We are located in the central western Mountainous region of Puerto Rico in the town of Utuado. Our family have been in this path for over a decade, dedicating our lives to protect, preserve and share our Native-Indigenous Culture, and please do not compare us with other tour companies, our family live with an ecological-counsciosness, making every-day a Living Ceremony. Our responsability with the Natural environment haved come to be one of Our passions in life. Our family lives in a self-sufficient Mountain house, using solar-powered energy, catching rain water and using Natural spring waters to feed our family. We plant some of the food that we consume, in an Organic way.
