Estancia Peuma Hue consists of several villas and cabins spread throughout the 500-acre property as well as a number of yurts set in a “community” overlooking the lake. We offer these accommodations on a first-come first-served basis allowing guests to have their pick of the available units. All accommodations fall within our fixed package pricing—see our packages pages for more information.
Environmentally and Socially Conscious Accommodations
At Peuma Hue we try to incorporate social, environmental and community development practice and consciousness in everything we do. From hiring locally and offering housing for our staff, to improving the living conditions of those around us, we endeavor to be conscientious in all our business practices with the ultimate goal of being a positive force in the universe.
Environmentally beneficial practices
When we first arrived at Estancia Peuma Hue the property was in very poor condition with cattle grazing and illegal timber harvesting and fishing—this despite being located in a national park. Since our arrival, the native forest is returning, we are eradicating invasive species, and we have ended illegal timber harvesting and fishing. In doing so, we have fostered environmental consciousness in those living in and visiting the property.
Each year more migrating birds are choosing Peuma Hue as their nesting and breeding home. We recycle all our garbage, using the organic waste for the compost that goes to our vegetable and greenhouse. We urge our staff and guests to monitor their consumption of water and energy. We are currently in the process of installing a small hydro-electric power plant as a source of clean and renewable energy. Our vegetable garden and greenhouse are organic, free from chemicals, pesticides and fertilizers. Our sewage and drainage systems were built following the National Park’s regulations to help maintain our pristine groundwater.
Practices that financially benefit the local community
Since our arrival we gathered tour operators and hotel owners within the south end of the National Park creating an association that fosters a different kind of tourism: environmentally conscious, with small groups, personalized service and a strong love and passion for the area. We founded the active tourism board and active tourism corporate bureau in our town. We assist local NGOs focused in culturally diverse and integrated educational programs, providing labor to their students from native and rural origins to practice the learning they acquired, providing the venue to sell their handicrafts and raising consciousness among our guests about the need of support in the area.
Health & Wellbeing beneficial practices
Staying at Peuma Hue is healthy in itself. Without necessarily formal practices, it is highly common for our guests to undergo personal transformation, deeply felt experiences, deep connections to other people, animals, nature and within themselves with an expanded feeling of peace and connection.
It is a “natural Spa”, enhanced also by other services we offer such as massages, healing, meditation, Yoga, our Wellbeing Program, Personal Development Workshops and Connection to Nature.
