Seemingly perched on the edge of civilization “Campo Cortez” offers many modern amenities while maintaining a clean, comfortable and eco-friendly environment. The base camp provides a modern solar and wind generation system in our dining palapa and library that provides 110 ac or 12 volt dc power for all of your charging needs. You can connect charge up your video and camera batteries anytime in the dining palapa day or night. Constructed from local materials and by traditional building methods, our palapa is the gathering point for all of our daily activities.
