Bed & Breakfast
Please note we require all guests be vaccinated against COVID-19 per government mandate
We are perched above the Cubuy River (Coo-buoy), hence the ecolodge's name, Casa Cubuy. The name originates from the Taino Indian language, meaning "wherever you step, there is water".
ABOUT OUR ECOLODGE
There are fewer and fewer places on Earth free from civilization. Ecotourists visit these places during their exploration and discovery of the area. Casa Cubuy Ecolodge, situated within the proclamation boundary of the El Yunque Rainforest is such a facility because:
We have a small footprint in the forest
We generate our own electricity with solar panels
We recycle and compost
We urge our guests to take nothing our of the forest and leave only footprints
We participate in community efforts to preserve and protect the forest
In the minds of some, the term “ecolodge” is associated with bare bones accommodations, one step up from camping. This is not us. We provide the comforts and amenities to merit a 4-5 star rating from our guests over our 20+ year history.
The rate at Casa Cubuy includes breakfast. Guests at the three rooms of Sierra Palms have a shared kitchen to prepare their own meals. However, breakfast and lunch at ecolodge are available for $12 each, with notice the night before, for SP guests.
Guests at Casa Cubuy and Sierra Palms both have access to private hiking trails to the Cubuy River.
There are nearby trails for both beginner and advanced hikers.
After a ten minute walk up road 191, guests will see the sign that says "You are entering the El Yunque National Forest". Another fifteen minute walk will lead hikers to a passive recreation area. From there, trails will take you deep into the forest.
WIFI is spotty at Casa Cubuy due to mountains blocking the signal, but Sierra Palms has high speed connection. Casa Cubuy has a deposit with Starlink that is scheduled to arrive in Puerto Rico in January of 2022. Starlink is Elon Musk's satellites that offer WIFI to any location around the globe. Hopefully, this will provide improved connectivity.
The nearest beaches, snorkeling, boardwalks, local restaurants, horseback riding, hang gliding and shops are a thirty minute drive from Casa Cubuy!
