Preserved nature

  • A small protected wild island

Discover the rare plants and majestic animals of Isla Pastores, a small wild island preserved from tourism.

Located south of Almirante bay and east of San Cristóbal, Isla Pastores boasts a rich flora and fauna. On its land as off its coast, the wild life deploys its many assets and parade as if to better seduce you.

The forest has the particularity of having remained intact over most of its territory. It is the absence of the terrible devastating cyclones that has allowed its conservation.

The flora thus protected represents an exceptional value for those passionate about botany.

  • Abundance of fruit trees

As you walk through the finca, you will discover an abundant variety of fruit trees with signs indicating their species: mango, pineapple, guava, cocoa … the list goes on.

It is with these harvests that we make our dishes and fresh cocktails served at the bar and in the restaurant. Locally grown and full of flavors!
