Mariposa Azul Base Camp

In December 2022, we opened our second base camp and took our next big step as an organization! The Mariposa Azul Base Camp is close to Playa Carate, and allows our field team to cover this area of the beach that is logistically complicated to reach from Rio Oro (our original base camp location). This camp is also nestled in the heart of the Carate community, close to the local church and school, as well as the homes of a number of local families. This project allows us to keep more in touch with the community, and focus on education and sustainable development to compliment our conservation efforts.

The Mariposa Azul Base Camp is equipped with:

  • Clean drinking water

  • Single beds

  • Shared and private accommodation

  • Shower and toilet block

  • Basic solar power

  • Handwashing laundry station

  • Parking / camping area

  • Communal area​​

  • Fully equipped kitchen
