Marcos has built a wonderful oasis in the jungle. The grounds are impeccable. The accommodations, although rustic, are clean. Our cabana had an attached cold shower and toilet. The food was excellent, especially after a full-day of adventure. Marcos is not only a professional guide who puts safety first, he also is great host with a talent for storytelling that kept everyone interested and engaged. My two kids (ages 12, 13 yrs) loved playing with his two dogs and cats.
We stayed at the Jungle Camp 2 nights and went on two tours with Marcos, Crystal Cave and cave kayaking. Marcos was well prepared with his first aid kit. In the cave, my son slipped and scraped his back. Marcos cleaned his abrasion while reassuring him he was OK . Even though the rest of us were eager to get going, Marcos didn’t make my son feel rushed. He waited patiently until my son calmed down and was ready to continue. During the kayak trip, my daughter came down with a fever, so we used his first aid kit again for Tylenol. Within 30 min my daughter was well enough to continue and enjoy the rest of the trip.
If you choose to go on adventures with Marcos, I would suggest staying at the Jungle Camp for the full experience. The lodging is extremely economical (we got a discount since we booked our adventure trips with him) and our meals were included.
Useful items to bring: bug repellant, head lamps, dry bag for adventure trips.
