Your Stay at the Lodge
Vacationing at the lodge allows you to experience the real Puerto Rico, away from the cities and the crowds, but still close enough to enjoy them if you prefer. The lodge is located between the central mountains and the beautiful beaches of the southwest coast. Every day you can choose activities at the beach or in the mountains, meeting friendly people everywhere you go, and sampling the local food and drink. Many of the small mountain towns in this area still have no fast food restaurants or chain stores.
Your stay at the lodge is in your own private cabin. Some are simple sleeping cabins and some have a bathroom and small kitchen. The lodge itself has bathrooms, private showers and a common kitchen. Sharing the open pavillion, indoor sitting area, or kitchen is a great way to meet your fellow travelers and compare notes on the beaches and sights of "Porta del Sol".
You get the added benefit of knowing that you are helping to provide cancer survivors with free "Restorative Escape" stays just by staying with us yourself.
As a survivor, you may be looking for a simple change of scenery, or a whole new take on life. Our lodge and the surrounding southwest corner of the island provide endless options to explore, enjoy, and share with your family. Maybe you prefer just to find a quiet spot to meditate and sort it all out...you will find that here also. Tropical plants, birds to watch, slow walks in the forest, or sun and sand are all here for you to enjoy. Every day opens anew before you and will help you find your way in your new life.
Your stay will be in your own cabin including private bathroom and mini kitchen. You can share the common areas of the main lodge with vacationing guests or other survivors if you choose. Services such as massage therapy, yoga, exercise, arts and crafts, and special skills workshops can be arranged privately, or in a group setting.
