Are We Compatible?
Everyone is sensitized and conditioned to different things. Two people could be walking along the same trail in its forest and one may be thinking "How amazing are these trees?" while the other is only thinking "These insects and mud are unbearable!" If you are not comfortable camping then you probably won't enjoy a stay here. A few visitors have not wanted to live in a sustainable way while here. Others have had a negative impact on the local community by their way of socializing.

If you have something to contribute to the community and wish to have a positive impact on another culture, if you believe the human spirit is stronger than its vices and capable of changing toward a more just and meaningful life, if you have an open mind, a desire to learn, get yourself dirty and sweat without worrying about small discomforts, if you want to be part of the solution and not part of the problem, it is very likely that you will fit in very well here in Selva Chi.
