Is this trip right for you?
The campsite we stay at is clean & well-maintained. However, Agumbe being a remote location, luxuries such as cots & beds, fans etc can’t be expected. Part of the experience here is learning to be resourceful with the available facilities. Internet access is scarce and is unreliable when it’s available. But you must know that though there’s no WiFi in nature, you’ll get a stronger connection 😜. This is a no-frills trip to a relatively remote place therefore food will be basic.
