San Agustin base camp is on the 200 acre San
Agustin private rain forest reserve which borders
the edge of Costa Rica's largest wilderness area.
We are located 35 km southeast of Turrialba.  

We have built an authentic escape for the
seasoned traveler, camper and nature lover. We
offer travelers and adventurers a chance to
explore the untamed side of Costa Rica. We have a
low maintenance; self help camp ground sustained
by visitor donations. Dry shelter, spring water,
wood stove, and pots and pans are provided for
visitors. Base camp has an 8 km trail which you
can hike on your own. Once you arrive at camp,
ask about family style meals, day hikes, horseback
riding and wilderness backpacking.

To get to base camp, follow the
maps and
directions posted on the maps and directions link.  
Without a reservation it is possible no one will
receive you at base camp.  Just make yourself at
home!

here that this place is solid gold and that the Dohle
family are the same -Solid Gold."
