Your adventure begins where the road ends! Participants will have the incredible opportunity to experience long term National Geographic scientist-Dr. Brady Barr's and wife and owner of Eco Adventures Mei Len Sanchez-Barr's, very own Private Reserve “Nama Laka” (Meaning the land of jaguars in ancient Bri Bri language). Nama Laka consists of 150 acres of very remote, pristine rainforest, crystal clear rivers and streams, waterfalls and giant trees, and abundant wildlife including: 3 species of monkeys, poison dart frogs, green winged macaws, toucans, endangered tapir, ocelots, morpho butterflies and more! Nama Laka borders over 100,000 acres of the National Park, Braullio Carillo, one of Costa Rica's largest protected areas. We cannot guarantee what animals or experiences you will be blessed with, but what we can guarantee, is that this will be a private experience for you and your party. This will be your very own private Eden during your stay. You will not see or hear humanity at Nama Laka, other than the local neighbors…vaquaros (cowboys) riding the road or driving their cattle. Experiencing Nama Laka is like going back in time. Here, owing to the remoteness of the area, and primitive dirt road, residents of the area utilize horseback or ox cart to travel the region during their daily lives. So you will climb aboard a “chapulin” (open air tractor) which will navigate the dirt roads and cross the swift streams, all while you enjoy the spectacular scenery in route (temporary delays sometimes occur if you come across vaquaros driving their cattle down the road…but no worries, it is a fantastic picture opportunity and memory you won't soon forget. Before you know it you will arrive at the treehouse lodge, where accommodations are 25 feet up in an open-air platform where you won't just experience nature…you will be a part of it.
