The resort has been designed for attracting travelers that enjoy camping in mountain forests, tubing and kayaking.

The lodge now has solar panels to provide electricity, water heaters within the guest rooms and has new equipment to allow guests to enjoy camping, tubing and kayaking. Visitors close to the Jamao River located in Los Bueyes northern community in the Espillat province will also be able to enjoy horse riding and hiking on trails.
