It includes ground transportation to Or from our villa on to San Jose, day of rafting, breakfast and lunch.

Please let me know if I can help in booking this rafting trip. -------------------------------------------------- Eco-Friendly Custom Villa- The owner took great architectural consideration in using as much native natural materials as possible and still defining the comforts of the clients standards. The foundation was constructed of gavel and the base walls of dirt. The dirt was excavated from the properties private swimming pool and filled in the earth bags. After filling the bags with gravel and dirt they are then laid one on top of the other to form the walls. The walls are then stuccoed to protect the bags from the elements and finished for a stylish unique earthen/ Adobe look. The earth bags materials are of recycled polypropylene bulk bags. (Please see the pictures of the front of the house defining the detail of the adobe structure and look). All the lighting fixtures and accessories were hand-made from natural materials such as wood and coconut shells, thus eliminating the use of synthetic products. Custom low voltage LED lighting used for energy conservation.
