About the neighborhood

Spirit Mountain Coffee Plantation is an organic coffee farm that we purchased in 2003 with a dear friend, Jeff Loftsgaarden. It is in a tropical area, so you can expect rain and warm weather year round. Endemic and migratory birds make the coffee canopy their home. Bring your binoculars to see how many varieties of birds you can spot! Spirit Mountain is an active coffee farm and our harvest is October through May. You will likely see our staff in action taking care of the coffee crop.

Getting around

A 4×4 vehicle is STRONGLY recommended. We receive a large amount of rain, which can make the roads difficult to navigate. There are a number of hiking trails all over the farm to enjoy. If you are new to the Dominican Republic, Spirit Mountain is located about 2 hours from Santiago de los Caballeros (which has an international airport).

How to get there

Finding Spirit Mountain can be a challenge! Use Google Maps to find us.  

Follow the highway from Jarabacoa to Manabao. Once you pass the public school in Manabao, take the main dirt road to the right that leads you to Angostura. The creek will be on your left as you drive up towards the farm. (Keep looking for brown and white signs that point to Spirit Mountain.) Continue for 3 kilometers or so. The road will get continuously more 4×4 as you progress up the road. Cross over the bridge that goes over the creek and continue up the 4×4 road to the entrance of the coffee farm. Our property managers, Deivy and Rosa, live in the house just before the entrance. Stop and check in with them before continuing onto the property. Once inside the coffee farm, follow the main road up to the right to the campsite. If it has been raining, you will need a 4×4 vehicle to get in and out of the campsite.

VISITING THE CAMPSITE

 

The campsite is located in the middle of the coffee farm, which is accessible with a 4×4 vehicle. Potable water is available from the outdoor kitchen. The campsite has no electricity. Firewood is available upon request.

This is a campsite, meaning you’ll be responsible for bringing your own sleeping bag, sleeping pad, flashlight, towel, and toilet paper.

Two shelters are available at the campsite in case you do not have a tent. 

A cold water outdoor shower and latrine are also located at the campsite. 

Vehicles are NOT allowed in the campsite area.  Vehicles can be parked on the road next to the campsite. 

 

Outdoor Kitchen

There are no stores or restaurants nearby, so be sure to bring plenty of food for your stay.

The outdoor kitchen is available to prep food.  Guests will also need to bring their own propane tank and kitchen supplies (pots and pans, plates, utensils, etc.)

There is a covered dining area above the kitchen.

Guests are expected to remove all trash from the campsite when they leave.

Simple meals to prepare while camping:

  • Oatmeal and hot chocolate (only hot water is needed!)
  • Instant coffee
  • Pancakes and fruit
  • Sandwiches with chips and salsa
  • Pasta with pesto, spaghetti sauce, or canned tuna and cheese
  • Foil pack dinner: (best to prepare and bring ready to cook at the campsite).  Ingredients: Pre-cooked sausage, pre-cooked potatoes,  chopped onion, peppers, zucchini, salt, pepper, garlic, red pepper. Prepare a hot fire and allow to burn down into coals.  Using two layers of aluminum foil, place ingredients in the foil, add oil and seasonings, roll up carefully and place in the hot coals.  Allow to cook for 15-30 minutes.  
  • Other foil pack recipes
  • Planning to camp for several days?  Try vegan recipes (no dairy or meat).  No refrigeration is necessary for ingredients!

    Our Story

    In 2003, Chad Wallace and Jeff Loftsgaarden purchased a 350 acre coffee plantation that had been in the Lopez family since the early 1970’s.  Since then, the Wallace family, under Chad’s leadership, has taken a very hands on approach to creating a unique agro-forestry project with a vibrant focus on educational tourism, all revolving around coffee and set up to benefit educational reform.
