El Nido del Tigre or The Tiger's Nest is your home and mid-way point of the Pacure River raft trip.  Its name comes from the giant patches of ginger plants which fall and create the shape of a tiger’s nest. From the center of the nest, trails radiate throughout the rainforest and along the river.

Our camp has a dual personality. At times it is a hive of activity perhaps with a soccer or Frisbee game, or teams frantically hurrying into the camp to record their finish time in a racing challenge. While at other times it is a peaceful, tranquil and relaxing environment following a day on the rapids.

At meal times the camp adopts different atmospheres depending on its guests. Sometimes it is host to sociable buzzing tables of excited conversations while at others to the beat of gentle romance.

One of its other guises is in welcoming groups involved in sometimes bizarre and other times intriguing learning activities.

Sustainability is a key word at El Nido del Tigre as we strive to achieve the perfect harmony between rainforest and tourism. The camp has captured the imagination of the local people, many of whom we thank for their assistance and patience in building this unusual environment and a number of them who remain with us on our continuing journey to develop the dream.

Spacious tents on fixed platforms co-mingle with the forest and border the river.
