There are four ways to visit the Jama-Coaque Reserve:
1) Tourism – you can make a day-trip to hike the trails with a local guide. Unfortunately, at present we are not prepared to accommodate overnight tourists in the Reserve. We plan to open our doors to tourists looking for overnight lodging in the near future.
2) Internship – you can join one of our many internship opportunities in the fields of Ecology, Permaculture, Agroforestry, etc.
3) Research – you can study, work, or conduct research at the Bamboo House Research & Education Center during an extended stay. Our staff is available to assist with any permitting activities.
4) Study Abroad – you can visit the Reserve with your study abroad course. Our staff is available to give guest lectures.
Because of our remote location and lack of internet, our team needs at least 10 days notice if you would like to visit the reserve.
Hiking the public access trails: Trails are open! Contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Visit the “Bamboo House” Research & Education Center: People invited to visit the “Bamboo House” Research Station include:

- Representatives from local, regional, national and international institutions, be it governmental or nongovernmental, with whom we are jointly working to protect this ecosystem and improve regional land management practices
- People from local communities interested in learning and sharing information about ecology and sustainable land management strategies
- Patrons of the Jama-Coaque Reserve are welcome to visit for three nights free of charge.
Due to the complexities of transport, scheduling, and supplies, all visits must be arranged at least 10 days in advance. Sleeping space is limited and we only store enough food and supplies for the number of people scheduled to be onsite.
Please review our JCR Rates & Reservations document for prices and instructions for how to arrange your visit to the reserve.
