farm. That being said we did recieve some wonderful hospitality and a wealth of information about the flora, fauna, and culture from the temporary workers there. We shared a common space which allowed for some quality interactions. The campsite provided is next to a river and is a fairly steep hike down from the common area. Bring a light source for sure. The campsite is very nice and may come with a friendly K9 companion. He led us to the site and in return he expected to spend the night in the tent with us. There is a waterfall near by. The true highlight for us was the farm workers and the dog we renamed "Mosquito", they made our stay completely inspiring.
Arriving at night proved to be slightly challenging but well worth it. In fact, the approach leading through the hills and progressively narrower roads until one reaches a point where it seems like any visible signs of civilization are left behind adds to the experience.
Although not strictly speaking "wild camping", it's pretty close. The serene river, flickering fireflies, droning forest sounds of insects, and divine Milky Way above made it a particularly nice spot to meditate at night. On the other hand, waking up with the birds and Sun seeping through, spilling warm colors all over the valley fills one with energy right from the get go.
Slice of heaven!
Drew's beautiful slice of heaven was exactly what we were looking for in a camping experience. Our kids will never forget it! We were entirely secluded and immersed in nature during our three day stay- solely accompanied by Drew's sweet and loving dog, who put joy into our hearts the whole time we were there. Having a clean, beautiful river as a front yard, just steps away from the campsite and in the middle of untamed gorgeous vegetation, was purely magical. Its worth mentioning we emphasized to Drew we did not want to interact with other people due to the COVID-19 situation. Drew took this to heart by being very attentive and responsive through messaging from beginning to end. Thank you, Drew!
The site was beautiful. You really feel secluded and in the middle of a jungle. The river is right in-front of the campsite so you can jump in when you are feeling hot or want to go for a swim.
The only recommendation I can give future campers is to avoid rainy season. The path down to the campsite got very, very muddy because of the rain and we had a hard time going up and down - especially since we had coolers and multiple bags. The site itself can also get pretty muddy so you have to watch that the mud doesn't get into the tent.
Besides the mud, everything else was great. We hiked along the river for about 1.5 hours up stream and found some ponds that were really beautiful.
Going in the rainy season is bad
The place to leave the car is not the best, much less if you go in a low car. The way to get to the camping area is to go with two packages of back and nothing else. It is uncomfortable. It is not recommended to go in the rainy season. The way to get to Las Marias San Sebastián is bad. The volunteer was very nice, in fact, she was going to accompany us to the area to show us everything, but we did not feel safe because of the weather so we left. Drew sent me the information, photos. He was very kind. Apparently he speaks only English, so if you only speak Spanish you will need a translator for most.
