Happy holidays from Earth Train! This holiday season we’re grateful for the opportunity to enjoy the escape, serenity and natural beauty that Centro Mamoní provides. We celebrated by building a tent on our newly constructed platform (Gracias, Rolando!), eating together, and lighting our tree in the main house.

We had a number of visitors, including one of our neighbor’s horses, blue morpho and owl butterflies, many emerald hummingbirds, a series of beautiful moths, a yellow-striped poison frog (Phyllobates lugubris), a red-breasted trogon, a green vine snake, and a Bothrops viper (known locally by its ominous moniker, X). Check out our gallery of images.

So again: happy holidays and New Year from our family to yours!
