CAMP RESOURCES  (how we can thrive in the desert)
Our Punta San Carlos Campo is almost totally self sufficient. We make our own electrical power from solar & wind.  It is a precious delicate resource that requires all of us to be prudent in our usage.

 Internet use does have daily allotments of bandwidth from our provider that when depleted, severely restricts further use for that 24 hr. time period. When you arrive, the Camphost will explain conditions for Internet use.

Our fresh water is delivered from town 50 miles away. Drinking water is also delivered. Every guest is allowed 1 hot shower a day. There is usually enough of all these resources for everyone to have a good time - weather permitting.
