Please be very careful. They canceled the program we paid for, promised a full refund but now will not reply to emails. They owe us $3750 and I have heard from many people in the same situation. They say that they are ethical, but it is a SCAM.

This place felt like a home away from home instantly. Everyone was so welcoming right away and we made friendships that will last forever. The food was great and so was the campfire at night. The chickens, dogs and cats make the experience even better. There is a lot to do all around there and tours you can take. I did the Jaguar Falls hike and it was beautiful!! They are so accommodating and want you to have the best experience. I can’t wait to come back and thank you for everything!!

We booked 1 week for 3 person and paid all inclusive $770. Upon arrival we were shocked. The place is completely neglected. None of the free activities like Yoga, painting, etc were available, everything else was super expensive and a scam. The food was actually the worst we had aver seen (see pictures) and super little. Gabage and neglected construction material all over the place. Buildings and sport areas are in complete disrepair. Mosquito nets had the big holes. Internet was super slow and is just available at the bar. No electricity at night. The manager started drinking beer at 9 am and that's how the entire place is managed. Outrageous. We left after 3 days and are still waiting for the promised refund.

Thank you so much for all the kind words! I know everyone had a great time on the biology night hike, that was a particularly fun one! Let us know if you want to come back again soon and we will make sure your stay is just as great, maybe even better! Best, - The Team at Kalu Yala

I feel the positive energy around Kalu Yala the first I get into it. I have enjoyed staying between nature listening to all-natural sounds.
The personal staff, rooms and place itself are fabulous.
I would back again!

Room tip: "The Jungle Teepee area does not have WIFI"
