Without heating but cozy and snug with fleece blankets, standard domes are the perfect home to return to after a day's journey.
Standard domes consist of double or twin beds with large and comfortable shared bathrooms divided by gender. Both male and female bathrooms have showers with ample space to dry and put on clothes, hot water, composting toilets, and hand wash basins.
The domes are decorated with a Patagonian decor and receive ample sunlight during the day. Towels are provided upon arrival and you are asked to use the same towels during their stay. In addition, standard domes do not have electricity. But, you can charge your cameras in community domes.
Suite domes cater to those looking to combine adventure and nature immersion. They are designed for sleeping in the highest level of comfort allowed by sustainable development in a natural untarnished environment. Suite domes are comfortable geodesic domes built in the same shape as the ancient Kaweskar tribe dwellings.
Suite domes consist of comfortable double or twin beds, a private bathroom with a state of the art composting toilet, and a modern low-emission wood stove. Electricity is very limited inside the domes. Therefore, hairdryers are not permitted, but laptops and cameras can be charged.
